Gwyneth Paltrow was involved in a terrifying mid-flight plane scare, forcing her to miss the Venice Film Festival.
The stunning actress, who was travelling to the prestigious festival to promote new film 'Proof', was on her way to the Italian city when the aircraft was ordered back to New York after developing technical problems.
But Gwyneth was so determined to help co-star Sir Anthony Hopkins promote the movie, she participated in the film's press conference by telephone link.
The Oscar-winning star, who is married to Coldplay singer Chris Martin, admitted she was reluctant to return to acting after the birth of her baby daughter Apple because she was so "in love" with her new arrival.
She said: "When I had my daughter, I just fell in love with her, so then I was really reticent about leaving her and going back to work 14 hours a day. But I finally went back to work when Apple was 10 months old."
However, Gwyneth confessed she was left heartbroken during shooting because she couldn't put Apple to bed every night.
She added: "I was a bit torn that I couldn't put her to sleep every night.
"Hopefully, the day will come when I can take her with me."
