Iron Man star Gwyneth Paltrow has spoken of her love of Spanish life and culture when compared to the high paced New York lifestyle.
"(The Spanish) seem to enjoy life a little bit more. They aren't running around as much as in New York. They enjoy time with the family. They don't always have their Blackberries on," says the actress.
Gwyneth fell in love with the country after spending a year living with a family in central Spain when she was 15.
"Spain became a second home. It is so different from the United States," she said in a recent interview, conducted in fluent Spanish to promote her culinary show Spain ... on the Road Again. "It seemed to have a history, and the buildings are years and years and years old."
