Angelina Jolie Disses Gwyneth Paltrow? Tells Hollywood Mothers to Stop Complaining

Did Angelina Jolie take a swipe at Gwyneth Paltrow?

Paltrow made eralier comments on her difficult life as a mother and an actress and Jolie now says Hollywood stars ''shouldn't complain'' about struggling to juggle their careers and children.

The 'Maleficent' actress, who has six children, Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and five-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with fiancé Brad Pitt, insists she and her peers have ''much more support than most people'' and shouldn't play down their privileges.

The 38-year-old actress said: ''I'm not a single mom with two jobs trying to get by every day. I have much more support than most people, most women in this world. And I have the financial means to have a home and health care and food.''

The brunette beauty admits she is very lucky to have nannies and to be in the position to turn down work.

She explained to the New York Daily News: ''When I feel I'm doing too much, I do less, if I can. And that's why I'm in a rare position where I don't have to do job after job. I can take time when my family needs it.

''I actually feel that women in my position, when we have all at our disposal to help us, shouldn't complain. Consider all the people who really struggle and don't have the financial means, don't have the support, and many people are single raising children. That's hard.''

Angelina's comments come shortly after 'Iron Man 3' star Gwyneth Paltrow, who once dated Brad, claimed her life was ''harder'' than most.

She said: ''It's much harder for me.

''I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as... of course there are challenges, but it's not like being on set.''
