Shakespeare in Love star Gwyneth Paltrow says the depression she went through following the death of her father and birth of her son was good as it helped put her life in perspective.

The emotional turmoil in her personal life left the 39-year-old Oscar winner suffering postpartum depression after baby Moses was born in 2006, reported Vanity Fair magazine.

"I didn't know really what was wrong with me. It changed me. It was great because it also became so clear to me what was important to me. At that time I just had no interest in career whatsoever. My agents would be like, 'This is getting weird. If you don't (get) re-engaged everyone's gonna forget about you.' I was like, 'I don't care. I'm not leaving the babies'. It was so worth it," she said.
