In December, Paltrow shared scenes from her Christmas on Instagram, spending time at home in California with son Moses and daughter Apple, 19, whom she shares with ex Chris Martin.

"California Christmas," she captioned a set of shots, one with each of the kids. Mother and son walked on the beach while Paltrow and Apple enjoyed a matching pajama selfie.

While speaking with PEOPLE for a cover story in November, the mom of two shared that she hasn't been in an entire movie since before her daughter Apple was born.

"Well, it's kind of ironic because I really stepped away from acting when Apple was born," Paltrow told PEOPLE of how motherhood has enhanced her career. "The last time I was in every scene of a movie was when I was pregnant with her."

"When I had her, it just, everything felt redefined for me, and I thought, 'I'm not sure that I want to do this so much as a career. I definitely don't want to...I'm not going to go away for months on end.'"

She also revealed a few of her tips for raising teenagers, although she admitted that her kids are pretty well-behaved.

"I have been so lucky with my teens," Paltrow told PEOPLE. "We had, probably when Apple, I would say, was about 13, we had a year where I was like, 'Oh wow, okay,' but actually my kids have been, I kind of didn't have the horrible teen thing, I think because I've always been very, very honest with my kids and I think I've always empowered them with a little bit more freedom and responsibility than they thought they were ready for."

"They've treated it with reverence. I've always said, 'I don't need to give you a curfew unless you give me a reason to give you a curfew,' kind of thing. They're responsible and they've never done anything too crazy."

"I really loved having teenagers," Paltrow affirmed. "I mean, Apple's in her last year of her teenage years now, which is so crazy to me that she'll be 20 on her next birthday. I don't quite know how that happened."
