Gwyneth Paltrow praises role model Taylor Swift

Gwyneth Paltrow is relieved that Taylor Swift is her daughter Apple's idol.

11-year-old Apple, whose father is Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, is a huge fan of the 25-year-old singer/songwriter and Gwyneth thinks she is a great role model for young girls because she is "not naked on the red carpet".

Gwyneth, who famously went commando in a sheer dress at the 'Iron Man 3' premiere in Hollywood in 2013, told PEOPLE: "She loves Taylor Swift, and for me, that's such a great sign. Taylor is a girl who's incredibly talented. She writes her own music. She's not naked on the red carpet. She's an incredibly astute businesswoman, so with role models like that, [Apple] can't go wrong."

Gwyneth also said she is excited for Apple's future as women are more in control of their destiny's than ever before.

She explained: "I really think that that generation is going to do something very special. Those girls, they are so in their power. They are absolutely shameless in terms of their femininity, and I think we're on the verge of something really exciting."
