Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed she is raising her children as Jewish.

Ms Paltrow, whose late father was Jewish film producer Bruce Paltrow, appeared at the Young CST's summer cocktail party in the Jalouse nightclub in central London this week where she spoke to an audience of 100.

She was interviewed by presenter Vanessa Feltz about rediscovering her Jewish background on the Who Do You Think You Are? television programme in America in April, which discussed her father, who came from a long line of east European rabbis.

Her Polish great-great-grandfather was Rabbi Simon Paltrovich.

This has inspired her to raise her children, seven-year-old Apple and five-year-old Moses, in a Jewish environment, she said.
