Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter wants to be an actress.

The 'Iron Man' star's mother, actress Blythe Danner, claims five-year-old Apple - Gwyneth's eldest child with husband Chris Martin - is already showing signs of wanting to follow in the footsteps of her famous family.

Blythe told In Touch magazine: "I definitely think she has that certain something. She's very funny and beautiful. She adores her mother, and I think she likes me, and I think she probably likes to follow in footsteps."

While the 'Waiting For Forever' actress admits her grandson, four-year-old Moses, is currently more interested in "'Star Wars' Lego", she believes he may also want to become an actor eventually.

She added: "It's in their blood."

Blythe - whose husband, director Bruce Paltrow, died in 2002 - also praised her daughter as a "phenomenal" mother to Apple and Moses.

She said: "She really, really invests herself in an unusual way. She spends a lot of time with them - she answers everything, she anticipates, she never surprises them.

"They're well-prepared for the travel and all the things that go on. They're very happy kids."
