Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow has grown to love Los Angeles, after years of hating California's city of angels.

The Shakespeare In Love actress was surprised when her negative feelings for LA changed when she gave birth to her daughter Apple in 2004.

She says, "I went through a period when I didn't like LA so much, but now I have a child, I really love it again.

"Maybe it's connecting me to my own childhood. I always think that when you're in the place you were born, you sleep better - you have this deep sense of feeling at home."
