"She was talking about how it was the perfect part for her mom, and proudly told Gavin about her mom's theatre history, said the onlooker. "
New York, June 20 - Actress Gwyneth Paltrow was so moved by her mother Blythe Danner's performance on the stage that she started crying.

Sitting in the audience at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles Wednesday night, Paltrow watched Danner, 71, a Tony award-winning actress, perform in The Country House, and was moved by one of the play's more dramatic moments, reports people.com.

She was tearing up at a scene where her mother - who plays a legendary actress - has a confrontation with her grown up, depressed son, a theatre goer said. It was sweet to see her watching her mom.

Joining Paltrow for the night out was close friend Gavin Rossdale, who was spotted waiting in the Geffen lobby before she arrived. The pals then chatted in their seats.

She was talking about how it was the perfect part for her mom, and proudly told Gavin about her mom's theatre history, said the onlooker.

The Chekhov-inspired play, which also stars Scott Foley, is headed to Broadway this fall.
