The Oscar-winning actress recently uprooted little Apple, nine, and Moses, seven, from their North London home to be near her family in Los Angeles.

However, the 41-year-old admitted the move was an “experiment” and she now plans on bringing them back to Blighty in a couple of years along with hubby and Coldplay singer, Chris Martin, 36.

Gwyn said: “I don’t want my children to be teenagers in LA. No way. I’m looking at this move to America like two years, three years tops – then we will go back.

“It’s part of my parenting philosophy that children should get the opportunity to reinvent themselves at a few points in their childhood to see where their strengths and weaknesses lie and to experience living in different cultures. It’s an experiment.”

In the rather frank interview with Red magazine, out November 6, added: “I feel the work/life balance of a woman should be exactly what feels right to her. F**k what anybody else says – it doesn’t matter what they think.”

The star of Sliding Doors and Shakespeare in Love lived in England for a decade before heading to the States and called the capital her “adoptive home”.

She said: “I love London – it’s my favourite city in the world. I love my house and my life there. But in California, I have the girls I grew up with and my family.
