London: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow says she cries while eating pancakes as they remind her of her late father, Bruce Paltrow.

The 39-year-old always loved breakfast food cooked by Bruce, especially pancakes.

'His barbecued salmon with ginger and thyme and his 'world-famous' pancakes were awesome,' quoted Paltrow as saying.

'It is hard for me to eat them because I keep expecting him to walk into the kitchen when I do. I make them very rarely and I cry every time. They are the essence of him in a food,' she added.
