Extra: "Iron Man 2" leading lady Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed that she went through a bout of depression after the April 2006 birth of her son, Moses, reports Extra.

"It was debilitating," the actress told "Extra's" Jerry Penacoli. "I just couldn't figure out what was wrong with me and why I was so down and disconnected and sort of outside my body."

She credits her husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, with helping her recognize the problem.

"My husband actually was like, 'You're not OK. What's going on?' -- and then it was like a burst of a bubble, and I realized there was something wrong. Then I started to deal with it."

Nonetheless, Paltrow looked radiant at the "Iron Man 2" junket, which she joked was because she was pregnant again. (She's not.)

Did you battle postpartum depression, like Gwyneth?
