Gwyneth Paltrow is one of the most successful actresses in the west. The Iron Man actress has done some incredible work in Hollywood including films like The Contagion, Shakespeare In Love, Avengers: Endgame and Seven to name a few. Paltrow married Coldplay’s lead singer, Chris Martin back in 2003 and was one of the most happening couples of that point in time.
The couple got divorced in 2016 and shares two children together named Apple Martin and Moses Martin.
While talking to Vogue, the Iron Man actress reflected on her relationship with Chris Martin and gave some candid answers.
“We were close, though we had never fully settled into being a couple. We just didn’t quite fit together. There was always a bit of unease and unrest. But man, did we love our children,” Gwyneth told the magazine.
The Seven actress further added, “We laughed at the same things, shared a funny bones humour, impressions, utter silliness. We were moved by the same qualities in music: beautiful chords, innovation, harmonies. Peter Gabriel, Chopin, Sigur Rós – though I listened for pleasure and he like he was studying for an exam”, said the Iron Man actress.
“We loved walking to and from Osteria Basilico through the park for pizza, especially on those British summer nights when the sun doesn’t ever seem to set. We loved road trips to the New Forest or to the seaside. But most of all, we loved our children,” shared Gwyneth Paltrow.
Amid the divorce proceedings of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, the actress called her divorce an ‘unconscious coupling’. The term has come from author Katherine Woodward Thomas as a five-step program to promote a ‘calmer alternative’ to amicable divorces.
Talking about the same, Paltrow said, “I had never heard of the phrase ‘conscious uncoupling’. Frankly, the term sounded a bit full of itself, painfully progressive and hard to swallow.”
The Iron Man actress added, “It was an idea introduced to us by our therapist, the man who helped us architect our new future. I was intrigued, less by the phrase, but by the sentiment. Was there a world where we could break up and not lose everything? Could we be a family, even though we were not a couple?”
Gwyneth Paltrow is single and ex-husband Chris Martin is dating actress Dakota Johnson.
