Married since she was eleven years old to Chris Martin, leader of the group Coldplay, Gwyneth Paltrow had separated from her husband in 2014. Still close to the singer with whom she had two children, Apple and Moses (16 and 14 years old), the actress was opened up about their split in the September issue of British Vogue. In an article about her ‘conscious breakup’, Gwyneth Paltrow recalled what they shared: “My ex and I have always been friends. We laughed at the same things, we shared funny humor, impressions, Total stupidity. We were moved by the same qualities in the music: beautiful chords, innovation, harmonies (…) But above all, we loved our children ”.
They tried to save their partner
Only, if the couple was close, their relationship was always “a bit uneasy and confused.” “We had never fully established ourselves as a couple,” said Gwyneth Paltrow. Despite her children, the actress and singer could not save their relationship after several attempts. “From the day I found out and the day we finally gave in to the truth, we tried everything. We didn’t want to fail. We didn’t want to let anyone down. We didn’t desperately want to hurt our children. We didn’t want to fail. We didn’t want to lose our children. family. ”Since then, Gwyneth Paltrow has rebuilt her life with producer Brad Falchuk, whom she married in 2018, while Chris Martin has been in a relationship with actress Dakota Johnson since 2017.
