Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has said she hopes that her split from musician Chris Martin has “added something positive to the culture of divorce”. The Talented Mr. Ripley star said that even though she and the Coldplay frontman had “consciously uncoupled,” they still shared a very close bond, and her ex husband would still “take a bullet” for her.
Ms Paltrow, 44, who has two children – Apple, 12, and Moses, 10 – with Chris said she hoped that other couples heading for a break up would have been inspired by the way the pair had handled their divorce. The pair share custody of their youngsters.
In an interview for InStyle magazine, she said: “To this day, Chris would take a bullet for me. Even though I’m not his wife. I honestly think Chris and I have contributed something positive to the culture of divorce.”
Just living her life
The Oscar winning actress often comes under fire for her musings on her website GOOP, but she said she does not care if people think what she is taking about is odd. She said when she turned 40, it was as if she had had some sort of “software upgrade” and she now lives her life without worrying about what everyone else thinks of her.
Ms Paltrow is now in a relationship with the TV producer Brad Falchuk, 45, who is best known for producing the series Glee as well as the American Horror Story franchise. Since his split from Ms Paltrow, Mr Martin has been linked to Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence. However, he is now understood to be with Annabelle Wallis, who like Ms Paltrow and Ms Lawrence, is also a willowy blonde.
The English actress, 32, is best known for playing Jane Seymour in the television show The Tudors, Bridget in the ABC drama Pan Am, and Mia Form in the horror movie Annabelle.
