Actress Gwyneth Paltrow Says Divorce From Ex Rocker Husband Chris Martin Was Very Painful

Academy Award winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow is opening up for the first time on her doomed marriage to ‘Coldplay’ front-man, Chris Martin. She is speaking out about her painful divorce that was finalized in July of 2016 after a two year legal separation. The couple married in 2003, and have two children, Apple,13, and Moses,11. When the pair announced their separation, they said they were “consciously uncoupling.” The term was met with less than enthusiastic responses from fans and foes alike. For her part, Paltrow says she prefers to put a “positive spin” on everything, rather than just being negative.

Although she tried to come up with a positive term to the end of their marriage, she says it was extremely painful, and she’s glad her children were still very young. The actress said she tried to take responsibility for the split, and didn’t blame Martin for any of it. She put her children first and for her that meant owning her part in the split. Paltrow says she reminded herself daily of all the things she first loved about Martin. However she says she fostered a very good friendship with Martin, but she says”what I put myself to get there was the most difficult thing I’ve ever done in my life.”

Hindsight being 20/20, she says she knows the term was rather “dorky”, but people eventually came around, and thought it’s not the worst term in the world. Paltrow is the daughter of actress Blythe Danner and the late director, producer Bruce Paltrow, and started acting when she was a teenager. She said her children are handling fame very well. They were taught by their parents that they have extraordinary lives with opportunities many don’t have. However she said girls today are more confident and self-possessed than previous generations. She added “in Apple’s peer group, I don’t see the insecurity I saw at that age.”
