Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin surely had a beautiful marriage. The celebrity couple share two children and they are very good friends and committed parents, despite their split. Well, it seems that Gwyneth decided to talk about their separation and said that it was a gradual process. It seems that what Gwyneth wanted to share is the fact that their separation was something that occurred smoothly for their children.
The actress revealed that the formerly married couple had a year of quiet separation. At that time she was filming for movie Mortdecai and she even asked for advice from Johnny Depp. The actor was just separated from his longtime partner, Vanessa Paradis, with whom he shares two children.
The Iron Man star went on to reveal that no one really knew that she and her husband were going through this. “Nobody knew what Chris and I had been going through, so I didn’t say ‘Hey, this is what’s happening.’ But I did ask him mostly children-centric questions, like ‘How is it on them? How did you do it?’,” she shared. However, Gwyneth did not reveal what Depp has told her and if any of the advices she received helped her. Well, the celebrity couple went to announce their separation in March 2014.
The official announcement on the split was made on Gwyneth’s lifestyle Goop. “It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” the post said, “We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate,” it added.
In the same post, the couple wanted to clarify the fact that they still remain a family, despite the separation. “We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.” And what is very interesting about this couple is that these words were not in vain. The two really remained very close friends.
