Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin: ‘Not A Public Couple’

Gwyneth Paltrow, 36, graces the cover of Elle magazine’s “Fashion Issue” and in the accompanying interview explains that her marriage to Coldplay’s Chris Martin is solid.

Fitness queen Paltrow, who has two children with Martin (Apple, 4, and Moses, 2), says that their strict “no red carpet appearances together” policy might lead people to believe they’re not together, but “so be it.”

“It doesn’t behoove us to be a public couple,” the celebrity blogger says in the interview, according to People.

“He certainly doesn’t want to be that. We’ve never ever walked down a red carpet together, we never will. If people think that that means we’re not together, then – ha ha ha! – so be it.”

Martin, 31, has also recently publicly denied that his marriage is in trouble.

Paltrow says that Martin was her rock after the 2002 death of her father, director and writer Bruce Paltrow.

“I’m amazed he stuck with me [at the time her dad died], because I was a wreck. I can’t believe that he did.”

Paltrow will be a presenter at the 51st annual Grammys this weekend, where her husband’s band is nominated seven times, including nods for Song and Record of the Year for their single “Viva La Vida.”

Perhaps they can relax their hands-off on the red carpet policy just this once? It could be a big night for them and it would be nice to have a photo together as a souvenir.
