Gwyneth Paltrow: I ‘Contributed Something Positive to the Culture of Divorce’

No bad blood here.

Gwyneth Paltrow, the self-proclaimed “common woman,” believes her infamous “conscious uncoupling” with ex-husband Chris Martin has more or less changed the so-called “culture of divorce” for the better. In her interview with InStyle for its February 2017 issue, the Oscar winner opens up about her amicable split with the Coldplay frontman and how they co-parent their two kids, Apple, 12, and Moses, 10.

“He’s at my house every single day,” the 44-year-old said of Martin, 39, who has since been linked to Jennifer Lawrence and is now dating actress Annabelle Wallis. “We have our own lives but we still have our family life.”

“To this day, Chris would take a bullet for me, even though I’m not his wife,” she shared. “I honestly think Chris and I have contributed something positive to the culture of divorce.”

As for her own relationship with boyfriend Brad Falchuk, who also shares two children with their former spouse, Paltrow explains, “He has his own version of it, his own family where it’s not a couple but it’s a family.”

She adds that she’s stopped giving attention to negative things in her life, saying, “When I turned 40, I felt like I got this free software upgrade that I wasn’t expecting. It just happened. Suddenly I was like, ‘Oh, this is fantastic: I don’t care! I like myself, and I’m just going to live my life. I’m going to stop worrying and tearing myself down.'”
