Gwyneth Paltrow has spoken candidly about "consciously uncoupling" with Chris Martin. The 44-year-old made headlines with the odd phrase when she announced her divorce, she says it was a way of turning it into a positive.
“People are coming around. I know it’s a dorky term, but it’s very worthwhile,” she tells The EDIT. “I’m always the person who gets s— at first, but then later people say, ‘Hey, maybe that’s a good idea.’ I don’t mind.”
In the new interview, the Shakespeare In Love star says, “What if I didn’t blame the other person for anything, and held myself 100% accountable? What if I checked my own s— at the door and put my children first? And reminded myself about the things about my ex-husband that I love, and fostered the friendship?”
Ultimately she sees the divorce, like other major turning points in her life, as an opportunity for growth. “I’ve had an extraordinary life, where things have happened in a huge way—huge success, huge joy, huge pain, huge loss,” she says. “And the reason I feel happy today is because I’ve milked the f—– out of every opportunity. I haven’t made one mistake that I haven’t used as a stepping stone to get somewhere else. I’m ruthless when it comes to using the hard things.”
The couple co-parent their two children, Apple, 13, and Moses, 11, in fact they are so friendly Paltrow shared this picture of the Coldplay singer just three days ago. "Sometimes Mickey needs a drink #dancedad #showstoppers" she said.
