Gwyneth Paltrow has admitted that her relationship with her ex-husband Chris Martin is now “better” than their marriage was.
The 47-year-old opened up about her divorce from the Coldplay frontman, who split back in 2014 after ten years of marriage.
Speaking on The Drew Barrymore Show, the actress spoke about how the former couple co-parent successfully: “I mean it’s so interesting because in a way my divorce and my relationship with Chris now is better than our marriage was.”
“So I do think that it can be done. I was really lucky because I had a doctor who kind of gave us a rubric for how to do it and luckily he’s writing a book and I think it’s coming out next year, thank goodness, because it really kind of lays out the tenants of how you do it and it’s a little bit unsurprising right?
“You have to have radical accountability,” she added, “You have to know that every relationship is 50/50.
“No matter what you think, how you think you were wronged, or how bad you perceive the other persons actions, or whatever the case may be.”
“If you are brave enough to take responsibility for your half and really look at your own garbage and your own trauma and how it’s presenting in the world and in your relationship then there really is somewhere to go and something to learn and something to heal,” Gwyneth continued.
“You are also holding the other person in this sphere of humanity. We are all part good and part bad, it’s not binary, we are all grey area.”
Opening up about co-parenting, she said: “It’s like you’re ending a marriage but you’re still in a family. That’s how it will be forever. Some days it’s not as good as it looks.”
“We also have good days and bad days but I think it’s driving towards the same purpose of unity and love and what’s best for them.
“We have this idea that just because we break up we can’t love the things about the person anymore that we loved and that’s not true.”
Chris and Gwyneth co-parent their two children, their 16-year-old daughter Apple, and their son Moses, 14.
Gwyneth married producer Brad Falchuk in 2018, while Chris is dating actress Dakota Johnson.
