Man, it’s been almost two years since “conscious uncoupling.” Can you believe it?
And two years is a long time, at least for Gwyneth Paltrow because ex Chris Martin went from life partner to…brother? The pair share daughter Apple, 10, and son Moses, 9. She dished about the nature of their relationship to this month’s Glamour and it sounds, uh, weird. Like the rest of her life, I suppose. Here are the highlights:
ÃÂ On spending time with Chris Martin: “We spend a lot of time together. HeÃ¢â¬â¢s been away for two weeks [promoting Coldplay’s album A Head Full of Dreams]. Last night he got in at midnight and slept here so he could surprise the kids in the morning, we could all have breakfast, and he could take them to school.On living together: weÃ¢â¬â¢re not living together, but heÃ¢â¬â¢s more than welcome to be with us whenever he wants. And vice versa: I sleep in his house in Malibu a lot with the kids. WeÃ¢â¬â¢ll have a weekend all together; holidays, weÃ¢â¬â¢re together,” she adds. “WeÃ¢â¬â¢re still very much a family, even though we donÃ¢â¬â¢t have a romantic relationship. HeÃ¢â¬â¢s like my brother.”On getting married again: I don’t know. I guess so. I mean, I believe in marriage. But I’m not even divorced yet! So give me a minute. [Laughs.]On gender issues and female identity: “I think we’re in the midst of creating a new archetype of a woman, and we’re gonna get there. And I’ve never minded pushing anything along, taking some slings and arrows. Our daughters will look at us and be like, Ã¢â¬ÅOh, so you get to work and be a mommy and wear beautiful lipstick.Ã¢â¬Â I mean, when they have a hole in their uniform, I sew it. I make the food; I bathe them. And I’m a sexual being and a powerful woman and entrepreneur. I’m all of those things. We now realize that we have permission to be everything.”(Via Glamour)
