Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow seem to be on better terms then ever now that they have decided to ‘consciously uncouple.’ The two are still going on dates together for goodness’ sake! Paltrow and her mother, actress Blythe Danner, hosted a screening last night in East Hampton, for her friend Simon Pegg. Pegg is also Apple’s godfather, Paltrow and Martin’s daughter. The screening was of Pegg’s new film, Hector and the Search for Happiness.
Sources at the screening remarked that Paltrow and Martin “seemed so comfortable with each other, it was like they were still married.” The two shared a table with Blythe Danner and chatted with friends through the evening. While they did appear to arrive separately, they left together.
On a radio show last week, Martin spoke of his ex-:
‘You know, there’s a lot of love.’ ‘So there’s nothing — there’s no scandal I’m afraid. I wish I could give you scandal.’ ‘The truth is – well, I don’t really love talking about this stuff.’ ‘But the thing we told everyone at the beginning of the year is true. We are very close, we are not together. But, we’re…you know…that’s the truth… and uh, that’s it.’
So who knows. Maybe the uncoupling was a wake-up call? Maybe they truly are just incredibly mature and friendly exes? Any way you have it – I guess good for them. They both seem very happy and comfortable with whatever they’ve got going on.
