Gwyneth Paltrow says she and Chris Martin 'are better as friends'

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin were married for ten years.

Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow has opened up about her relationship with former husband, Chris Martin. The Iron Man actress and Martin, who were married for over ten years, have maintained a close relationship for their two children, Apple and Moses.

During an interview with Marie Claire Australia, the 43-year-old actress talked about their bond. She said: "I think we are better as friends than we were [married]. We are very close and supportive of one another."

"It hasn't always been easy for us because you have good days and bad days as you do in life with anything, but I feel lucky because Chris has been willing to push himself for the sake of the kids and help me co-create this new family," she added. "It's like we are still a family, but not a couple."

Following the split, Paltrow started dating TV producer Brad Falchuk and the 37-year-old Coldplay frontman was linked to Jennifer Lawrence and Peaky Blinders actress Annabelle Wallis. Talking about her new relationship, Paltrow said: "I don't want to say too much, but I will say you just never know what is going to happen, what people you are going to meet, what amazing lessons you are going to learn."

"I think marriage is a really beautiful and noble institution, but it is not like I am holding a goal of getting remarried," she added.
