Gwyneth Paltrow Felt "Angry," "Jealous," During Her Conscious Uncoupling
Gwyneth Paltrow admits she’s gotten jealous and angry post-divorce, but has to put her bad feelings aside in order to co-parent with Chris Martin.
The duo consciously uncoupled two years ago, and have remained amicable and have even vacationed as a family.
“It’s also almost about having to press the override button whenever you feel angry or jealous or whatever, broken-hearted,” she tells Red magazine. “I’m going back to the baseline of I love this person, he is the father of my children, he’s a wonderful man. I’m just going to put my shit aside for right now. It really has not been easy for me at times, I'm sure it's not been easy for him.”
The actress says she concentrates on putting their two kids, Apple and Moses, first, and doesn’t talk bad about her ex in front of them.
“But when we said we’re going to put the children first, we meant [it]. If you want to put your children first, then why are you slagging your husband off in front of them?So we really tried [and] that meant I’m gonna check my s**t at the door, and I’m going to focus on all the reasons that I love you, that you’re like my brother and my family forever,” she says.
The entire family just enjoyed a vacation to South America, where Coldplay was on tour, and posted pictures looking happy.
Gwyneth also admits she was sad after the split, and that she envisioned the two would be married forever.
“I have to say it wasn’t the outcome we were hoping for, but it was our outcome and we’ve really done the best that we can,” she says.
One good thing is that she no longer has to deal with the cold, rainy London winters, she says, and splits her time between Malibu and The Hamptons in New York.
Gwyneth is now dating “Glee” producer Brad Falchuk and Chris is dating British actress Annabelle Wallis.
