We’re not huge fans of Gwyneth “The Goop” Paltrow here. We never were, but her whole Goop website nonsense (and ridiculous defense of it) didn’t exactly help. She’s so holier-than-thou, even though she’s bland as oatmeal. But Gwyneth has finally admitted that her life isn’t 100% perfect like she’s always trying to play it off to be. She was vague about it, but you can read all sorts of things into it if you try hard enough. And believe me, we’re trying.
Gwyneth Paltrow is finally opening up about her marriage to Coldplay singer Chris Martin. “It’s hard!” she said at the Bent on Learning gala she hosted in NYC on Feb. 25. “Nothing is as good as it looks. Life is complicated, and there are always issues to overcome. Yesterday, he went to Australia, and I came here; you have to accept that.”
The couple, who married in 2003 and have two children, Apple, 4, and Moses, 2, have been rumored to be on the brink of splitting for years. But Gwyneth, 36, maintains that she and Chris, 32, are “very good friends,” and that’s the glue that holds them together. “We’re brutally honest with each other,” she says. “Even if, God forbid, we weren’t together in 10 years or whatever, I think we’re like a family.” But there may be a big fight brewing because Chris is “going to kill me for talking about this,” says Gwyn.

Wait, the possibility even exists that Gwyneth and Chris could be anything less than the marital ideal in ten years? That just blew my mind. I find them each insufferable in their own way, but I think what I most loathe is their whole, “We refuse to be photographed together” thing. You’re a damn married couple, it’s not like you’re hiding your relationship, right? So what’s the harm in walking a red carpet together once in a while? Their lives really must be complicated if the idea of being arm-in-arm for half an hour causes such anxiety.
Normally I’d say something about how I’m glad to hear their lives aren’t so perfect. But I don’t think anyone ever bought that charade from Gwyneth in the first place. Until this quote she’d gone so ridiculously out of her way to appear perfect and lecture others on how to live. It was too much. You knew she was overcompensating for some hole or defect in her life. Now we just have to get more specifics on exactly what that is.
