Chris Martin, Gwyneth Paltrow Have Been Through ‘Terrible Times’

Chris Martin Marriage

Gwyneth Paltrow and husband Chris Martin have been through “terrible times” in their marriage.

The actress recently opened up about her relationship to the Coldplay singer while promoting Shane Black’s Iron Man 3. Paltrow admitted that she and her famous spouse have had several rocky moments at various points in their relationship.

“It’s hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We’re the same as any couple,” Paltrow said of her marriage to Chris Martin.

When things got rough at one point during their relationship, the actress said she turned to her famous parents for help. Although her father didn’t give her any words of wisdom about how to keep the waters calm, he did explain how he managed to keep his marriage together all those years.

“I asked my dad once, ‘How did you and Mom stay married for 33 years?’ And he said, ‘Well, we never wanted to get divorced at the same time’. And I think that’s what happens,” she explained to Glamour UK.

While Martin and Paltrow may have had their troubles in the past, the Iron Man 3 star admitted that things aren’t always bad in their world. Despite the issues they’d encountered in the past, she explained that their relationship isn’t always in turmoil.

The actress continued:

“We laugh, we’re good friends, we like to do the same stuff. I’m a very grounded, homey person and Chris is a very mad scientist, genius songwriter. So I never say, ‘Where are you? You should be home by now.’ I never place demands on him because I think he’s a really talented man and he’s putting something good into the world.”
