Los Angeles: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has opened up about her split from Chris Martin, saying that she had “a year of quiet separation” from the Coldplay frontman when she was filming ‘Mortdecai’ in 2012.
The 42-year-old told the Australian magazine Marie Claire in its March issue that she asked her ‘Mortdecai’ co-star Johnny Depp for break-up advice, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“Nobody knew what Chris and I had been going through, so I didn't say 'Hey, this is what's happening.' But I did ask him mostly children-centric questions, like 'How is it on them? How did you do it?'" Paltrow said.
At that time, Depp just split from Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has 15-year-old daughter Lily-Rose and 12-year-old son Jack. They had ended their relationship in June 2012 after 14 years together.
Paltrow announced her separation from Martin in March 2014. At that time, the couple posted an announcement on the former's lifestyle blog Goop under the title ‘Conscious Uncoupling’.
Paltrow and Martin, who have two children together, Apple and Moses, have remained amicable exes since splitting in March last year. In August, she started dating ‘Glee’ co-creator Brad Falchuk while Martin began dating Jennifer Lawrence in September 2014.
