My marriage can be challenging, says Gwyneth Paltrow
London: Gwyneth Paltrow has said that her marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin is not always plain sailing.
The 40-year-old actress - will be spending her ninth marriage anniversary without Martin, as she had to fly to Dubai to promote Hugo Boss - admitted that the couple’s artistic temperaments could sometimes clash.
On being asked what is the most difficult part of being married to Martin she replied, “Probably our artistic temperaments together.”
“Artists are sensitive; there are ups and downs, mood-wise,” a leading daily has quoted her as telling a magazine.
“Musicians need a certain gravitas and focus in order to write,” she said.
But the ‘Shakespeare in Love’ star added she wouldn’t change anything about her family life, saying that within her marriage both partners have the strength to be independent from each other.
According to sources, the pair had celebrated before she flew out to promote Hugo Boss in Dubai. However, she admitted that there was perhaps one thing missing from their marriage - another baby. Paltrow, who is already mother to Apple, 8, and Moses, 6, hinted that she may not be done with giving birth to a child.
“My brain says, ‘Oh, I think I’m done, the kids are big now and I don’t want to go back to changing diapers.’ But a part of me would love to have another. Of course, I’m old now!” she said.
“When Apple was born, she had the hugest blue eyes. I looked into them and she was looking at me, and I felt like, ‘You are here to teach me everything.’
“After Moses was born, I had postpartum depression. It was a difficult time and because of that, I believe I have an extra empathy for him and he for me,” she added.
