Gwyneth Paltrow: Chris Martin Dating Rumors Got Us Together!

Gwyneth Paltrow: Chris Martin Dating Rumors Got Us Together!

Gwyneth Paltrow heads back to her hotel after having dinner on Sunday (April 14) in Paris, France.

While chatting with reporters last week on her Iron Man 3 press tour, the 40-year-old actress revealed that the rumors she was dating now-husband Chris Martin are what actually got the pair to meet in the first place!

“It’s funny because people had started writing that we were going out and we had never even met,” Gwyneth said (via The Sun). “And then he was in Los Angeles doing a concert and an actress that he had a crush on was supposed to come to the concert. When she didn’t show up, he was so annoyed that he said, ‘Oh, this is for my girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow.”’

“Then people were saying, ‘What’s going on?’ I was like, ‘I’ve never met this guy, I’ve no idea!’” Gwyneth added. “And because of that, because people were writing about it, we ended up meeting at a concert and there you go. So, thank you!”

“Because they had written so much in the Press, his assistant came to my seat at the concert,” she concluded. “They said, ‘This is so crazy, but will you come back and say hello afterwards?’ And that was it.”

FYI: Gwyneth is wearing a Bibhu Mohapatra dress.

    …and he’s regretted that ever since. Or at least, cheats on her like he does.

    Im not a fan of Gwenyth but she seems like she can be really fun when shes not being snobby about her food and fitness.

    Everybody knows they HAD to get married because she got pregnant only weeks after starting to date. She’s always thought she was too good for him. She hasn’t left him because she doesn’t want to admit that she failed and that she is not as “perfect” as she wants people to believe she is.
    By the way, I can see the edge of her breast implants, so the rumor that she got very small breast implants is true.

    I also think it’s Rachel Weisz. I, too, remember reading an interview in which he said he had a crush on her (this was before he met Gwyneth).

    I can’t blame him though. Rachel is my girl crush!

    But I can’t wrap my head around the fact on how he went from having a crush on someone like Rachel Weisz, to marrying someone like… Gwyneth Paltrow….

    I remember reading how he couldn’t get many girls when he was younger (he lost his virginity around his early twenties, which I respect very much). So maybe he just couldn’t believe it that Gwyneth Paltrow (who just got an Oscar a few years prior, and who, and I regrettably admit this, was quite pretty when she was younger) was interested in him?

    I’m sure if he had to choose though, he’d pick Rachel. I mean, who wouldn’t (over Gwyneth, that is)?

    @Cat: I think that’s what Tonya meant that they got married after she got pregnant. =0)

    She’s the worst ever. He used to be the best until recently when he has started letting her have all the power – can’t respect him anymore. She had a breast job and other things done, marriage has been over for years. Know he has had a crush on the Blue Crush Kate Bosworth but think that was after his marriage. He also dated Natalie Umbrilia who is a classy kind beauty and acted before singing, wrote green eyes about her, and admired Rachel too. He should leave her already. All the photos of him and the kids look happy and real – when she is there they are all miserable. Oh and she really isn’t that much to look at considerin all the effort time and money put into it. Chris should find another crush one that was sweet and would respect him and his wishes and do something charity work. Instead, appears she has changed him into a whipped little dog.
