Gwyneth Paltrow Opens Up About 'Conscious Uncoupling' With Chris Martin & Her New Marriage to Brad Falchuk!

Gwyneth Paltrow is on the cover of WSJ. Magazine’s December / January 2019 Issue, out on December 15.

Here’s what the 46-year-old actress and businesswoman had to say…

On negativity surrounding her controversial “conscious uncoupling” with Chris Martin: “It’s like the week that I was People’s most beautiful woman and Star’s most hated celebrity. It’s a lesson that I learned when we did the ‘conscious uncoupling’ thing….I was so raw. It was so hard to be getting a divorce and letting go of this dream, and the public stuff was super painful. I wanted to see if we could check our pain and egos at the door and remember what we love about each other and be a family for these kids. What I didn’t understand at the time was, I think there’s a message in that, which is, ‘If you don’t do it this way, you’re hurting your kids.’ I think people take that as: ‘She thinks she is better than me,’”

On post-marriage “coupling” with Brad Falchuk and step motherhood: “We are still doing it in our own way. With teenage kids, you’ve got to tread lightly. It’s pretty intense, the teenage thing. I’ve never been a stepmother before. I don’t know how to do it.”

On her new marriage: “It’s fantastic. I feel like we are probably better equipped to choose our life partner when we are halfway through life. But generally, we have to pick our spouses a lot earlier because of the whole procreation piece….for me it has been more of a process, and so I feel really lucky to have met this person who is an incredible, true partner.”

On her early fame:Cameron Diaz and I talk about this all the time. We’re like, ‘Thank God in the early ’90s there were [so few] paparazzi. Thank God.’ We cry in gratitude that no one was following us around and seeing what we were doing,” she says. “I remember when Brad Pitt and I broke up, it was on the cover of the New York Post and there was no one outside my house. That would never happen today.”
