‘Goop’ creator Gwyneth Paltrow covers the latest issue of WSJ Magazine – the December 2018 / January 2019 issue and in it the ‘Iron Man 2’ actress talks about a lot!
On her “conscious uncoupling” from Chris Martin, Gwyneth says: “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 marrying Brad Falchuk and becoming a step mother, Gwyneth says: “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. 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.” For more of Gwyneth’s WSJ interview click here!
