Gwyneth Paltrow feels 'very lucky' to be friends with ex

GWYNETH Paltrow feels "very lucky" to be friends with ex-husband Chris Martin.

The 42-year-old actress, who announced her split from the Coldplay frontman, 38, in March 2014, says they are still very supportive of one another because their children, Apple, 11, and Moses, eight, are their priority.

Speaking at the #BlogHer15 conference in New York City, where gave a keynote speech on Friday (17.07.15), she said: "I'm very, very lucky that I have a partner who's willing to do it with me in a really collaborative way. I'm really for Chris and he's really for me and our children are our priority. What that really means is: Even if you hate me and never want to see me again, we are going to brunch. It's definitely imperfect, [but we] are really great friends [and] he's a great dad."

The 'Mortdecai' star was very honest with her son and daughter after she and Chris parted ways and did her best to reassure them.

Recalling what she told them at the time, the Oscar winner said: "'You know Daddy and I are famous and there's going to be a lot of stuff out there. I can't control what you'll see. But you know what's real and how much we love you.' [Our children] understand the difference between the inside and the outside world."

Despite having a thick skin, Gwyneth tries to avoid reading about herself online or in magazines.

But she added: "If you read something bad about yourself and it stings you I've learned that somewhere that's a judgment I'm holding about myself so I'll try to work through that."
