The actress and entrepreneur insists she and the Yellow singer couldn’t be better friends and co-parents to their kids Apple and Moses, insisting getting divorced was the best thing they could have done.
“It’s so interesting because in a way my divorce and my relationship with Chris now is better than our marriage was,” Paltrow said during an appearance on pal Drew Barrymore’s new talk show.
And she admits she grew as a person during her time with Chris.
“You have to know that every relationship is 50/50,” she added. “No matter what you think, how you think you were wronged, or how bad you perceive the other person’s actions, or whatever the case may be.
“If you are brave enough to take responsibility for your half and really look at your own garbage and your own trauma and how it’s presenting in the world and in your relationship then there really is somewhere to go and something to learn and something to heal. You are also holding the other person in this sphere of humanity. We are all part good and part bad; it’s not binary, we are all grey area.”
Paltrow has moved on from her marriage to Martin and wed TV producer Brad Falchuk in 2018, while the singer is dating actress Dakota Johnson.
