Gwyneth Paltrow: Marriage to Chris Martin Not Perfect

Gwyneth Paltrow is opening up in the September issue of Elle Magazine where she admits that her 7-year marriage to Chris Martin isn’t always so rosy:

“Sometimes it’s hard being with someone for a long time,” “We go through periods that aren’t all rosy. I always say, life is long and you never know what’s going to happen.”

“If, God forbid, we were ever not to be together, I respect him so much as the father of my children,” the Oscar winner continued. “Like, I made such a good choice. He’s such a good dad. You can never be relaxed or smug and think, ‘I’ve got this thing.’ That’s also part of it — keeping yourself on your toes. I’m not going to take this for granted.”

You know there is no denying that marriage has its moments but I’m getting the feeling that as opposed to Jennifer Lopez who did her magazine interview what seemed like hours after her split from Skeletor, it seems like the Goopmeister is doing hers before the announcement. Am I reading too much into that quote? Perhaps, but this blind item was circulating a week ago and word is it’s Gwyneth.

However she has the world of respect for him particularly as a musical artist and refers to him as:

“a musical genius,” It’s like living with Picasso, and being like, ‘Should I make a little something-something?’” “He makes music for his fans, and he doesn’t want people to conjure a lame famous couple when they’re getting into his music. I get it,”

Has she ever seen him perform? Speaking of music, we’ve seen Gwyneth do her share of music lately (Glee, Country Strong) her BFF’s Beyonce and Jay-Z are encouraging Gwyneth to cut an album of her own:

“Beyoncé and Jay—they think that I should just go do it by myself. That I should go…in a studio and see what happens. And if it’s good, do it. And if it’s not, don’t. So that’s probably what I’ll do.”

She even talks about the time she appeared on Chelsea Lately and called her grandmother a c*nt:

“Doing Chelsea Handler is like doing Howard Stern: You’ve gotta rise to the occasion. It’s good to shock people who think of me as the prim Gwyneth Paltrow.”

“If you speak to my friends who’ve known me since I was 4, they’ll say, ‘That is her.’ They always said to me, ‘You’re the dirtiest person in the world, and so funny. Show the world that side of you.’”

I felt guarded. I felt like if I really showed people more of me and I was still not accepted, then…Who cares. You just realize it doesn’t matter what people think of you.”

A lot of people were so offended by that video but seriously she was doing it to shock people and it was funny. If you can get over that word used in the same sentence as grandma hehe.

The new issue of Elle Magazine hits newsstands on August 16.
