GWYNETH Paltrow and Chris Martin are still “very much a family” but he is like a “brother” to her.
The ‘Iron Man 3’ actress insists she and her ex-husband with whom she has daughter Apple, 11, and son Moses, nine are still “very much a family” and they frequently stay at one another’s houses.
She said: “We spend a lot of time together. He’s been away for two weeks promoting his album. Last night he got in at midnight and slept here so he could surprise the kids in the morning, we could all have breakfast, and he could take them to school.
“So, we’re not living together but he’s more than welcome to be with us whenever he wants and vice versa. I sleep in his house in Malibu a lot with the kids. We’re still very much a family, even though we don’t have a romantic relationship. He’s like my brother.”
The 43 year old actress is happy in her relationship with TV producer Brad Falchuk but is not in a rush to marry again.
“I believe in marriage but I’m not even divorced yet! So give me a minute,” she told America’s Glamour magazine.
Gwyneth whose parents are late actor Bruce Paltrow and actress Blythe Danner is very proud of her children but wishes they weren’t “drawn to perform”.
“Right now they’re in a really good space. They’re smart, they’re funny, they have pretty good heads on their shoulders. We’ll see what difficulties come with adolescence and what careers they want,” she said.
“Unfortunately, I think they’re both gonna be drawn to perform. They’re naturals they sing, act, play guitar, do stand-up it’s brimming out of them. So I feel like my mother. Whenever I said I wanted to be an actress, she said, ‘Oh no, don’t. You’re too smart to be an actress. Do something else!” she added.
