Ever since their split in March 2014, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin became the poster parents for how a divorced couple should act for the sake of their children.
So how did the 42-year-old actress do it?

Well, it apparently wasn't as easy as it looked.
The Goop creator tells Marie Claire in their February issue:
"We've worked really f–king hard to get to [this] point… But we're very, very close, and it's so nice. I feel like it's, in a way, the relationship we were meant to have."
What a great attitude!
The Oscar winner also opens up about her divorce and how it truly wasn't a big thing:
"There was nothing dramatic or anything. I had built my life on trying to be all things to all people, and I just couldn't do it anymore, and I really had the sense that I wasn't allowed to have needs, and I had to prove my specialness or self-worth by doing all this stuff and taking care of everybody else, and I just sort of hit a wall."
We adore Gwyneth's honesty, and we think her and Chris are great role models for parents everywhere!
