The gorgeous gal had no idea the media would have a frenzy when they announced their big breakup, saying:
“It was a difficult time in our lives. We didn’t know that the ‘conscious uncoupling’ phrase was going to inspire so much conversation.”
But eventually, that conversation changed course, and people began applauding the actress instead of picking apart her failed marriage. She explained:
“At the time people said, these people are crazy and it’s true, but over time now I hear people saying thank you for showing there is another way.”
Plus, the lovely lady stressed she and the musician don’t need to be married in order to be a family, adding:
“You can remain a family even though you are not a couple and make it a less traumatic experience for the children. It wasn’t my phrase, but I’m very proud of it.”
In fact, the 43-year-old admitted she’ll even make compromises with her ex, even though things are strictly platonic now:
“As anybody who has been divorced knows, you have to put a lot aside to maintain the family and the practicalities of what that might mean and sometimes that’s quiet tough on a personal level. It’s a commitment I make every day to my children and their father even though we’re not in a romantic relationship.”
During the interview — which was filmed in front of a packed audience — Miz Paltrow dished about more than just the father of her children!
The El Lay native also addressed critics who say she’s not relatable because of her wealth:
“The moment I left college, my father said you are completely on your own. I never had a trust fund. The idea that I’m spoiled or I didn’t work for what I have, isn’t accurate.”
And in light of this election’s presumptive nominees, Gwyn also gave her thoughts on having a female president:
“It’s about time. Other countries employed female leaders. I think we still have a long way to go. There’s no reason why a woman wouldn’t be as good, or better than a man would be.”
We totally agree! What do U think, Perezcious readers?!
