Recently, Gwyneth Paltrow shared a lot from her personal life in an interview. To make it even more unique, she did the interview makeup-free! From her close relationship with her ex-husband to her child-raising techniques, she covered it all!
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin
If you didn't know, Oscar-winning actress and Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow doesn't precisely love makeup. From her rants against cosmetics to her makeup-free parties, Paltrow has never hidden the fact that she had no problem going makeup-free. To prove it, she even gave an interview - sans cosmetics - on The Today Show last week. Interestingly, Paltrow and host Jill Martin spent almost no time discussing makeup. Almost immediately, the 48-year-old actress and CEO explained that she shares a great relationship with her ex-husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. "[Martin] was over here yesterday. And (Apple) came through and she's like, you know, she's taller than me now. We just like looked at each other. We were like, 'How did this go by so quickly?'"
While Paltrow and Martin went through a divorce in 2016, and she married TV producer Brad Falchuk in 2018, they remain close friends. "[Martin's] like my brother. You know, he's my family," Paltrow explained. "I love him. And I'm so grateful to him for giving me these kids. It worked out well ... You know, it really did, I have to say." To prove that point, Paltrow even posted a picture of Martin and their children, Apple and Moses, on Instagram to congratulate Martin on Father's Day. "Happy Father's Day to all of the dads out there. Sending you all love," the actress captioned the snap.
But the interview did not end there!
Raising Apple and Moses
Later, Paltrow confessed that her kids find both her and Martin rather embarrassing, notably Apple, her daughter! "My daughter makes fun of us all the time and she always has. It's pretty funny," she explained. Moses, her son, on the other hand, thinks they are cool from time to time. "He just turned 15 so maybe he'll start to get a different opinion soon," Paltrow stated. You might not expect it, but Paltrow says her children don't think of her as an actress - because they have never seen her movies! "I mean, I think my son has seen the Iron Man things, but I don't think my daughter has ever seen me in a movie," she said, adding that Apple, "thinks it's weird if I'm onscreen. She says she likes me here."
It makes sense, as the Goop creator herself does not enjoy watching her movies. "I also really hate, hate, hate seeing myself in a movie ever and it's kind of like the only scene that I can watch of myself of my whole career," Paltrow explained. Believe it not, out of her 60 films, she only enjoys one: The Royal Tenenbaums. "I have a memory of my dad visiting. He came the day that we did a scene where I'm getting off the bus and Richie's picking me up, and my dad was there. It was a very special day," she said.
