Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow covers the February issue of InStyle and opens up about peacefully co-parenting her two children – daughter Apple, 12, and son Moses, 10 – with ex-husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
On co-parenting with Martin: “He’s at my house every single day. We have our own lives but we still have our family life. To this day, Chris would take a bullet for me, even though I’m not his wife. I honestly think Chris and I have contributed something positive to the culture of divorce.”
On why she wanted to release her new clean beauty book: “I mean, it’s shocking to me that the government doesn’t regulate this stuff… How many of my friends have had fertility issues? How many of my daughter’s friends have had precocious puberty? Well, maybe that’s because we are putting endocrine-disrupting hormones in everything.”
On being a pioneer in esotheric health treatments: “I’ve learned how the cycle works… It used to be that I would talk about something or write about it, and people would be like, ‘What the f— is she talking about? She’s a witch!’ And then later on it would sort of catch on. So now I just recognize it: OK, I’m going to talk about this, and people will think it’s weird, and that’s how it goes.”
On aging: “When I turned 40, I felt like I got this free software upgrade that I wasn’t expecting. It just happened. Suddenly I was like, ‘Oh, this is fantastic: I don’t care! I like myself, and I’m just going to live my life. I’m going to stop worrying and tearing myself down.'”
