Oscar winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow says her split from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin was incredibly painful, but she wanted to turn her divorce into a positive.
Paltrow opened up about her divorce in an interview to The Edit magazine, reports dailymail.co.uk.
She said: "I wanted to turn my divorce into a positive. What if I didn't blame the other person for anything, and held myself 100 per cent accountable? 'What if I checked my own s*** at the door and put my children first? And reminded myself about the things about my ex-husband that I love, and fostered the friendship?"
The actress added: "What I put myself through to get there, was the most difficult thing I've ever done in my life."
Paltrow wed Martin in 2003. The couple, who split in 2014 and divorced in 2016, share two children, Apple, 13, and Moses, 11. Paltrow and Martin made headlines with their choice of the phrase "consciously uncoupling".
Talking about coining the term, she said: "People are coming around. I know it's a dorky term, but it's very worthwhile."
