While Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin figure out this whole “consciously uncoupling” thing, Gwyn’s BFF is shedding some light on their split.
The blonde beauty gave her thoughts on the breakup, calling the pair “brave” for making the right decision.
“For both Chris and Gwyneth, I mean they worked really hard,” she said on March 27 – two days after Gwyn and Chris called it quits. “People want them to blow up and it to be ugly, but they’re kind, generous, loving people who really care about one another. Just because they don’t want to be a couple together, doesn’t mean that they have to hate one another. They are really good friends.”
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin Announce Plans to Separate After 10 Years Together
She continued, “They've made a conscious effort to separate the part of their lives they don't want to live together anymore, and maintain a really beautiful, strong bond as parents and as friends...I think people should really honor that and they should admire it and they should respect it. They've done something really extraordinary, and they've been very brave at presenting that to the public.
Cam added of her bestie, “She’s doing great. They’re doing great.”
The starlet isn’t the only person claiming the duo are doing just fine. The Coldplay frontman’s younger brother Alex recently shared his feelings about the separation.
“[Chris is] bearing up OK,” Alex told British newspaper The Mirror. “I love them both dearly, we all get on and there is no animosity. Me and my brother are very close.”
That statement comes after photos resurfaced of the blonde actress sharing a smooch with ex-boyfriend Donovan Leitch at a LA Dodgers baseball game last September.
Fans have been speculating he’s the reason behind the split.
Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Split: 8 Quotes Prove Something Was Amiss
Gwyn, 41, and Chris, 37, who got married in 2003, announced their decision to separate after 10 years of marriage Tuesday on the actress’ Goop website, which crashed because of the post:
"We have been working hard for well over a year...to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate."
Their main focus now is to continue co-parenting their two children, daughter Apple, 9, and son Moses, 7.
"We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."
