Paltrow admits marriage is hard

Gwyneth Paltrow says her marriage has its ups and downs

Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed that her marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin is not easy.

The Oscar-winning actress, 38, said the couple, who wed seven years ago, had been through rough patches.

She told Good Housekeeping: "Marriage is hard. Chris and I have had our ups and downs, big-time. Marriage is way more complicated than just, who gets to control the remote? But hopefully we keep heading in the same direction and getting through the obstacles."

The Country Strong star also revealed that she had taken her six-year-old daughter, Apple, out of school for the day so they could spend some time together after she returned from a business trip in Hong Kong.

"I'll probably get kicked out of our school for admitting this," Gwyneth, who is also mother to four-year-old Moses, admitted to the US edition of the mag, "but I let Apple stay home yesterday. I just needed to be with her. We went out to lunch, we went to the beauty salon, we were together."

Gwyneth said that she and singer Chris still try to keep their family life private.

"If I'm looking grumpy in public or if Chris and I leave a restaurant separately, it's only because we don't want to encourage photographers," she said.

Libra:

Don't let a manipulator take advantage of you. Someone with a sob story will ask for money or favours. Be prepared to turn them away. Although you want to be gracious, it simply isn't wise to give assistance to people with bad motives. Other people have warned you about this trickster. Take their advice. There's often a good reason why a person has a bad reputation. If anyone dares accuse you of being selfish, stay strong. You have a right to use your hard earned money for your own benefit.More
