She received reactions for announcing her divorce from Chris Martin with the words “conscious uncoupling,” and Gwyneth Paltrow clarifies the whole situation in her new interview with Fast Company.
The “Sliding Doors” dame shares, “When I announced that I was separating on the website, [Editorial Director] Elise Loehnen titled the piece Conscious Uncoupling and I had no idea. When something like that happens, I think everybody is like, ‘Oh, s***.’ I just tell them that I think we are creating interesting discussions.”
Gwyn also confessed that she’s reticent to dig too deep into her past- “My future self is always afraid when I look back. I had this the other day where somebody was asking me about [the movie Emma], that I did in England when I was 22. It was really my first starring role, an adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma. And I remember at the time people saying, ‘Weren’t you intimidated to play this English heroine? You’re this American girl.’ When I think about it [now], I would be petrified.”
