Actress Gwyneth Paltrow Takes Another Approach To Married Life, Reveals Why She Doesn’t Live Together Full Time With Hubby, Brad Falchuk

Hollywood star actress, Gwyneth Paltrow is taking a unique approach to married life with new husband Brad Falchuk. Eight months after tying the knot with Brad, the 46-year-old star mom revealed that she and her boo don’t live together full time.

In a new interview with the U.K.’s Sunday Times, the actress opened up about her and Brad’s unique living situation. According to Paltrow, she and husband only live together four nights a week, after which he goes back to his own house.

Brad, a TV producer known for “Glee” and “American Horror Story,” has his own house near Paltrow’s, where he sleeps three nights a week. The other four nights, he stays at the Goop founder’s place. Brad sleeps at his nearby home when his children from a previous relationship, Brody and Isabella, are staying over.

“All my married friends say that the way we live sounds ideal and we shouldn’t change a thing,” Paltrow, 46, told the outlet. She added that the arrangement is “perfect” for maintaining “polarity” as instructed by her intimacy teacher, Michaela Boehm.

During the interview, Paltrow also discussed whether she thinks she’s a good stepmom to Brody and Isabella. The Avengers star, who also has two children from her previous marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin said:

“I have no idea. Sometimes that piece gets complicated when there are two teenage girls. If you’re not all drinking the same Kool-Aid, it can be tough. I do think, though, at the end of the day, everyone wants the same thing, which is to feel love and be accepted.

My stepson, for example, had a rough beginning with it all, but now he and I have our own space together. I’m not his mother, he’s not my son, but he knows he is very special to me.”

As for her own children, Paltrow sweetly gushed about what “f**king awesome people” they are. She said:

“Apple is an incredibly self-aware, strong girl; she knows what’s right for her and what’s not right. I’m sure we are going to have some pain and heartbreak, as we all do, but I want to honor who they are. I don’t want to force myself upon them.”

Paltrow and her husband, 48, married in a private, star-studded wedding ceremony in the Hamptons after dating for more than three years.

Paltrow and Brad wasted no time in embracing their blended family, with Martin joining the couple on their “very modern” family honeymoon over Christmas. The actress was also all smiles while posing with Martin and his girlfriend, Dakota Fanning, in April.

The actress split from Martin in March 2014 after 10 years of marriage and two kids – Apple, 15, and Moses, 13. They finalized their divorce in July 2016.

“Chris is family and Brad and he, they’re like, totally friends,” Paltrow told The Times, adding that she “adores” Martin’s new girlfriend, “Fifty Shades of Grey” actress Dakota Johnson.

Paltrow also defends her unorthodox living situation saying:

“I don’t care about the haters. Haters are irrelevant to me. It’s like Brené Brown says: I’m not making this work for people who aren’t in the arena. Haters don’t mean anything to me because they are not my people.”
