Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk have consciously uncoupled from the idea of living together!
Instead of cohabitating full time, he spends four nights at the actress’ place, and then stays at his pad whenever his children — Brody and Isabella — are around.
On Wednesday, the Iron Man starlet’s intimacy coach, Michaela Boehm, appeared on Loose Women where she explained the reasoning behind the couple’s unique situation.
“When couples start living together, they ruin the excitement. That’s true for anyone, Hollywood star or regular commoner.”
Offering advice to the audience, she preached:
“Spend time apart. That could be ten minutes at the end of the work day, it could be having separate rooms, or separate houses. separate houses… do how much time you need.”
While discussing the amount of scrutiny A-listers face with their public relationships, she continued:
“Nothing you do is off limits, everything has to be dealt with in the public… A lack of the intimacy and lack of connection, not only celebs suffer from, when you look most people are always on their phones. Add to that, the distress of everything you do being watched.”
However, it appears the two might be moving in together sooner than later.
According to a Variety report published earlier this month, Paltrow’s man listed his Los Angeles home for sale for $10 million.
In a March interview with Today‘s Savannah Guthrie, the businesswoman opened up about co-parenting with ex-husband Chris Martin, with whom she shares daughter Apple, 15, and son Moses, 13.
The two split in March 2014 — after ten years of marriage — and finalized their divorce in July 2016.
“We really made the commitment to maintaining the family—even though we weren’t going to be a couple… And so we sort of thought through that: How would that work and how would that be? Both Chris and I have made a commitment to continue to love the things about each other that we’ve always loved and to really continue to develop our friendship and to find ways to continue to communicate.”
However, the 46-year-old admitted it’s been a “long process.”
“You really have to focus on forgiveness and, you know, spite that comes up—you have to let it go… It’s definitely not effortless… But now, at this point five years later, it’s pretty good. But the first couple of years, it was very effortful. And for the sake of the children, we were really committed to maintaining the family structure, even though it looks a little bit different.”
