Gwyneth Paltrow thankful for dating rumours

Monday April 15, 2013

Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed rumours she was dating Coldplay frontman Chris Martin helped them get together.

The Iron Man 3 star claimed in an interview with The Sun that she hadn't even met Chris in 2002, when reports they were an item emerged in the press. So when she went to a Coldplay concert she was invited backstage to meet him - and now they have been married for nine years.

Gwyneth explained: "He [Chris] was in Los Angeles doing a concert and an actress that he had a crush on was supposed to come to the concert. When she didn't show up, he was so annoyed that he said, 'Oh, this is for my girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow.'

"Then people were saying, 'What's going on?' I was like, 'I've never met this guy, I've no idea!' And because people were writing about it, we ended up meeting at a concert and there you go. So, thank you!

The couple married in December 2003 and now have two children - eight-year-old daughter Apple and seven-year-old son Moses.
