I always had the impression that Chris is just a precocious, high-wired ADD-ish kid that never grew up. A Peter Pan-type thing. He was also spoiled and pampered by his parents. No way is he at the asshole level of the Gallagher brothers. I think he's a pretty decent guy at heart. And who can judge one's attraction to another person? He felt he hit the jackpot with Paltrow, but the hate for this woman is so intense on this board that no one can see that.
As for Paltrow, I think Chris is more of a comfort to her than anything. This is a wman who was deeply in love with her father and very close with her brother. Marriage is an extension of that family romance. Almost eeire how her brother Jake resembles Chris:

Wow, r4, I'd never seen her brother before. If somebody had shown me that picture and said, "Identify these two people", I would have said without hesitation, "Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin".

Jake Paltrow is a TV director - he directs Big Bang Theory.

What is it with this hetero or homo music thing? I'm a gay male in my 30s who loves Coldplay. To generalize music taste in terms of one's sexual orientation is juvenile. Fuck, grow the hell up.

R19: you are mistaken. It's not The Big Bang Theory with Jim Parsons, R6 means a NYPD Blue episode called Big Bang Theory and it is listed in the link you provided when you click on "see all 9 episodes" under NYPD Blue.
R6 was right.

Yes. And then loudly swore to sue the tabloid that broke the story...but never did.
Bosworth had been part of Fishtick's posse up until that time. Afterwards, they completely froze her out.

Howard Stern interviewed him for 1 1/2 hours this week. I never liked him although I like their music. I have to say he came across as a VERY nice man. I really have changed my opinion of him after this interview on Howard TV. His voice also sounded great when he sang a few songs.
|by Anonymous||reply 28||11/12/2011|
Here's him explaining how he came up with "yello". He claims it started out as a Neil Young impression, and he soon realized the song had something. He sings part of it too.

Jeez, why are you bitches so hung up on Paltrow? It's not like she's dictating the Zeitgeist? Let her prattle on on where to get the best $80 bottle of virgin oil and the greatest pair of $500 cashmere socks. Who gives a shit?

I heard that interview r28. I had the exact same reaction. Howard can expose the assholes real fast and Chris was very sweet and available to every question. And, yes, he did come off quite well live, singing and playing the piano.

Why hasn't he divorced her yet? Or found another method to free himself? There are, after all, Hollywood traditions galore for this sort of thing, and given her idiocy he'd have enough alibis to fill the USC stadium.

Just watched them on SNL last night. He is the most ridiculous dancer I've ever seen. As a previous poster said, "ADD" indeed. Very cute though, because after dancing like a maniac through the end of the song, he gets this big grin like a goofy kid.

Coldplay is a good band. The sad thing is that they want to be Radiohead and U2, which they will never be, but, frankly, they write more accessible music than either.

Chris Martin and Gwynnie used to workout at my gym about 10 years ago (Greenwich Ave. Equinox in the West Village). I ran into both of them on multiple occasions. However, the one specific memory that I have of Chris is when he came into the gym one day looking like he crawled out of bed and hadn't showered in 4 days. Now this is the weird part, on the mat where people stretch out, he got changed into his gym clothes from his street clothes. Everyone acted like it was perfectly normal, but it was totally creepy, especially when there is a perfectly good locker room. I remember looking at him with his ratty shorts, torn t-shirt combined with black socks and Converse sneakers. I also remember very pale skin, and nasty looking facial hair. He was relatively loud and enjoyed calling attention to himself. He was very British. Again....uggghh. After his workout, he used the same mat to change back into his street clothes; no shower of course. So, every time I think of him, I think, "dirty".

Apparently, he is dating JLaw now. And for the poster that said Gwennie is "sweet", uh, no. She was filming a scene in a theater with ScarJo. Friend of mine was an extra. She screamed and cursed at the hair stylist, who unfortunately was a last minute fill-in for her personal stylist. Kept raging about how her hair didn't look like the picture she showed the stylist, even though her hair looked exactly like the picture. "Fuck this, fuck that, fuck, fuck, fuck". Yes, she is a sweetie. ScarJo, btw, was just the opposite. Professional and nice to the crew.

Chris is incredibly nice. Worked with him a couple years ago. Whenever Gwyneth showed up, she was bossy and loud. You could tell he's the type to just keep his mouth shut and let her wear the pants, just so there wouldn't be a big argument. Glad he finally got sick of it and hopefully he will find someone cool and easygoing like he is.

Cringing that I have to admit to my Hollywood nepotism with this post, but my dad works at UTA and Gwyneth is one of their "bigger" clients. Not my dad's personal clients, but close enough to where I have had two Gwyneth and one Chris interaction(s)
I worked under a production designer on one of her more recent films. At that time, she seemed unpleasant. There were no episodes of tantrum (except for whining about being third on the call sheet lol) but she had that uppity rich girl "don't talk to me" thing. She did not remember me from a year earlier, when I was seated at the same table as her and Chris at a bullshit charity dinner with my dad, her agent, and another client + client his gf? wife? femme du jour? Who knows. Anyway Gwyneth seemed uncomfortable and distant. (Also the times I've mentioned this people jokingly ask if she ate anything- I don't remember how much she had !) Chris was really sweet and talkative with my dad, me, and the other client though- We all bonded over Peep Show !
