Is Chris Martin an asshole?

He seems like a nice guy in interviews, but he IS married to Gwyneth Paltrow, so.....

by Anonymousreply 6011/06/2014

He's actually very nice. TOO nice, and is very much bitch whipped. Typical "nice guy" who let's his wife wear the pants.

Hasn't he openly cheated on her with that mini-Gwenny actress? Kate Bosworth?

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.

Dunno if he's an asshole, but hugely untalented.

r7, that's your opinion. I love their music.

You have a pretty cool elevator, r10.

Coldplay: music for whiney, upper-middle-class, hetero white guys. I'd much rather spend an hour stuck in an elevator with Fishsticks than with her boring husband.

He should be shot! His voice and music is atrocious!

He always has a cunty expression on his face. Don't know if it means anything, though.

He has an ugly British mug. Horrible teeth. He can't help it.

by Anonymousreply 1610/21/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 1710/21/2011

He must be a saint to be married to that tiresome bitch.

r6 must be mistaken....don't see Big Bang Theory listed

by Anonymousreply 1910/21/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 2210/22/2011

Actually, I haven't seen him in person since 2009.

by Anonymousreply 2310/25/2011

I actually meant the Jim Parsons show ... thanks for the clarification.

by Anonymousreply 2410/25/2011

He's an elitist asswipe from a rich family. Anyone who makes their under 10 year old kids study Latin and eat that veggie crap must be demented. And as for calling one of them Apple.... sheesh, suppose the kid is lucky they didn't call it Prune or Runny Bowels.

Can somebody plesse link to that Gwyneth Paltrow nosejob thread? I can't find it, thanks.

He was on Colbert last week. I thought he was very likeable and funny.

by Anonymousreply 2710/26/2011

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 Anonymousreply 2811/12/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 2911/12/2011

Telling story of how Clocks came about and then sings some. He sounds fantastic.

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?

by Anonymousreply 3111/12/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 3211/12/2011

How mean of them, R22. And all she did was fuck her friend's husband.

by Anonymousreply 3311/12/2011

Corporate pop for hipsters who think they are living alternative lifestyles. They mean nothing, but that could mean they are really, really deep.

by Anonymousreply 3411/13/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 3511/13/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 3611/13/2011

Unexpectedly charming

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.

by Anonymousreply 3811/13/2011

Expectedly ugly.

And r4 is right on.

He was recently on Ellen with a band member. I thought he was totally adorable. You bitchy DL queens are why most people hate us. So fucking judgmental. And I suspect you bitches who love to hate are far from perfect! You are so transparent and SAD.

He's into getting pegged by Gwyneth.

by Anonymousreply 4101/06/2013

Too bad he's stuck with that nasty ice queen. I find her friendship with Beyonce to be so fake.

by Anonymousreply 4201/06/2013

I like him and his voice, and think he's adorable.

But the fact that he's married to Goopy completely mystifies me.

I find his music pretty overrated and the guy seems pretty meh to me. Goopy could do better

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.

by Anonymousreply 5208/16/2014

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 !
