Blythe Danner, who stars in The Last Kiss, says she catches Coldplay in concert whenever she can. Really.
After all, her daughter Gwyneth Paltrow is married to Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin. “I go to every (Coldplay concert) that comes along, if we’re in the same place, wherever, New York, L.A., I’ve been all of those. When I’m in town I go.
“I adore him,” Danner said of Martin. “And I think it’s great, great stuff. It’s deep. He’s extraordinarly talented and funny and he writes great poems.”
Just don’t expect to see Danner in the front row. "I’m usually in back with my daughter, screaming just as loud as everybody else,” she says.
Otherwise, Danner — who is an incredibly young looking 63- year-old — says her fountain of youth comes from being a grandmother. Paltrow and Martin had son Moses this year after having daughter Apple in 2004. "Being a grandmother has probably done the most for my heart and soul and happiness,” said Danner.
“I used to glaze over when my friends would go on about it. I’d say, ‘Oh, please don’t tell me how incredible it is.’ But then here I am. It’s really profound. It’s just very, very deep. It’s very primal.”
Danner, who has has starred in two Meet The Parents films opposite Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller and Teri Polo, says another one is coming. “I heard there was, I said to Bob, ‘Next we’ll be on canes, then walkers, then wheelchairs, but keep them coming.’
“Oh, it’s fun. I just go and laugh. Sit in the corner and basically laugh at everybody.”
