Gwyneth Paltrow enlisted the help of her husband Chris Martin when she had to learn to play guitar in her new movie, Contact Music write today. The actress plays an alcoholic country singer in her forthcoming movie 'Love Don't Let Me Down' and admits she was "embarrassed" when she asked Coldplay frontman Chris Martin - with who she has a five-year-old daughter Apple and four-year-old son Moses - to help her master the instrument.
She said: "He was so helpful, so sweet and encouraging. I mean, it's embarrassing to be playing in front of your husband, especially when he's in one of the world's most successful bands. He is so great because he's so supportive of me as an artist. I really lucked out with him. He's deeply lovely and special."
The 37-year-old star gave up exercising and relaxed her strict diet regime when making the movie in Nashville, and admits her figure has suffered as a result of the calorific treats she ate. She added to America's Harper's Bazaar magazine: "I was so bad with the food and alcohol in Nashville. "If you saw me naked now compared to what I looked like when I did 'Iron Man 2', when I was exercising every day... I'll get it back together, but I have never eaten so much fried food and white flour in my life, ever."
And speaking of the family, Gwyneth Paltrow had "no maternal feelings" for her son Moses when he was born, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. The actress admits she felt like a "robot" in the weeks after giving birth to her youngest child - who turned four yesterday - but refused to admit there was a problem until her husband, Coldplay singer Chris Martin, asked her about it.
She said: "At my lowest, I was a robot. I just didn't feel anything. I had no maternal feelings for him - it was awful. I had no thoughts of harming him, thank God, but I couldn't connect, and still, when I look pictures of him at three months old, I don't remember that time. My problem was that I never acknowledged anything was wrong. I just carried on as normal, and I just felt crazy. It was Chris, actually, who said out loud that something was wrong. And that was such a relief when he did because it was confirmation that it wasn't just me."
