Gywneth Paltrow, has praised her husband, despite revealing that the couple had been through 'terrible times' during their marriage, various sources including Gigwise have reported this week. The actress is currently in the UK promoting superhero blockbuster, Iron Man 3, and has revealed personal details about her marriage to Chris Martin in a new interview with Glamour magazine.
"It’s hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We’re the same as any couple," she tells the magazine. "I asked my dad once, 'How did you and Mum stay married for 33 years?' And he said, 'Well, we never wanted to get divorced at the same time'. And I think that’s what happens."
She also describs Chris as 'mad, genius songwriter' and claims he is making a contribution to the world with his music. "I never say, 'Where are you? You should be home by now,'" she adds. "I never place demands on him because I think he’s a really talented man and he’s putting something good into the world."

Says the Daily Mail: Fans of Chris Martin have probably dreamed for the day they get to watch him peel his T-shirt off. But will their pulses still be racing when they see the unsightly cupping marks on his back?
The 36-year old singer showed the tell tale marks left by the alternative therapy - where hot cups are placed against the skin to create a vaccum and increase blood flow - as he worked out in Primrose Hill on Wednesday.
The procedure first made headlines in 2004 when his wife Gwyneth Paltrow, 40, attended the Anchorman premier with the unusual marks clearly visible above her strapless gown. Chris was working out with a trainer on the hottest day of the year so far, and like many men who experienced the unusually hot British spring day, he ended up taking his top off. Prior to this, Chris was seen using a TRX system to work his upper body, which was surprisingly solid and tanned.
But it was as he swung himself over a pair of steel double bars that the cupping marks became visible. A source told The Sun that Chris' love of keeping fit and alternative therapies are definitely thanks to his health-concious wife. 'Chris has always kept himself in shape and he’s not shy about having the odd beauty treatment either. 'That’s Gwyneth’s influence. She’s opened his eyes to pampering methods. 'He’s a yoga fanatic and has been running serious miles too.'
