Oscar winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed that she married Coldplay frontman Chris Martin because he reminded her of her late father Bruce.
The actress realized that she was having difficulty in choosing a partner as she compared all men to her father, until close pal Madonna reminded her of a chat they once had about love and loss. "She (Madonna) said to me that I once told her that I wasn't ready to pick the right person because I wasn't ready to replace my father as the main man in my life," she was quoted by Contactmusic, as saying.
"It's true. I feel like I was never really with anybody who was a real contender. He's got the same blue eyes and curly hair and the long, long muscles" she added.
But Paltrow knew she'd found her future husband when she met Martin, because he was so similar to her late father.
In a related story, the Daily Mail reports that Macrobiotic diets, yoga and alternative therapies offer the path to beauty, according to Gwyneth Paltrow. But the 33-year-old actress is ready to make a big departure from her strictly holistic lifestyle - for plastic surgery on her breasts.
Miss Paltrow, who has a 19-month-old daughter and is pregnant again, blames breastfeeding for changing her shape for the worse. She now regards having surgery as a necessity rather than indulgence. "I think women who have breastfed understand what I'm saying - that if you get a boob job it's more reconstructive surgery, actually, than cosmetic surgery,' she told the U.S.magazine Allure.
"Everybody should do what makes them feel good and happy as long as they are not starving themselves to death. But if you can eat in a healthy way and keep exercising and get a little something done here and there, why not? I'm sure when the time comes, I'll be in there doing something."
Miss Paltrow, who is four months pregnant, told the magazine she is still devastated by the death of her father from throat cancer three years ago. She said her husband, Coldplay singer Chris Martin, reminded her of him. She explained: "He's got the same blue eyes and curly hair."
