Publicising relationship unnecessary: Paltrow

Thursday, November 18, 2010

LONDON - Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow admits she tries to keep her relationship with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin away from the public eye because she feels it is unnecessary to publicise something as personal as a relationship.

“When I see high-profile relationships now, I think, ‘Oh my God’, even though I’m technically in one. But we sort of don’t do anything public, we try to keep it as behind the scenes as possible. Because it just generates more interest. It just undermines the quality of your life,” Paltrow has been quoted as saying by

“It’s just unnecessary to be a public couple, and to have your couple-dom, or whatever, be its own entity. It doesn’t make sense to have that in the public world,” she added.

The couple - who have children Apple, 5, and Moses, 4, together - are said to travel to their holiday home in the Hamptons resort area of New York once a year to keep their marriage strong.

“Spending a month there every summer really keeps their marriage going. It’s their haven away from the things that get between them - their hectic work schedules and their different sets of friends,” said an insider.
