• Gwyneth Paltrow talked about her co-parenting experience with ex-husband Chris Martin
  • The "Iron Man" star said she is in a better place with Martin after their divorce 
  • Paltrow said she didn't want a divorce, so they worked hard before ultimately calling it quits

Gwyneth Paltrow admitted that there were days when she didn't want to see her ex Chris Martin especially when they were going through their divorce, but she had to because they agreed to co-parent their children.

Paltrow made a virtual appearance in the Tuesday episode of "The Drew Barrymore Show." During her guesting, she talked about co-parenting with the the Coldplay singer and its challenges.

"Chris and I committed to putting them first and that’s harder than it looks because some days you really don’t want to be with the person that you are getting divorced from," the GOOP founder said as quoted by Us Weekly.

"But if you’re committed to having family dinner then you do it. You take a deep breath, and you look the person in the eye, and you remember your pact, and you smile, and you hug and you recommit to this new relationship that you are trying to foster."

The "Iron Man" star added that they’ve been "trying their best" when it comes to co-parenting their daughter Apple, 16, and son Moses, 14. Paltrow added that she didn't want her kids to be traumatized by their divorce as much as possible.

At present, Paltrow and Martin are amicable. She said that she's in a better place with the singer than she was when they were married. She also admitted that she had to have a "radical accountability" to be the person she is today by recognizing that every relationship is 50/50.

"No matter what you think, how you think you were wronged, or how bad you perceive the other persons actions or whatever the case may be. If you are brave enough to take responsibility for your half and really look at your own garbage and your own trauma and how it’s presenting in the world and in your relationship, then there really is somewhere to go and something to learn and something to heal," Paltrow explained.

Paltrow admitted that she and Martin tried everything they could before giving up on their marriage. She didn't grow up around a lot of divorces, so going through it had been "bitter, acrimonious, unending" for her.

"With all my heart, I did not want that," she told British Vogue.

Paltrow is now married to Brad Falchuk. Meanwhile, Martin is dating "Fifty Shades of Grey" star Dakota Johnson.
