Gwyneth Paltrow reveals ‘conscious uncoupling’ was not her idea

When you think of Gwyneth Paltrow, the infamous term ‘conscious uncoupling’ probably comes to mind.

But now the actress has revealed she didn’t come up with the phrase, which was first used in an article on her website Goop to announce her marriage split from Chris Martin.

The 42-year-old told Fast Company magazine that one of her Goop editors actually had the idea.


“When I announced that I was separating on the website, [my editor] titled the piece ‘Conscious Uncoupling’ and I had no idea,” Gwyneth said.

After intense backlash from the public over the unique wording, the star added: ‘When something like that happens, I think everybody is like, ‘Oh, s***.’ I just tell them that I think we are creating interesting discussions.’
