Gwyneth Paltrow gets it. Despite marrying Hollywood director Brad Falchuk more than a year ago, the couple chose to wait until recently to move in together in an effort “to let the dust settle.” Evidently though, fighting over the doona and sharing washing up duties has taken its toll on their desire.
“So our sex life is over," she shared in a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar. "I thought it was really interesting how resonant that was for people. One of my best friends was like, ‘That is my dream. Don't ever move in.'”
The Goop founder had previously been open about how Brad would stay at his own place while his children Brody and Isabella were visiting, then pack a bag to spend four nights a week at hers.
“I think it certainly helps with preserving mystery and also preserving the idea that this person has their own life,” she said. “So this is something I'm trying to remain aware of now as we merge together.”
Always the progressive one when it comes to making marital decisions, she also shared how she feels about having Dakota Johnson (her ex-husband Chris Martin’s new girlfriend) for a BFF.
“I love her,” she told the publication. “I can see how it would seem weird because it’s sort of unconventional. But I think, in this case, just having passed through it iteratively, I just adore her. I always start to think of the ampersand sign—what else can you bring in, instead of being resistant to or being made insecure by? There’s so much juice in leaning into something like that.”
We’ll take your word on that, Gwyn.
