Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her rock star husband Chris Martin say they are separating after ten years of marriage. The former couple published a joint statement on Paltrow's lifestyle website, Goop.com, on Tuesday (March 25) under the title "Conscious Uncoupling". "It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate," the post reads. It adds: "We have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been." The US Actress, who won an Academy Award for "Shakespeare in Love," and Coldplay frontman Martin married in December 2003. They have two children, Apple and Moses. Paltrow and Martin have always tried to keep their personal life under wraps and have avoided being photographed together in public. They finished the statement by saying that "We have always conducted our relationship privately and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."
