Gwyneth Paltrow Called a Great Beard by Chris Martin

Gwyneth Paltrow Has Been a "Great Beard For 10 Years" Jokes Chris Martin

Gwyneth Paltrow at the gym in NYC.

Gwyneth Paltrow was bundled up in workout gear after hitting the gym in NYC yesterday. Gwyneth has been laying low in Manhattan for the past few weeks while her famously guarded husband, Chris Martin, has actually opened up a bit as he promotes his new Coldplay album Mylo Xyloto. He was in the UK yesterday for an interview with the BBC, and the band performed live to release the record in Madrid last night. Chris also recently stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres show for an interview which airs later today, during which he joked that Gwyneth has been a "great beard for me now, for 10 years." Chris went on to say that his longest relationship other than with his wife is with bandmate Johnny Buckland — they've been "together" for 15 years this week!

Chris Martin's sense of humor has been peeking out frequently during this press tour. Earlier this week, when asked about doing a duet with his wife, he joked that it would take him "12 years" to build up the nerve to ask Gwyneth to duet with Coldplay. Mylo Xyloto has been getting largely positive reviews, and we'll soon see how the worldwide sales are going for its first week out.
