Gwyneth Paltrow caught some flack last week after she and her famous friends attempted to give working moms advice in her GOOP newsletter. The tips provided — like hiring a personal assistant — were criticized as out of touch. But in a new interview with Good Housekeeping, the Country Strong actress's thoughts on keeping her marriage strong sound relatable, if you ask me. Here are some of the highlights:
- On the ups and downs of marriage: "Marriage is hard. Chris and I have had our ups and downs, big-time. Marriage is way more complicated than just 'Who gets to control the remote?' But hopefully we keep heading in the same direction and getting through the obstacles."
- On the challenges of being with someone from a different country: "I definitely have to coax things out of him when we talk. You know, he's British, so it's a different lexicon totally. But you have to communicate. Otherwise there's no relationship."
- On why their relationship survives: "I can depend on him. He makes me laugh. He's really appreciative of me. You know, he makes me feel special."
