Gwyneth Paltrow Covers Elle Magazine. Plus Talks Marriage-It Isn't All Rosy!

Gwyneth Paltrow is an actress, mother, wife, has wowed us with her singing and dancing talents on 'Glee' and the movie "Country Strong," lately she has delved into writing a cook book and sharing advice on everything via her website GOOP. 

What she rarely speaks on is her seven  year marriage to Cold Play's lead singer Chris Martin. In the September 2011 issue of Elle magazine Gwyneth finally opens up about the ups and downs of marriage, being with someone for such a long time and making it work. Below are a few excerpts and photos from her interview.

On keeping her marriage out of the spotlight: "He makes music for his fans, and he doesn’t want people to conjure a lame famous couple when they’re getting into his music. I get it."

On the false rumors of a split: "Sometimes it’s hard being with someone for a long time. We go through periods that aren’t all rosy. I always say, life is long and you never know what’s going to happen. If, God forbid, we were ever not to be together, I respect him so much as the father of my children. Like, I made such a good choice. He’s such a good dad." 

On Making Marriage Work:
"You can never be relaxed or smug and think, I’ve got this thing. That’s also part of it—keeping yourself on your toes. I’m not going to take this for granted."

On showing the world a different side of herself: "If you speak to my friends who’ve known me since I was four, they’ll say, ‘That is her.’ They always said to me, ‘You’re the dirtiest person in the world and so funny. Show the world that side of you.’ I felt guarded. I felt like if I really showed people more of me and I was still not accepted, then…Who cares. You just realize it doesn’t matter what people think of you."
