Gwyneth Paltrow: My marriage has gone through ‘terrible times’

Gwyneth Paltrow may have been crowned the most beautiful woman in the world, but that doesn't mean her life looks good all the time.

The "Iron Man 3" star surprised fans by admitting on "Chelsea Lately" earlier this week that she advised a friend to give her husband oral sex after fighting with him. "Whatever you're doing, do the opposite. If you feel angry, go at him with love and you give him a b---job," she said, according to the show's host.

That Paltrow seemed to be speaking from experience had us scratching our heads. You mean that she and husband Chris Martin actually fight?

Yep, in a new interview with U.K.'s Glamour magazine for its June cover, the 40-year-old actress admitted that her marriage of 10 years has hit its fair share of bumpy patches. "It's hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times," she said, according to Gossip Center. "We're the same as any couple."

Paltrow described herself as a "very grounded, homey person" and her husband as a "very mad scientist, genius songwriter." According to the Daily Mail, she claimed they work because "we laugh, we’re good friends, we like to do the same stuff."

But it also probably doesn't hurt that the Oscar-winning actress and her husband both give each other space. "I never say, 'Where are you? You should be home by now,'" Paltrow told Glamour. "I never place demands on him because I think he's a really talented man and he's putting something good into the world."

Still, Paltrow once asked her dad how he and her mother had stayed together for more than three decades. His reply? "We never wanted to get divorced at the same time."
