Elaborating a bit more, Paltrow continued, "I think that the more that you are willing to reveal to yourself what your damage is, what your pain is, what your truth is, the more you're able to really flourish as a human being."

"I have little kids in school. I want to maintain my marriage and my family, so I have to be here when he comes home," the Goop guru and mom to 9-year-old Apple and 7-year-old Moses added of how they communicate and coordinate in order to keep the family close.
"[Then] if I'm in Los Angeles for three days working, he does the school run, it's always one of us."
The happily married pair were recently spotted vacationing together in Hawaii with new tattoos! Paltrow now sports a 'C' near her hip, while Martin has a 'G' inked on his arm.
