There's been plenty of snark and snickering since Gwyneth Paltrow announced that she and husband Chris Martin would be "consciously uncoupling" via Goop. Still, at least the soon-to-be-single Oscar winner can count on having gal pal Cameron Diaz in her corner.
"For both Chris and Gwyneth, I mean, they worked really hard," Diaz told E! News at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. "People want them to blow up and it to be ugly, but they're kind, generous, loving people who really care about one another. Just because they don't want to be a couple together, doesn't mean that they have to hate one another. They are really good friends."
Adding that Paltrow is "doing great," Diaz continued to lavish praise on the former couple for their "brave" decision. "They've made a conscious effort to separate the part of their lives they don't want to live together anymore, and maintain a really beautiful, strong bond as parents and as friends," The Other Woman star said. "I think people should really honor that and they should admire it and they should respect it. They've done something really extraordinary, and they've been very brave at presenting that to the public."
Fair enough. Nothing like a good friend to see you through a painful
split uncoupling. (E! News)
