Gwyneth Paltrow seen 'laughing it up' in Hollywood before announcing marriage split
E! News claims the actress was spotted attending Rob Lowe’s 50th birthday party in Hollywood, with stars such as Cameron Diaz and Oprah Winfrey in attendance.
Not long after that, Gwyneth and Chris took their children Apple, nine, and Moses, seven, to the Bahamas before confirming their breakup via Gwyneth’s lifestyle website Goop on March 25.
"Gwyneth stuck nearby Cameron all night," a source told E! "She was so positive and was in great spirits all night and was laughing it up at one point with Ellen [DeGeneres] and Portia [de Rossi]."
Gwyneth’s high spirits may not come as a surprise considering the emphasis she and Chris have put on remaining friends.
The couple have insisted the split is amicable and they will continue to co-parent their children.
“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,” Gwyneth previously told the US edition of Elle magazine. “He’s such a good dad. 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.”
This sentiment is echoed by Chris’ father Anthony Martin, who insists there will always be love and respect between the pair.
“If you are married you know you have good days and bad days,” he recently told UK newspaper The Mirror. “We all have our ups and downs. It is sad because there are our two grandchildren. But it is all very amicable between them.”
