Paltrow holds hands with Dakota Johnson after praise for Chris Martin
During an online Q&A with fans, Gwyneth Paltrow shared a photo that illustrated the good vibes between her and Dakota Johnson, Chris Martin’s girlfriend.
Gwyneth Paltrow has offered up further evidence of her good relationship with Dakota Johnson, sharing a photo of the pair holding hands with beaming smiles on their faces.
Fifty Shades actor Johnson has been in a relationship with Paltrow’s former husband, Coldplay front man Chris Martin, since 2017.
“Photo with Dakota”
During a Q&A session with her social-media followers on Instagram Stories on Wednesday, Paltrow was asked for a “photo with Dakota” - and the Hollywood icon-turned-lifestyle mogul duly obliged with the following pic:
“I love her” - Paltrow on “gem” Johnson
Paltrow, who was married to Martin from 2003 to 2016, has previously spoken of her positive rapport with Johnson.
“I love her,” Paltrow declared in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar in 2020. “I can see how it would seem weird because it’s sort of unconventional. But I think, in this case, just having passed through it iteratively, I just adore her.
“I always start to think of the ampersand sign - what else can you bring in, instead of being resistant to or being made insecure by? There’s so much juice in leaning in to something like that.”
In an Instagram post wishing Johnson a happy birthday in 2019, Paltrow described the 34-year-old as an “absolute gem”.
Co-parent Martin “sprinkles fairy dust”
Paltrow’s pic with Johnson comes two weeks after the Oscar winner spoke glowingly of her experience of co-parenting with Martin, with whom she has two children: son Moses, 17, and daughter Apple, 19.
Speaking to People magazine, Paltrow said: “He has this sweet child-like spirit, and I love that he will be like, ‘Let’s go jump in the ocean’ when it’s 58 degrees, or, ‘Let’s go to this weird guitar store.’
“He always wants to do these fun adventures with them and activities.”
The 51-year-old added: “[He] has a real sweetness. And so he brings that to the way that he parents them. He’s sort of gone a lot, he’s on the road a lot, but he brings - it’s almost like he comes and sprinkles fairy dust.”
Watch: Madame Web trailer
Johnson’s new movie, the Marvel superhero picture Madame Web, is due to be released in the United States in February 2024.
