Gwyneth Paltrow says co-parenting with ex Chris Martin has been "hard" but that they have made their two children their priority and have remained friends since their split.
The 42-year-old Oscar winner, who shares daughter Apple, 11, and Moses, 9, with the Coldplay singer, made her comments on Friday at the #BlogHer15 conference in New York, presented by SheKnows Media.
"I think, unfortunately, though we couldn't stay in a romantic relationship, we're very, our values are very much around the importance of family and the importance of those relationships and I'm lucky that we're aligned in that way," she said. "And it's been hard, and you know, like, we've gone through really difficult times with it but we've always said these children are our priority."
"What that really means is, 'Even though today, you hate me and you never want to see me again, like, we're going to brunch, 'cause it's Sunday and that's what we'll do!' You know, like, 'That's what's happening!'" she said. "Like, the children are our commitment."
Paltrow and Martin, 38, married in 2003. In 2014, they announced on her Goop blog that they had split, or undergone what they dubbed an "conscious uncoupling." Paltrow filed for divorce this past April.
She and her ex have occasionally spent time together with their kids since their 2014 split and both have also moved onto new relationships–he was most recently linked to Jennifer Lawrence, 24, while Paltrow is said to be dating "Glee" co-creator Brad Falchuk.
This year, she and Martin were together on Valentine's Day with their kids and took them on a vacation to Mexico in April. This past Thursday, Martin brought Apple and Moses to Paltrow's Goop and Net-a-Porter garden party in the Hamptons.
"It's definitely imperfect but it gets easier with time and you know, we're really good friends," Paltrow said at the conference. "I like him. He's great. He's a great dad and so, I feel lucky that we both, along the way, have been able to really put down our own stuff while we're together with the family and that we make it a priority to be together so that the transition for the children wasn't, you know, as brutal as it could be."
"And everybody does it in their own way," she added. "It's hard and I would never judge anyone for doing it any way. Just, for us, we thought if we could maintain the family even though we're changing the shape of it, it would be, that would be our ideal scene and so, that's what we're trying to do."
