(Newser) – Chris Martin is notoriously private when it comes to his relationship with Gwyneth Paltrow—but that all changed this weekend. In a CBS News interview that aired yesterday, the Coldplay frontman admitted that his marriage is actually his first serious relationship. Going from "being a loser to going out with an Oscar winner" is a "giant leap," he added. "Let’s face it: It’s like winning the lottery."

And that was the second time Martin talked about his wife in as many days: In an interview published in the Daily Mail Saturday, he said Paltrow is “a good actress. I am biased but I am also right. The Royal Tenenbaums is one of her best performances." He also addressed her recent comments implying that cheating on your spouse isn’t so bad. “Did she say that? I don’t read any of these things,” he said, before joking, “Right, well, I’m a notorious love rat and I think that’s what she’s going on about.” Click for more.

This dude is pussified to the max. Paltrow is grotesque. The last male that was interested in her was the german shepherd sniffing her twat for drugs in Heathrow. This pathetic plea is a certain indicator of a failed marriage that is already over except the lawyers settlement. Can't you just hear Paltrow complaining about everything... what a skinny fake douchebag. Oh, I mean Country Music Recording Artist.
