(Newser) – Madonna and longtime friend Gwyneth Paltrow might not have the same kind of personal lives, OK! reports, but the actress sees the singer as an inspirational figure. “She’s a real survivor,” Paltrow said. “Every problem that I’ve had, she’s had 10 problems worse.” And she’s “a caring woman,” Paltrow says. “She’s Madonna and she comes with all this stuff but she’s pretty incredible.”
