One bird, three meals and some deep gratitude.
Three days after Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin split, the actress offered all of the above in breaking her silence via her Goop lifestyle website.
In an online journal post about chicken dinners, she added a sweet but simple postscript: "P.S. CM and I in deep gratitude for the support of so many."
Paltrow, 41, and Martin, 37, surprisingly announced on Tuesday that they decided to part ways, or, as it has come to be known, "consciously uncouple."
"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate," Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin said in a statement, also appearing on Goop.
"We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us," they said.
Unfortunately, after that period of self-reflection, "we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate."
Prior to the big announcement, the couple escaped to the Bahamas with their two kids, Apple, 9, and Moses, 7, in a trip reportedly wrought with tension.
Both have been romantically linked to others in the last few months too, which they may have subtly acknowledged with the "some of it separated" bit.
Chris and Alexa Chung are said to be into each other, while Gwyneth was spotted kissing her ex Donovan Leitch at an L.A. Dodgers game last fall.
Now that the conscious uncoupling is out in the open, both are free to publicly fornicate (we hope that becomes a term) with whomever they please.
I've learned more about myself being married than anything else. I hate to say, "We've got it worked out," because you never know what's going to happen, but we laugh, we're good friends, we like to do the same stuff.
It's hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We're the same as any couple.
I definitely have to coax things out of him when we talk. You know, he's British, so it's a different lexicon totally. But you have to communicate. Otherwise there's no relationship.
We've gone through some terrible times where it's been really, really hard, but I've sort of come through those times with a much deeper understanding of myself. And we're still married. We worked through it. I think it's easier to get divorced. But I think the more you keep at it, the more you end up seeing the value in it. But man, sometimes it is not easy.
Sometimes it's hard being with someone for a long time. We go through periods that aren't all rosy. I always say, life is long and you never know what's going to happen.
I'm a very grounded, homey person and Chris is a very mad scientist, genius songwriter. So I never say, "Where are you? You should be home by now." I never place demands on him.
When two people throw in the towel at the same time, then you break up, but if one person's saying, 'come on, we can do this,' you carry on."
