Chris Martin stopped by a Los Angeles area convenience store recently where the Coldplay singer astonishingly stopped to answer paparazzi questions about whether he and Gwyneth Paltrow are getting back together.
The answer? Maybe! Or maybe not...
When asked why he's still spending time with his ex, Martin simply replied, "Well, you've gotta hang out, you know?"
Realizing that he may have led the paparazzi to believe that he and Gwyneth are patching things up, Martin then clarified that despite having just answered the question he is "not answering your question."
Yes, Chris is frustratingly vague when discussing his "conscious uncoupling," but he does seem to acknowledge that the photogs have good reason to wonder if the famous couple is on the verge of reconciliation.
After all, Paltrow and Martin are still living together and have been recently spotted going out on what appear to be dates.
Sure, there are also rumors that Martin is dating Alexa Chung, but if reports that the the Paltrow-Martins enjoyed an "open marriage" are true, then a little thing like a girlfriend shouldn't prevent them from getting back together, right?
But why are we speculating? Even Chris probably has no idea if he and Gwyneth will reconcile. We get the feeling decisions like that are made by Gwyneth and Gwyneth alone.
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.
