Might Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin be in the midst of a conscious... recoupling?
And that chatter is bound to grow louder after both stars attended a movie screening in East Hampton last night.
Accompanied by mother Blythe Danner, Paltrow hosted the event, held in honor of Hector And The Search For Happiness, a movie that stars Martin’s long-time pal Simon Pegg.
The Coldplay frontman was therefore also in attendance, acting like anything except a bitter ex-husband.
"They seemed so comfortable with each other," a witness tells People of Paltrow and Martin. "It was like they were still married.
Paltrow and Martin arrived at the screening separately, but spent a lot of time talking to friends together. They both also attended the evening's after-party at a nearby restaurant.
As the night came to an end, Martin motioned to Paltrow that he was ready to leave. They said farewell to their friends and departed, with Martin walking Danner out of the establishment and back to her car.
"I don't know what's going on with them," said another guest of Patlrow and Martin. "But they seem really happy."
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.Gwyneth Paltrow
It's hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We're the same as any couple.Gwyneth Paltrow
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.Gwyneth Paltrow
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.Gwyneth Paltrow
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.Gwyneth Paltrow
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.Gwyneth Paltrow
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."Gwyneth Paltrow
