From the BBC:
Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow and celebrity vegetarian Gwyneth Paltrow are to separate after more than 10 years of trying to juggle their careers as a Hollywood actress and a mollycoddling Earth mother, the women have said.
Paltrow, 41, and Paltrow, 41, announced the split on the blog run by the ditzy diet specialist in a post titled Conscious Uncoupling.
"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate," the self-appointed supermum wrote.
The film star, who shot to stardom in films such as Se7en and Sliding Doors, and the macrobiotic blogger have two children - Apple, nine, and Moses, seven. A spokeswoman for the actress confirmed the split, the Associated Press news agency reported.
In a separate message on her own website, the actress said they had "come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much, I am a bit tired of this woman's endless self-promotion of herself as a lifestyle guru on the back of my undoubted ability to play lightweight but self-reliant blondes in mainstream movies".
The actress is expected to remain in Los Angeles and resume her party lifestyle, while the health food freak will return to the home they shared in London and probably open a Fair Trade restaurant or a crystal healing parlour or something. They will share joint custody of their children.
In other news, devout Christian Chris Martin, 37, has announced his separation from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, also 37.
