Paltrow offering Madonna support through divorce

Gwyneth Paltrow is supporting her pop star friend Madonna through her divorce, the Hollywood actress has revealed.

At the premiere of her new file 'Two Lovers', the Oscar winner said: “She’s a very good friend. I’m supporting her in all the ways that I can. I’m just there for her.

“I speak to her a lot.”

The pair have a well-publicised friendship and are both yoga fans as well as splitting their time between the US and UK.

Paltrow’s new film, in which she stars with Joaquin Phoenix, tells the tale of a heartbroken man whose parents set him up with the daughter of a family friend.

But he meets Michelle (Paltrow), a volatile woman who has recently moved into the same apartment block.

Wearing a long black dress Paltrow, who will start work on 'Iron Man II' next year, last night said she was attracted to the film because of director James Gray’s European sensibilities.

But the award-winning actress said she has no intention of overworking.

She said: “I’ll never do the five movies a year thing ever again but one or two good ones, I’m game.”

The wife of Coldplay front man Chris Martin has launched a newsletter, Goop, with lifestyle tips for fans.

Asked where the strange name came from, she said: “It means anything. GP are my initials and it’s an old nickname.”

Paltrow, frequently seen out in skyscraper high heels since her recent return to film work, wore a floor-length black dress with flat shoes due to a knee injury.

She said she had hurt herself “being stupid”.

'The Two Lovers' premiere was part of the BFI London Film Festival.
