London, Apr. 15 (ANI): Gwyneth Paltrow has said that she is grateful about the false reports linking her with Chris Martin as it brought the couple together.
The 40-year-old actress told the Sun that it was funny as people had started writing that the couple were going out even though they had never even met.
She said that once Martin was in Los Angeles playing in a gig and an actress that he had a crush on was supposed to come to the concert and when she didn't show up, he was so annoyed that he said, "Oh, this is for my girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow."
"Then people were saying, 'What's going on?' I was like, 'I've never met this guy, I've no idea!" she said.
Paltrow asserted that because of that and because people were writing about it, the couple ended up meeting at a Coldplay concert in London.
She said that his assistant came to her seat at the concert and asked her if she will come back and say hello afterwards.
The couple got married just over a year later in December 2003 and now are proud parents to daughter Apple, eight, and a seven-year-old son, Moses. (ANI)
