Does Gwyneth Paltrow Regret Moving In With Husband Brad Falchuk?

Gwyneth Paltrow is one of those celebrities that everyone always seems to be talking about. Whether it’s her newest Goop related item or a new role, she’s never irrelevant. And now she’s bringing her business to Netflix in a new documentary called the goop lab. People already have feelings against it

But despite all that, it seems like Paltrow’s home life is great. Even though she and her husband Brad Falchuk did finally move in together.

Paltrow and Falchuk owned different houses

After the couple married in 2018, Paltrow got everyone’s attention when she revealed that she and Falchuk don’t live in the same house. “Oh, all my married friends say that the way we live sounds ideal and we shouldn’t change a thing,” she told the Sunday Times, E! News reported. 

That wasn’t the only unconventional thing she’s done since she got married, either. She actually went on a sort of “modern honeymoon” with her kids, her ex, Coldplay singer Chris Martin, and his girlfriend, actress Dakota Johnson. According to Reginery29, Paltrow told the Telegraph that her kids “just want to see their parents [together] around the dinner table.”

Things are different now that they moved in together

Paltrow and Falchuk finally moved in together, but is it a good thing? “So our sex life is over,” she joked with Harper’s Bazaar in her Jan. 7 cover story. 

“I thought it was really interesting how resonant that was for people. One of my best friends was like, ‘That is my dream. Don’t ever move in.’ I think it certainly helps with preserving mystery and also preserving the idea that this person has their own life. So this is something I’m trying to remain aware of now as we merge together.”

Paltrow and Falchuk met on the set of Glee, which he wrote and co-created with Ryan Murphy before the two showrunners moved on to do American Horror Story. Paltrow and Falchuk became close friends. “She’s stunning and she’s charming and she’s completely disarming,” Falchuk said of his wife. 

Don’t worry; they seem pretty happy together

Of course, Paltrow was joking about the “no sex” thing. In fact, Falchuk had a lot of amazing things to tell Haper’s Bazaar about. “There’s a public Gwyneth Paltrow, and there are all these ideas about who that is,” he said. He continued:

And the reality is, the real Gwyneth Paltrow is so much more amazing, so much more than that, and that’s the one that I keep getting struck by and can’t believe I’m married to. All that curiosity and humility and non-judgment and desire for growth, and openness and excitement about the world. It’s like, well, when that’s your wife, how do you not have the same approach?”

And despite what things look like on the outside, Paltrow said it can be harmful when others try to create the real you in their minds. She told the publication, “Being the person that people perceive me to be is inherently traumatic.”
