This should get a high click-through rate! Gwyneth Paltrow trolled Goop newsletter subscribers on Thursday, Oct. 1, when she blasted her weekly email with the subject line, "Conscious Uncoupling 2.0."
Paltrow, 43, made the phrase famous when she used it to announce her split from her husband, Chris Martin, in a March 2014 newsletter. In her latest blast, the mom of two again used "Conscious Uncoupling" to promote….. a new manual by marital therapist Katherine Woodward Thomas, who came up with the term.
"Have you ever heard the phrase 'Conscious Uncoupling'?" the Goop post read. "We definitely broke the internet when GP [Gwyneth Paltrow] referenced this specific, gentler way to break up back in 2014. Originally coined and taught by the brilliant marriage and family therapist Katherine Woodward Thomas, the concept of Conscious Uncoupling had quietly inspired and influenced a community of counselors—until, of course, we accidentally blew it up."
Married since 2003, Paltrow and Martin secretly began the process of "conscious uncoupling" in 2012, before formally announcing it two years later. According to the recent Goop post, Paltrow has since been deluged with questions from fans about how to successfully uncouple and keep a family together.
"After the initial WTF?!?, there was a lot of interest in what it actually means," it read. "And as GP, her ex, and their children have continued to stay very much a family in spite of the split, there has been a lot of interest in how to actually do it. Last week, Woodward Thomas released Conscious Uncoupling: 5 Steps to Living Happily Even After, a manual that outlines and delves into ways a relationship can be completed and used as an opportunity for true healing and empowerment. It’s a must read for the modern breakup."
Indeed, since they chose to "consciously uncouple" last spring, both Paltrow and Martin, 38, have remained on good terms. The exes even spent Valentine's Day together this past year with their kids, Apple, 11, and Moses, 9.
In recent interviews, Paltrow opened up about the split and said that "there was nothing dramatic or anything" between her and the Coldplay rocker. “We've worked really f—king hard to get to [this] point," she told Marie Claire Australia. "But we're very, very close, and it's so nice. I feel like it's, in a way, the relationship we were meant to have."
