The Coldplay front-man – who has long been reluctant to talk about his relationship with the Oscar-winning actress, with who he has children Apple, seven and Moses, five – admitted he does not like to discuss Gwyneth while on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ but joked he is secretly gay and uses her as his “beard”, a term used where a woman pretends to be married to a man because he is hiding his sexuality.
Ellen said: “You have had a great relationship and two precious kids. And we love Gwyneth. She’s been here many times,” to which British-born Chris responded: “She’s been a great beard for me now, for 10 years.”
Ellen added: “Is that right? It’s not really a real relationship?” and Chris responded: “Yes, it’s hard to believe.”
Jokes schmokes, Chris, jokes schmokes..
