In an interview with the Today programme this week, the 48-year-old Oscar-winner said she has a very positive relationship with her ex.

"He's like my brother. You know, he's my family," Paltrow said.

"I love him. And I'm so grateful to him for giving me these kids. It worked out well, you know, it really did, I have to say."
