Unlike her hit movie Meet The Parents, there are no awkward moments between Blythe Danner and her son-in-law, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, 35!
The 69-year-old Emmy and Tony award-winning actress and mother of Gwyneth Paltrow, 39, gets along smashingly with her famous SIL. Paltrow and Martin have two children, Apple, nearly 8, and Moses, 6.
Oh, Chris is wonderful and he’s so good with their children and he’s taught them those good English manners,” Danner told the Daily Mail.
Danner’s Oscar-winning daughter married the lead vocalist of Coldplay in December 2003.
I think he met Gwyneth about a week after Bruce died. He would have loved him,” Danner said of her late husband Bruce Paltrow, who died ten years ago due to complications from cancer and pneumonia. “He wrote the song ‘Fix You’ for Gwyneth when her father died and I weep every time I hear it,” Danner said of Martin.
“I’m mostly a jazz fan and I’ve never really been into rock ‘n’ roll music — although I guess Coldplay isn’t really rock ‘n’ roll — but he’s made me a convert,” she said of being a fan of Coldplay. “I do go to their concerts whenever we’re in the same town and I don’t even have to wear earplugs any more, which I did in the beginning.”
And the grandbabies are musical as well!
“They’re much more into Glee because Gwynnie’s been on the show,” she said. “Mosey is very musical and he sings a lot of the songs from Glee.”
Danner went on to say her late husband is dearly missed by all.
He was the heart of our family, a rock,” she said. “It’s almost ten years and I miss him every day.”
