Is Gwyneth Paltrow the new celebrity to
convert to Judaism? Gwyneth Paltrow is reportedly planning to
convert to Judaism to follow in the footsteps of her late father
Bruce Paltrow. Is it a decision which is due to the separation with
now estranged husband, Chris Martin?
Gwyneth, whose late father was Jewish, is said to have decided
to convert following her "conscious uncoupling" from husband Chris
Martin. The "Iron Man 3" star, who recently started dating "Glee"
co-creator Brad Falchuk, has reportedly given Chris Martin, whom
she split from in March after 10 years of marriage, her blessing
after learning he has moved on with with Jennifer Lawrence.
The 41-year-old, who has daughter Apple, 10, and eight-year-old
son Moses with Martin, will repotedly quietly convert after years
of following Kabbalah, which originated in Judaism, and being
friends with Michael Berg, co-director of the Kabbalah Centre.
Gwyneth, whose mother Blythe Danner is a Christian, previously
confessed that she was raised both as a Jewish and Christian, said
it "was such a nice way to grow up".
Jennifer Lawrence and Martin first sparked dating rumours after
being spotted together at the after-party of Coldplay's gig in
London in July. Reportedly, the odd couple Chris Martin and
Jennifer Lawrence have been dating since June but not disclosing it
