Though their marriage might not have worked out, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's friendship is as strong as ever.

Paltrow, 43, opened up about her new family dynamic with Martin, 39, and how they have managed to remain amicable nearly two years after announcing their split.

"It's like we are still a family, but not a couple," the actress told Marie Claire Australia. "I think we are better as friends than we were [married]. We are very close and supportive of one another."

But while Paltrow and the Coldplay frontman have maintained a close relationship for the sake of their two children, Apple, 11 and Moses, 10, the actress admitted that they still struggle at times.

"It hasn't always been easy for us because you have good days and bad days as you do in life with anything," she said. "But I feel lucky because Chris has been willing to push himself for the sake of the kids and help me co-create this new family."

The family recently traveled to Argentina and Peru to support Martin in the first leg of his band's tour. They are also often seen spending holidays and birthday together as well.

And while they seem to have co-parenting down, both Paltrow and Martin have moved on romantically. The actress has been dating Glee and Scream Queens co-creator Brad Falchuk, and Martin has been linked to actress Annabelle Wallis.

Paltrow played coy when talking about her relationship with Falchuck, but said she still believes in marriage.

"I don't want to say too much, but I will say you just never know what is going to happen, what people are you going to meet, what amazing lessons you are going to learn," she said. "I think marriage is a really beautiful and noble institution, but it is not like I am holding a goal of getting remarried."
