In Cold Play, Gwyneth Paltrow Nominates Ex Chris Martin in ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

1 minute read

Gwyneth Paltrow became the latest celebrity to take on the ALS ice bucket challenge on Wednesday, a social media phenomenon that aims to raise money and awareness for Lou Gehrig’s disease. But what made the Oscar winner’s Instagram video a little more interesting than those of other famous actors is that she nominated her estranged husband, Coldplay singer Chris Marin, to take on the challenge next.

Martin and Paltrow announced their split via her website, GOOP, in March saying they were “consciously uncoupling.” Since, the couple has said they’ve stayed “very close,” and have even vacationed in the Bahamas with their two children together.

They may both get dumped, but it’s for a good cause.
