Gwyneth Paltrow is apparently happy that her ex-husband Chris Martin is dating Jennifer Lawrence.

A source close to the Iron Man star told E! News: "Gwyneth is very happy for Chris, that he has moved on and found someone else.

"Their split has been remarkably amiable and they both just want the best for one another."

The 41-year-old actress, who has daughter Apple (10) and son Moses (8) with the Coldplay front man, "can see why Jennifer is a good match for Chris."

The insider explained: "Chris is very drawn to her personality, and ambition and talent. There are actually some amazing similarities between Jennifer and Gwyneth and how they view life and career, and so Gwyneth knows that ultimately Jennifer has the power to make Chris happy in the long term.

"And that's all Gwyneth wants for Chris. They might not be a couple anymore, but they will always be co-parents and best friends."
