gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin

Despite announcing their intentions to "unconsciously uncouple" in March, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin seem pretty close this summer, at least when it comes to location. 

The pair, married for a decade, are living separately but only blocks from each other in the Hamptons. 

Parents to Apple, 10, and Moses, 8, the Coldplay frontman and doting dad has made it clear that although he and the actress are no longer together, they'll remain friends for the sake of the kids. 

So far, it seems to be working. In fact, their "friendship," evidenced by frequent family outings, which have included trips to the beach, skateboarding, and out for pizza, have caused rampant speculation that duo may consciously re-couple.

But while speaking to Ryan Seacrest recently, Martin set the record straight, noting, "...we're friends and proud parents. There's lots of love, and that's it."

The Paltrow-Martins aren't the only Hollywood A-listers who've tried to maintain a good relationship for the sake of family. 

Other celebrity couples who've remained friends include Courtney Cox and David Arquette, parents to daughter Coco. Cox has reasoned that when you love someone, you root for their happiness, even if it's not with you. 

Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, too, have also stayed pals and are often seen out with their daughters, Rumor, 25, Scout, 23, and Tallulah, 21.

It's not every couple who could remain friends, let alone neighbors, but if it works, good for them!    

Are you surprised that Gwyneth and Chris live so close to one another?
