The Coldplay frontman told BBC Radio 2 that he’s actually not even a vegetarian anymore, and although he doesn’t specifically site his separation from the actress as his reason, the timing is definitely suspicious.
“Well, I eat meat,” Chris said, point blank. “I was a vegetarian for quite a long time and then for various reasons I changed. My daughter’s vegetarian since she was born, so I keep getting tempted to go back. I don’t eat very much meat.”
But that doesn’t mean he’s scarfing down any and all types of animals! “I felt like you should only eat something that you’d be able to kill…you know, could you kill a fish? I wouldn’t like it, but I probably could, so I’ll eat a fish.”
At that point, the Brit realized the effect his revelation would have. “I don’t know why on earth we’re talking about this,” he joked. “I’ve gotta stop talking — this will be some kind of headline!”
Chris and Gwyneth announced earlier this year that they were “consciously uncoupling,” but have since been seen on several occasions together, with their two kids.
