Hollywood Couples Who Phone It In

The biggest news to hit the Internet - Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin made out during a recent Cold Play concert, and then they spent the evening canoodling at a Miami restaurant. According to certain sources, "She was all over him!" This is huge news considering that the two are each other.

As commonplace as this news should be -- husband kisses wife -- it made headlines on various entertainment Web sites last week and continues to do so even a week later. Why is it such a big deal the Gwyn and her man showed some affection toward each other? Maybe the Interwebs are so excited about this particular couple's PDA because, up until this week, they could have been legally separated and no one would be the wiser. They are never seen together, rarely discuss one another, and has Martin even written any Cold Play songs in dedication to his blond babe? "Yellow" came out before the two were even dating.

Given the recent divorce of one Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, another couple that you would never guess shared a bed, it's no wonder the gossip sites are excited about Martin and Paltrow actually hanging out together. Up until now, this couple seemed to be phoning it in.
