Gwyneth Paltrow insists she doesn't have "an issue" with Jennifer Lawrence.
The 42-year-old actress claims she doesn't mind that her estranged husband Chris Martin, with whom she has daughter Apple, 10, and son Moses, eight, is now dating the 'Hunger Games' star, 24, and thinks she must be a "great" person.
When asked about their relationship, the 'Mortdecai' star told Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show: "Who says I don't approve [of Jennifer Lawrence]? Why not? Why is it going to be an issue? I respect him as the father of my children...It's his life and it's his decision... and I do think that he loves the kids so much and I don't think that he wouldn't be with someone who isn't great. And if I'm wrong, I'll come back here and tell you."
But the Oscar winner also wouldn't mind if Chris went on to date Rihanna because "she's so cool" or even troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan.
She added: "There is redemption. People get their acts together."
Meanwhile, Gwyneth regrets saying that she and Chris, 37, were "consciously uncoupling" when they announced their split last March.
She said: "I made a mistake in that I didn't give it context. Like, I didn't say, 'This is... a philosophy.' But it's a very noble idea, and it's a great thing, I think, to try to do for your kids. And it's working, but it is kind of a goofy term and I didn't know it was going to cause such a big thing."
