Gwyneth Paltrow is willing to "bang" someone for a copy of the new Coldplay album.

The 'Country Strong' actress - who is married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, with whom she has two children, Apple (7) and Moses (5) - is, for some reason, having trouble getting hold of the new LP, which is due to be released in the autumn, despite her close relationship with the band.

She wrote on Twitter: "Who do I have to bang to get an advance copy of the new coldplay album? I mean, really.(sic)"

Despite her music-based issues, Gwyneth - who lives in London with Chris, who she married after knowing him for a year in 2003 - has previously admitted she loves her family life and likes to take her children to school regularly even though she is an Oscar-winning star.

She said: "I enjoy being a mother and staying at home and looking after my kids.

"I like being able to take the children to school and to make their food and spend a lot of time with them. It's a much more fulfilling kind of life for me. It's a lot easier now.

"I'm happiest when I'm sitting down for dinner with my family."
