Hittin' the Pubs

Locals at a Devon pub were surprised to see Gwyneth Paltrow walk into their boozer for a drink. The Hollywood actress was reportedly taken there by her boyfriend Chris Martin, the lead singer of Coldplay. The celebrity pair strolled into the Royal Oak pub and then sat in a corner. Chris had brought Gwyneth to Devon to stay with his parents in Nadderwater for a few days over Christmas. The pub is about half a mile away from his parents' 19th century Georgian manor house. One local at the bar told The Sun: "There had been talk that they were coming down for Christmas. It had caused quite a stir locally. It's not every day you go out for a drink at your local and find a Hollywood actress in there. Chris had soft drinks because he's a teetotaller and I didn't notice what Gwyneth was drinking."
Later the couple flew to Los Angeles to see in the New Year and are now thought to be on holiday in the Maldives. Chris met the US actress at a concert by his band, who have had several hits including Scientist and Yellow. She is also believed to have visited his family home while in the area making a film about poet Sylvia Plath.
