Gwyneth Paltrow took to Goop and the lifestyle site's regular weekly email Friday to offer thanks to supporters standing by her and her "consciously uncoupled" husband, Chris Martin, in their freshly announced separation.

But first there was chicken. Three ways to prepare it, in fact. The thanks came in the form of a P.S. below her usual introduction, as in:

“P.S. CM and I in deep gratitude for the support of so many.” She added a little heart at the end.

The 41-year-old actress announced their split Tuesday on Goop, staying away from the D word — divorce — and earning a new round of sneers and mockery when she used the New Agey term “conscious uncoupling” instead, with explanation.

Paltrow and the frontman for Coldplay married in 2003 and have two children.

Footage of the sci-fi drama "Transcendence" previewed at CinemaCon in Las Vegas shows an eerily convincing Johnny Depp as a terminally ill scientist turned unruly machine in the Wally Pfister film that asks: What if we could upload a human mind into a computer?

Warner Bros. was the final studio to preview its upcoming titles at the theater exhibitor’s convention Thursday, and it ended with an impressive crew of A-listers led by Depp.

The “Transcendence” clips were packed with explosions, sentimental moments between Depp (as Will) and leading lady Rebecca Hall (as Evelyn), and striking supporting performances by Kate Mara and Paul Bettany.

Morgan Freeman, Drew Barrymore, Adam Sandler, Clint Eastwood, Melissa McCarthy, Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis were among the other stars touting their upcoming projects.
