The Hollywood actress made the phrase famous when announcing her split from British rocker Chris Martin last year (14).

A statement, which was posted on, read, "It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate... We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."

Gwyneth and Chris appeared to remain amicable after the breakdown of the marriage and are often seen together with their two children.

The Iron Man star has now shared the secrets of a successful split in an article posted on her website.

The piece, which is titled Conscious Uncoupling: A Roadmap For The Process, points fans towards a book about the subject.

It reads, "Have you ever heard the phrase 'Conscious Uncoupling'? We definitely broke the internet when GP (Gwyneth) referenced this specific, gentler way to break up back in 2014... After the initial WTF?!? (what the f**k), there was a lot of interest in what it actually means, and as GP, her ex, and their children have continued to stay very much a family in spite of the split, there has been a lot of interest in how to actually do it."
