Beyonce Calls Gwyneth Paltrow "A Great Friend On Every Level"

The 'Love On Top' singer calls her Hollywood pal "incredible" as she talks about the pair's friendship.

Beyonce has opened up on her friendship with Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow calling the Iron Man star "incredible".

The pair have often been spotted spending time together over the years, especially since becoming mothers, and the singer has said it's great to have someone who understands the pressures of fame and juggling family life.

"She is incredible," the Destiny's Child singer told E! News. "She's a great friend on every level."

The 'Countdown' singer added: "I think for us, protecting our daughters is so important and … keeping things on our own terms, so I will still be protective and make sure [Blue Ivy] has a childhood and a great time."

Both stars' husbands [Jay-Z and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin] are also good friends, and as well as touring together over the years, performed a special New Year's co-headline show in Brooklyn to ring in 2013. 

Meanwhile, Beyonce was seen this week wowing on the red carpet in a sheer, sparkly gown as she launched her new documentary Life Is But A Dream.

The film opens up on the singer's private life – including her miscarriage and birth of her first child Blue Ivy.
