Gwyneth Paltrow has thrown her full support behind pal Madonna following her traumatic split from Guy Ritchie.

The Hollywood actress has been helping the "Like a Virgin" singer through the break-up, spending hours comforting her on the phone.

And Gwyneth has vowed to stand by her friend’s side throughout her upcoming divorce battle with Guy.

The actress announced her allegiance to camp Madge at a London Film Festival screening of her new movie, Two Lovers, last night.

She said: “She’s a very good friend. I’m supporting her in all the ways that I can.

“I’m just there for her. I speak to her a lot. I’m here on the other end of the phone.”
