Gwyneth Paltrow is convinced her home life with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin would make brilliant sitcom, because they often get hilariously confused by the different connotations of American and British words.

The Shakespeare In Love actress married Martin two years ago (03) but admits the culture difference still creates problems - especially when family members come to stay.

She says, "Lots of things come up that are different. There are times when I say, 'Oh gosh. I didn't mean that.'

"Once I was describing something someone had in their fanny pack, but in England you don't call it a fanny pack - for a good reason."

She adds, "When my in-laws come over to America I have to translate for them and explain what certain words mean. It's very funny. It would make a good sitcom."
