American actress Gwyneth Paltrow has dismissed media reports she hates living in London.

Paltrow, the wife of Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, denies having said the British capital is dirty and has a rubbish service industry, insisting if she had that opinion she would return home to the US.

She says, "I said that? Oh please, that's such bulls**t.

"I never said London was dirty. I love London, otherwise I wouldn't live here.

"I love walking in the parks and I love my old neighbourhood in Belgravia.

"When Apple was born I used to walk and walk all over Pimlico. I love Locanda Locatelli and Zuma and I love pizza places."
