Gwyneth shared a photo of her posing near the grave with her two children – who she shares with ex Chris Martin – on Instagram.
The Goop founder wrote: “On this November 26th, I was able to visit my fathers resting place (on his birthday) with these two loves of my life.
“Happy thanksgiving. Life has incredible highs and lows. Perhaps feeling it all at the same time is the art.”
Movie producer Bruce died aged 53 in 2002. He had married Gwyneth’s actress mother, Bythe Danner in 1969.

He died of oral cancer complications, which he had battled for several years, and pneumonia.
Bruce and Blythe also have a son, Jake, who is 45.
Gwyneth previously revealed her life “changed” when she learned that Bruce had cancer.
“I got a call that changed my life. My father had been diagnosed with throat cancer, and it was stage four,” she wrote in a Goop newsletter.

“Although he underwent treatment and survived for another four years, I watched his health deteriorate slowly until his death in 2002.”
She has kept Bruce’s wedding ring in a bid to feel closer to him
“I always hold on to his wedding ring. I ask it questions, I feel like it keeps me safe. I really sense the energy of his soul, I don’t think that evaporates,” the Iron Man actress said.
“I feel my dad, I still feel his love, I still speak to him and I still love him.”

Gwyneth previously revealed she relied heavily on her ex Chris’ Coldplay songs to help her cope with her grief.
The Talented Mr Ripley star met Chris, 43, three weeks after Bruce died.
She listened to a lot of the 2000 Coldplay album Parachutes, particularly the song “Everything’s Not Lost.”
“He wrote this song before I met him, and I think another reason it’s sad for me is my father had just died when this album came out, and we used to listen to it kind of on repeat. Especially this song at the end,” Gwyneth said on Sirius XM.

Gwyneth is now married to Brad Falchuk[/caption]
