Gwyneth Paltrow comes clean!
While on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show on Wednesday, the ‘Mortdecai’ star opened up about her past relationships with both Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck.
“I definitely fell in love with him,” she said of Pitt, to whom she was engaged in the mid-’90s. “He was so gorgeous and sweet. I mean, he was Brad Pitt!”
Gwyneth — who dated the now father-of-six for three years after meeting on set of the 1995 thriller ‘Seven’ — blames her youth for the breakup, “I was such a kid, I was 22 when we met. It’s taken me until 40 to get my head out of my ass. You can’t make that decision when you’re 22 years old… I wasn’t ready, and he was too good for me.”
She adds her father, Bruce Paltrow, saw Brad — who’s now married to Angelina Jolie — as a son, and that he was “devastated” when the pair split.
Following the end of that romance, Gwyneth began dating Ben in 1997, but it fizzled in 2000 because, as she claims, “He was not in a good place in his life to have a girlfriend.”
Luckily, he seems to have matured since then, having been married to actress Jennifer Garner, with whom he has three kids, since 2005.
When it’s all said and done, we’ll allow the mother-of-two to blame her unfortunate splits from Hollywood’s hottest men to “conscious uncoupling” – a term she coined during her divorce from estranged husband Chris Martin last year.
