The INSIDER Summary:
- Gwyneth Paltrow admitted that she hasn’t always been a saint when it comes to her love life.
- She told a podcast that she “f—— up” her relationship with Brad Pitt.
- But Paltrow said she’s put in the work to have healthy relationship now.
Gwyneth Paltrow may seem like she has it all together with her conscious uncoupling from ex-husband Chris Martin and running her Goop empire. But in a new interview, she admitted that her love life is the one aspect that can be a little more messy— and ex Brad Pitt learned that the hard way.
Speaking to Sophia Amoruso on her Girl Boss podcast, Paltrow said that she’s struggled with romantic relationships more than other relationships in her life.
“I’m actually a pretty good friend, and a good sister and a daughter and a mother, but I’m at my potentially most vulnerable and f—– up in the romantic slice of the pie,” she said.
Paltrow was not shy about joking that she was a big part of the demise of her relationship with Pitt that ended in 1997.
“I f—– that up, Brad!” she said with a laugh.
Paltrow and Pitt dated between 1994 and 1997 after meeting on the set of the movie “Se7en.” They got engaged in 1996 before splitting the following year.
“I take the institution extremely seriously. There are no divorces in my family either — and in his either, so this is not something — we’ve been together for quite some time, so this is not a rash decision,” she said at the time, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Though their partnership was short-lived, the two were frequently captured on the red carpet with their very ’90s outfits and nearly identical haircuts.
Paltrow said that she’s worked on her issues as far as romance following her divorce from Martin and that she’s now in a healthy relationship with TV writer and producer Brad Falchuk.
“It’s taken me a lot of, a lot of work to get to the place where I have a good romantic relationship,” she said.
For someone as put together as Paltrow to admit she hasn’t always been the ideal partner is an important reminder to everyone that relationships are work — Goop queen or not.
