In an interview with goop Magazine, Paltrow explained her reason for trying marriage again.

I have decided to give it a go again, not only because I believe I have found the man I was meant to be with, but because I have accepted the soul-stretching, pattern-breaking opportunities that (terrifyingly) are made possible by intimacy.

Speaking with ET in April, she also confessed that her previous relationships were devoid of intimacy, a quality which she seems to have finally found with fiancé Falchuck. She says he sometimes pulls her out of her comfort zone by insisting she embrace intimacy and communication.


Before Martin, Paltrow had a staggered relationship with Justice League and Batman star, Ben Affleck. Unfortunately, their connection was never strong enough to lead them to the altar.

In an interview with Howard Stern on his SiriusXM, she explained why a wedding between her and Affleck never happened.

It’s interesting. I think there’s certain boyfriends where you are trying to work stuff out, right? Like, you’re trying to heal certain stuff from your childhood and he was very much a lesson in that way. I’m not sure exactly what I was trying to heal in that instance, but it was … he was, you know. It was specific.

This is not the first time that Paltrow has spoken about her relationship with Affleck on SiriusXM. She was with Stern in 2015 and offered an explanation for her breakup with the 45-year-old director.

He’s super intelligent and really, really talented and he’s funny. But he wasn’t in a good place in his life to have a girlfriend.



Paltrow and Falchuk began dating in 2014 while on the set of Glee and have been together ever since. They were finally engaged in January 2018. She says Falchuck is not keen on having children and they both appear to be on the same page.
