Healing Ben Affleck, Protective Brad Pitt: Gwyneth Paltrow Shared Intimate Details About Her Former Boyfriends
Gwyneth Paltrow shared her sweetest (and some of the bitterest) moments from her previous relationships. From “friendly” divorce with Chris Martin to undurable romantic affairs with Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck.
That is always painful to split up with the man you have been living together with for so long and even raised two beautiful children.
However, life is cruel, and for Gwyneth that is an unpleasant life moment she doesn’t fancy recollecting:
If there are kids involved, ya know, Chris and I had days, especially in the beginning, where it was really hard. Like, I didn't want to see him. I didn't want to eat dinner with him. And he didn't want to eat dinner with me.
Now, the couple have good relationship, and Gwyneth claimed they even see eye-to-eye to spend time together with children. With the common behavioral approach, Paltrow says their “friendly” divorce is something very few former couples can live through.
Gwyneth also opened up about her previous relationships, particularly with Ben Affleck and Brad Pitt. Ben was like a treatment for her. She needed him to cure some of her childhood issues; however, she couldn’t say which ones exactly:
He… I'm not sure exactly what I was trying to heal in that instance, but it was, he was, ya know, it was specific.
Talking about Brad, she couldn’t help mentioning his protective nature. During their three-year relationship, there was one moment Gwyneth is especially proud of. The unpleasant episode with Harvey Weinstein made 22-year-old Paltrow defenseless, and Pitt did the thing every true man was entitled to do:
We were at the opening of Hamlet on Broadway, and Harvey was there, and Brad Pitt, it was like the equivalent of throwing him against the wall. It was so fantastic because what he leveraged his fame and power to protect me, at a time when I didn't have fame or power yet. It was, it was fantastic. He's a good person.
Plans for the future
Today, Gwyneth is engaged to Brad Falchuk and shares her thoughts about marriage. Even though the couple don’t live together yet, Paltrow is sure the moment of truth will eventually happen this year.
When the long-awaited event finally happens, we will be there, Gwyneth, as you are the one who always cheers us with your adorable life moments.
