Gwyneth Paltrow: Brad Pitt was 'too good for me', Ben Affleck 'was not in a good place'

January 15, 2015 Ben Affleck, Brad Pitt, Gwyneth Paltrow, Howard Stern, Chris Martin

Gwyneth Paltrow has had relationship with some of the leading stars in Hollywood today and it does make for a rather glorified past. The actress recounted her relationships with Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show this week and it made for some great listening.

She was in her early 20s when she got engaged to Pitt in the 1997 after the two met on the sets of Seven and dated for 3 years. "I definitely fell in love with him," she recalled of the hunk. "He was so gorgeous and sweet. I mean, he was Brad Pitt!"

Not only her, her dad Bruce Paltrow was equally smitten by the actor. "My father was devastated," she admitted of their split.

"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. I didn't know what I was doing."

Paltrow also opened up about her another famous ex: Affleck. "He was not in a good place in his life to have a girlfriend," the Iron Man actress said of her on-and-off boyfriend from 1997 to 2000.

The actress admitted that when she was young, looks played an important role to her when she was dating.

"I think that when you're in your twenties, you can get swept up in good looks," she noted of being with her hunky exes. "When you're a kid, you tend to be more shallow and you're also immature, so you think that being with a good looking person validates yourself in some kind of way. It's not true."

The actress confirmed that since her 20s, she has matured as a person especially with her becoming a wife and mother to her children, whom she shares with estranged husband Chris Martin.
