When Gwyneth Paltrow was dating Brad Pitt during the 90s, their fans went berserk. Both were young, talented and good looking actors who made for a dreamy couple. However, everyone was shocked when they split.
To take you back, the two met in 1995 during the shooting of the film, Se7en. Brad Pitt was already a heartthrob in the Hollywood industry. On the other hand, Gwyneth Paltrow was making her mark with her performances. At that time, the couple was obsessed with each other. They would spend a lot of time together.
Sadly, the two broke up in 1997. Rumours stated they had a toxic split as Gwyneth cheated on Brad Pitt with John Hannah. The Avengers: Endgame actress later took the entire blame of split on herself. In a 2003 interview with ABC News, Paltrow said, “I’m so lucky that I spent time with Brad, somebody who was such a good person! Especially when I was, like, such a mess.”
“My kind of internal stuff really tripped up that whole relationship. And I felt really responsible, and also like I was the architect of my own misery. I just made a big mess out of it I was very upset for a long, long time,” added Gwyneth Paltrow.
That’s not it. In an interview with US Weekly, she even said that Brad Pitt was too good for her. The actress had said, “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.”
Post their break-up, Brad Pitt found love in Jennifer Aniston again. They got married in 2000. Sadly, their marriage ended in 2005.
