Gwyneth Paltrow knows we’re thirsty for details on her sex and love life, and as always, she’s dishin’ ‘em out!
In a February cover piece for Harper’s Bazaar, the Goop founder and Oscar winner jokes that since moving in with her husband Brad Falchuk a year after they married, their “sex life is over.”
The 47-year-old says friends told her not to move in with him, saying that leaving apart kept the magic: “I thought it was really interesting how resonant that was for people. One of my best friends was like, ‘That is my dream. Don’t ever move in.'”
She continued, “I think it certainly helps with preserving mystery and also preserving the idea that this person has their own life. So this is something I’m trying to remain aware of now as we merge together.”
Paltrow, who split from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin in 2014, but remains best friends with him, also weighed in on his current partner, Dakota Johnson.
She said: “I love her. I can see how it would seem weird because it’s sort of unconventional. But I think, in this case, just having passed through it iteratively, I just adore her.”
Paltrow says it’s all about inclusion in her world: “I always start to think of the ampersand sign — what else can you bring in, instead of being resistant to or being made insecure by? There’s so much juice in leaning in to something like that.”
Speaking of exes, Paltrow is also on excellent terms with Brad Pitt, from whom she split in 1997.
Paltrow dishes: “I’m friendly with Brad Pitt. I don’t have any really bad blood.”
