Gwyneth Paltrow Says She Has Zero Plans Of Ever Getting Back Together With Chris Martin

Past the point of no return.

For Gwyneth Paltrow, she’s never been shy to answer questions or open up about her ex-husband Chris Martin. And now, she’s addressed whether she has any plans to rekindle their relationship.

Commenting on an Instagram post by The Drew Barrymore Show, the post in question included a clip of Barrymore herself asking her audience whether one would entertain the idea of dating an ex. 

“None of my exes are interested and there’s nothing there,” Barrymore said. “They’re like bird carcasses. All the relationships in my past are like, there’s nothing left, there’s nothing to revisit… It’s like vultures flying over and they’re like ‘Nothing to eat here! Move along boys!”

And in the post’s caption, it asks followers the ultimate relationship question: “Would you ever get back together with an ex?”

While it prompted endless commenters sharing whether they would or would not, it also saw the Goop founder share her thoughts on the question, simply stating “I’m good”.

Thanks to Instagram account Comments By Celebs, her answer has been immortalised for the rest of time.

Currently, Paltrow is married to writer and producer Brad Falchuk. But of course, the actress boasts a lineup of some pretty A-list ex-partners. Some of her past loves include Brad Pitt, who she was engaged to in 1996; Ben Affleck, who she dated from 1997 to 2000; and most notably, Chris Martin, whom she married and “consciously uncoupled” in 2014.

But while Paltrow has no plans on reigniting any kind of romance with Martin, the pair are on great terms. Martin and Paltrow co-parent their two children, 17-year-old Apple and 16-year-old Moses, along with Martin’s longterm girlfriend actress, Dakota Johnson.

In fact, Paltrow not only doesn’t want to be with Martin, but she’s even referred to him as her “brother”.

“I mean, it’s funny. He was over here yesterday,” she said on Shop Today With Jill Martin. “And [Apple] came through, and she’s like, you know, she’s taller than me now.”

“[Chris and I] just, like, looked at each other. We were like, ‘How did this go by so quickly?’ He’s like my brother. You know, he’s my family.”

“I love him,” she continued, per Today. “And I’m so grateful to him for giving me these kids. It worked out well…. You know, it really did, I have to say.”
