Gwnyeth Paltrow has opened up on her past relationships, including those with Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck, in a new radio interview, where she also revealed that her use of the phrase "conscious uncoupling" in 2014 was a mistake. The 42-year-old actress used the term in 2014 in an official statement confirming a split from her husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
"I made a mistake," she said.
"I didn't give it context. But it is a goofy term", she admitted to radio DJ Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show on Wednesday.

Gwyneth also spoke of the nearly three years she spent with 51-year-old Brad Pitt -the pair met on the set of Se7en - and Gwyneth admitted: "I definitely fell in love with him.
"He was so gorgeous and sweet. I mean, he was Brad Pitt!", she added, before revealing that her parents were also heartbroken when the pair split.
"My father was devastated."
She continued: "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."
