Gwyneth Paltrow has reflected on her past high-profile relationships before going on to admit that she feels like she's experienced her first real adult relationship with fiancé Brad Falchuk. The 45-year-old was previously married to Coldplay musician Chris Martin, engaged to Brad Pitt and dated Ben Affleck. Speaking with relationship expert Esther Perel for Sunday Times' Style magazine, the 45-year-old revealed she has finally found happiness in her love life. "If you look at life like a pie chart, the romantic slice is where all the shit comes out," she shared. "I've always felt that I'm a good friend, mother, daughter, sister, boss, co-worker - but that I was most broken in that romantic slice."

She continued: "I had two typical types of relationships: one where I was constantly chasing and trying to win someone over, and one where I was put off by the person's capacity for the relationship - and those relationships were very short-lived."

"Personally, at midlife, I have tried to accept how complex romantic love can be," the Oscar-winning actress said. "I have decided to give it a go again, not only because I believe I have found the man I was meant to be with, but because I have accepted the soul-stretching, pattern-breaking opportunities that (terrifyingly) are made possible by intimacy."
