Gwyneth Paltrow may have consciously ended her relationship with her ex-husband Chris Martin, but the actress knows she didn’t necessarily handle her other breakups so well. In an interview, the actress admits she messed up so many relationships including the one with Brad Pitt.

”I think that when you’re in your twenties, you can get swept up in [good looks]. When you’re a kid, you tend to be more shallow and you’re also immature, so you think that being with a good-looking person validates yourself in some kind of way. It’s not true.”

This isn’t the first time Gwyneth Paltrow has talked about making mistakes during her breakup with Brad Pitt. Back in 2015, she told Howard Stern that she was such a kid and she was just 22 when they met. According to Paltrow, she was immature for handling a serious relationship, which is why it didn’t last too long.
