Here's Why Gwyneth Paltrow and Ben Affleck Never Got Married

The GOOP mogul bared her soul to Howard Stern.

Gwyneth Paltrow dated Ben Affleck on and off from 1997 to 2000, and then she went on to date Luke Wilson briefly and then marry Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and Ben went on to briefly form "Bennifer" with Jennifer Lopez and then marry Jennifer Garner. The GOOP mogul had many relationships, but when she appeared on the Howard Stern Show this week, he turned back the clock to ask about Ben.

Her response seemed both very honest — and quite withering.

“It’s interesting. I think there’s certain boyfriends where you are trying to work stuff out, right? Like, you’re trying to heal certain stuff from your childhood and he was very much a lesson in that way,” she told Howard. Ouch!

She went on to admit, “[He] was not in a good place in his life to have a girlfriend." She didn't go as far as to say that his troubles were with alcohol, but she didn't paint a picture of perfect health in saying that.

Gwyneth is now happily engaged to TV exec Brad Falcuk, who seems to get along very well with her ex-husband.
