Gwyneth Paltrow stopped by the Howard Stern show yesterday where she opened up about a number of subjects, including her relationships with the now very married ex-boyfriends Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck.
It is amazing how many celebrities are willing to talk to Howard Stern about just about everything. Also his interview skills have greatly improved and he no longer just asks famous women if they have ever had a lesbian experience or about when they lost their virginity.
Stern is always prepared for his interviews and knows what questions to ask.
The most interesting exchange between the two, by far, was about oral sex.
“You don’t have to always fight. Be a girl. Show him that he’s a man, and it’s a good thing energetically to do, ” Paltrow said about it.
When Stern said that when dating a famous woman “a lot of guys are insecure” Paltrow responded, “It depends on how many blow jobs you give them.”
Paltrow was very nice about Pitt saying, “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.”
Her relationship with Affleck, however, did not last as long. On him she said, “He was not in a good place in his life to have a girlfriend.”
Apparently Paltrow’s best friends are Cameron Diaz and Jay Z. The actress told Stern, “My best famous friend is Cameron Diaz and Jay and Beyonce. I met Jay first at a benefit in New York probably, I think I had had my daughter but not my son yet. And we all became friends. I normally don’t [become friends with famous people] but in that particular case, Chris and Jay, we all just kind of… They’re the greatest people. They’re funny and sweet and they’re self-aware and they’re really intelligent.”
She also discussed some urban myths, confirming that the Coldplay song “Fix You” was written about her. But no she did not steal her role in Shakespeare in Love from Winona Ryder. “I swear to God I did not, I’m raising my right hand on the Bible. I swear to God, ” she said.
On reports that she was bothered by her ex-husband Chris Martin’s relationship with Jennifer Lawrence: “Who says I don’t approve of Jennifer Lawrence? I respect [Chris] as the father of my children. It’s his decision. He wouldn’t be someone who isn’t great.”
