Gwyneth Paltrow believes in soulmates & ‘I think that there can be more than one’

Gwyneth Paltrow got her “happily ever after.” She’s married to Brad Falchuk, one of Ryan Murphy’s producing partners. I think Gwyneth enjoys the fact that she’s not with a celebrity, but Falchuk still has a lot of power behind-the-scenes in the industry. Falchuk also doesn’t seem embarrassed to be with her, which was the problem in her first marriage. The way Falchuk and Paltrow talk about each other and talk about their marriage is really something too – she truly found her soulmate in Falchuk, he’s very sycophantic and publicly demonstrative towards her and she loves that. Anyway, Gwyneth gave an exclusive interview to Us Weekly to promote her “Gwyneth Paltrow x Copper Fit collection.” (The photos in this post are from the launch event this week.) Some highlights:

Soulmates: “I do believe in [soulmates]. I mean, I think that there can be more than one. But I do believe that there’s that person that can feel so right. And I think you do know. You know pretty early when it’s the right person.”

No withholding: As far as her marriage to Falchuck, 51, Paltrow told Us on Wednesday that the twosome work hard at keeping their relationship healthy by “not withholding” how they feel. “As women, I think sometimes we tend to swallow things, and I don’t think that’s healthy at all, and it leads to resentment,” she explained, noting that the lovebirds “really try to really articulate our feelings” when “something difficult” comes up.

She doesn’t always handle open communication well: “I sometimes handle it less perfectly than he does. But I think having that communication and also really wanting the same things and being aligned and wanting our marriage to deepen and grow is very helpful.”

Allocate space: Paltrow also shared that she and the Scream Queens director “put time” into their romance even — when it’s hard — because they recognize that “a lot of marriages struggle” when two people don’t allocate space for each other.

Why she’s collaborating with Copper Fit: “I like the idea of women seeking support when they exercise and are getting older and need support for joints,” she told Us. “I broke my knee, [and now] I use the Copper Fit sleeve all the time. Understanding that our bodies need support — that’s okay. That’s nothing to be ashamed of.”

A word about needing support during exercise… it’s true, and I’m at the age where I watch all of those Copper Fit commercials and think about whether I should get a “sleeve” for my bad knee. I actually bought some copper-lined compression socks for my walks and while the difference wasn’t crazy-significant, they did make my feet feel slightly better. I kind of don’t hate the fact that Gwyneth Paltrow is normalizing this kind of stuff? I’m sure she’s trying to “upmarket” it, which is a pain in the ass, but honestly… people swear by those copper-lined sleeves.

As for her talk about soulmates and what have you… I don’t believe in soulmates for ME, but I acknowledge that other people probably have soulmates, and I think Goop probably found hers in Brad Falchuk.

    Is she gearing up for another uncoupling?

    IDK why I suddenly remembered vogue writing this article about GPs photos being so bad they were unusable for the cover … And then showing the photos inside! 😅 (Yes they were bad).
    This was in the 1990s. I think just before Se7en was released? She was dating Brad Pitt and he’d been boosting her around town and the article mentioned all of it. I went off to Google but it looks like it never made it/got scrubbed from the internet. Anyone else remember?
    Sorry it’s so off topic. It’s just funny to think that there was a time when magazines would actually publish something like that.

      Brad also shamelessly tried to boost her career when he made People’s Sexiest Man Alive for the first time in 1995. He was dating Gwyn at the time and they tried to make him seem like the perfect boyfriend. He claimed Gwyneth was the greatest actress of al time! The casting director from Seven admitted that Brad pushed really, really hard for Paltrow to play his wife in the film. They weren’t interested in her, but finally relented because Brad was one of the stars of the film.

      The article also low key shaded Brad. They made it seem like Paltrow was so sophisticated and like he was the Hunchback, and they said she encouraged him to read more books! They also pointed out while he was in college, Gwyneth was still in elementary school. It’s an interesting read, and it might still be available online.

    I agree. And soulmates are more than just romantic ones. They are friendships and even relatives.

    Sounds like Falchuk is about to be dumped, I mean, “consciously uncoupled”

    I’m the same age as her and I just wish she would allow her face to age without the fillers. All it does is make her look like she had too much salt the day before. She may be incredibly irritating but I’ve always found her pretty regardless of personality and I don’t understand messing up your face when it’s already attractive.

    She is doing the oddest gigs now. She must be worried the goop train is coming to an end.

    Communication is absolutely without a doubt the most important thing in any relationship.

    I’ve been watching various short bits of stuff on youtube to calm me down from all the UK stuff going on, and one of them was GP doing a talk-through of her top fashion moments for Vogue TV. I don’t know enough about GP to have any other objection than one to her beliefs in mystical vaginal cleansing, which a top gynaecologist has said is both pointless and dangerous…however, I thought she came across really well during this video – chatty and self effacing. I was quite shocked. I was prepared for annoying. The woman makes a fortune out of selling crap, but for those few minutes she was very entertaining and normal about what she looked like and the clothes she used to wear. There have been other celebrities who have been just so serious about it. SJP was unbelievable – talked about her fashion shots in the third person as Carrie Bradshaw. It’s too weird to explain.

    I believe certainly you can have more than one soulmate in your romantic life, and it can be friends or relatives as well. Chris was I bet a soulmate as well when they first got together and he helped her through her father’s death. I don’t remember that earlier vogue or the people article but I remember in the early 2010s there was the gossip vanity fair was going to do an expose on why she was so hated and she told all her celebrity friends not to talk about her and it was quashed. Later we find out she’s been separated from Chris for a year or more and that’s what she was trying to hide.
