Jennifer Lopez’s Take On Gwyneth Paltrow’s Work

Before Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt dated Gwyneth Paltrow from 1994 to 1997. During that time, Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow were engaged. Unfortunately, the pair’s relationship didn’t last long. However, they were a powerful couple who attracted many with their charm. We can get the idea of their fame from famous pop singer Jennifer Lopez’s comment about the couple. In Movieline’s interview, the singer was asked what she thinks about the actress. She responded:

“Tell me what she’s been in? I swear to God, I don’t remember anything she was in. “She added, “Some people get hot by association. I heard more about her and Brad Pitt than I ever heard about her work.”

Jennifer was under the impression that Gwyneth was more popular because of her relationship rather than her work.

Like, I’m gaining a son.’ What impact did he have on you? Why did you love him, even though we didn’t get married, unfortunately,”

Brad replied:

‘Right,’ Pitt replied with a laugh. ‘Oh man, everything works out, doesn’t it?

When she was asked about the reason for their breakup, she said:

‘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.’
