Once again, Gwyneth Paltrow decided to take the road to honesty, and opened up to her fans and followers regarding her most intimate thoughts about her life.

In an Instagram Q&A, the 49-year-old actress went on and answered some the audience's questions, and ended up addressing practically everything, from her favorite places to grab a bite, to her favorite song she sang on Glee. Of course, one topic had to surface, and that was her relationship with her ex-husband Chris Martin, whom she -consciously uncoupled' from when the pair announced their divorce back in 2014.

One of the fans came up with the question, and asked about what it was like to move on “after a divorce.” Gwyneth wholeheartedly agreed to answer this question, noting that the process is the best time for a little self-discovery. She said: “Oh, absolutely. It's a great opportunity to get ruthless with the truth of who you really are, what you want, and what you deserve.”

Also, another person went on to raise the question if the 'Shakespeare in Love' actress loved Coldplay frontman's longtime partner Dakota Johnson. To this, Gwyneth decided to simply reply: “Very much.” She also addressed the long-time rumor about whether she did or didn't have sex with Marvel-partner Robert Downey Jr. in the movies or after. The momma simply answered: “That's a no.”

Gwyneth Paltrow is now married to Brad Falchuk, and has previously addressed her love for their blended family. In fact, Paltrow and Johnson have been spotted together over the years; recently, they both attended a Gucci fashion show in Los Angeles. In 2020, Johnson joined Paltrow and Martin on a ski trip to Aspen, where she was seen hanging out with their two children, Apple and Moses Martin.

Even though Gwyneth is well aware of how everyone is shocked about her close bond with Dakota Johnson, she decided to open up about this to Harper's Bazaar in January 2020 and expressed how 'The Lost Daughter' actress brought so much to their lives:

“I love her. I can see how it would seem weird because it's sort of unconventional. But I think, in this case, just having passed through it iteratively, I just adore her. I always start to think of the ampersand sign – what else can you bring in, instead of being resistant to or being made insecure by? There's so much juice in leaning into something like that.”

It's definitely helpful to see Paltrow and Johnson so tight, since it seems like 'The Social Network' actress and Martin are in it for the long run. In fact, they sparked engagement rumors back in 2020, when Dakota was seen wearing an emerald ring on that finger.
