“Practically,” Paltrow wrote, responding to a fan’s question about whether she remains friends with her exes.

“I really believe in conscious decoupling,” the Shakespeare in Love star explained, referring to the term she popularized during her 2014 divorce from Chris Martin.

‘When you spend meaningful time with someone,’ she wrote, ‘it better turn into friendship. I don’t want to have hard feelings with anyone, ever (if I can help it).’

The lifestyle expert married the Coldplay frontman in 2003 and they have gone on to amicably co-parent their two children – 18-year-old daughter Apple and 16-year-old son Moses.

Before starting a family with hitmaker Viva La Vida, Paltrow embarked on a tumultuous romance with fellow Academy Award winner Ben Affleck, 50, in his heartthrob heyday in the late ’90s.

The pair first met in 1997 at a Hollywood dinner for the now infamous Miramax, which was Harvey Weinstein’s domain at the time.

Paltrow would later become a critical source to record and expose the tyrannical producer as a sexual predator, detailing his harassment of her when she was in a serious relationship with Brad Pitt, 59.

But Brad was before Ben and Gwyneth’s on-again off-again relationship with the Gone Girl star ended for good in 2000 after they co-starred in the romantic drama film Bounce.
