Gwyneth Paltrow Dating History: In Los Angeles, California, Gwyneth Kate Paltrow was born on September 27, 1972. Her parents are Tony Award-winning actress Blythe Danner and late TV producer/director Bruce Paltrow. Jacob Paltrow, her younger brother, is three years her junior. When Gwyneth was 11 years old, the family relocated from Los Angeles to New York City, but they eventually moved back to California. Paltrow was up celebrating both Jewish and Christian holidays because her mother is from a Christian family and her father is Jewish.
It was only natural for Gwyneth to follow in her parents’ footsteps and become a performer herself given how highly involved her parents were in the entertainment business. Her father was the director of the 1989 television film “High,” which featured her in the lead role. She frequently performed on stage in Massachusetts, where her mother spent many years acting in summer stock productions.
Gwyneth Paltrow was once linked to ‘Felicity’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star Scott Speedman
Paltrow has had relationships with a few well-known people throughout the course of her nearly three-decade Hollywood career. But most of these were just rumours. She was briefly linked to Scott Speedman, who starred in Felicity and currently portrays Dr. Nick Marsh on Grey’s Anatomy, in 1999.

Pitt and Paltrow’s romance was very public and rapidly became serious. Pitt proposed to her in 1996, referring to her as his “angel” and “the joy of my life” in his speech of winning at the Golden Globes. However, the couple broke off their engagement just seven months after becoming engaged.
“I undeniably developed feelings for him. He was extremely charming and attractive. I mean, he was Brad Pitt!,” Paltrow exclaimed in 2015 on Howard Stern’s Sirius/XM programme. “When we parted ways, my father was crushed. I was like a child when we first met; I was 22. I didn’t get my head out of my ass till I was forty. You are not old enough to make that choice at the age of 22. He was too good for me, and I wasn’t ready for him.
