Gwyneth Paltrow’s friend ‘didn’t like’ Ben Affleck

New York, July 22 (IANS) Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed her longtime friend Mario Batali “didn’t like” her former boyfriend and actor Ben Affleck.

The 43-year-old actress said Batali wasn’t keen on the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” actor, who she dated in 2000, but did approve of actor Brad Pitt, who she was in a relationship with from 1994 to 1997 and got engaged to, reports

Speaking at a dinner event at Batali’s restaurant La Sirena here, Paltrow told the crowd: “He was just teasing me about every boyfriend I brought to Babbo (Batali’s restaurant) over the years.

“He liked Brad Pitt, if you want to know. Didn’t like Ben Affleck that much,” she added.

Paltrow and Affleck met at a party hosted by studio executive Harvey Weinstein.

Last year, she admitted the star “wasn’t in a good place” to date someone when they briefly went out.

“He is super intelligent and really, really talented and he is funny. But he wasn’t in a good place in his life to have a girlfriend,” Paltrow said.

Paltrow has two children, Apple, 12, and 10-year-old Moses, with ex-husband Chris Martin who she was married to for 13 years until “consciously uncoupling”.
