Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed she is still "friendly" with her ex-boyfriend Brad Pitt, saying she doesn't have "any really bad blood" with former partners.

The Hollywood stars dated in the 1990s, becoming briefly engaged before splitting in 1997.

Speaking to Harper's Bazaar magazine, Paltrow said she remains on good terms with men she has had relationships with, including Pitt.

She said: "One of them is still one of my best friends - one from high school, Tony Woods. And I'm friendly with Brad Pitt.

"I don't have any really bad blood."

The actress and Goop founder also opened up about her evolving relationship with her ex-husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, who she famously "consciously uncoupled" from in 2014.

Gwyneth Paltrow says she and Chris Martin "love each other"

She explained of her friendship with Martin, with whom she shares two children: "It's not like there’s a finish line: 'Oh, we consciously uncoupled; we’re done.' It’s a lifelong commitment to constantly reinvent your relationship with your ex, which you do presumably because you have children together.

"I don’t see a reason to do it if you don’t have children together. Some people do. But I think we put all the hard work in at the beginning. I would say very rarely is it difficult now. We’ve learned how to communicate with each other.

"We love each other. We laugh. We have the best of each other. It’s really nice. It makes you feel like you don’t have to lose."

Paltrow also enthused about Martin's new partner, Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Fanning.

"I love her," she said. "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 in to something like that."
