Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt were a very popular couple during their time. The two met when they were both very popular in Hollywood and were a very hot couple. They met on the set of a movie they filmed together and people obsessed over their every move. Their relationship occurred long before Brad's relationships with Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth's marriage to rocker Chris Martin. Brad and Gwyneth's relationship lasted for 3 years and they had a 6 month engagement.
The couple never made it to the altar because a young Gwyneth stated that she was not ready for that big of a commitment. Many reports say that Brad was crushed by the breakup. After breaking up, the couple never attempted a reconciliation and they rarely discuss that relationship. Both have moved on and found happiness in their current relationships. For their time, they were a cute couple and a great icon of young Hollywood romance.
