The Goop founder - who has been in a relationship with the likes of Brad Pitt and Chris Martin in the past - admits that "part of the shine of acting wore off" because of what she faced.

Speaking in an upcoming interview on Quarantined with Bruce on SiriusXM's Radio Andy, she said: "I think that when you hit the bullseye, when you're 26-years-old and you're a metrics driven person who, frankly, doesn't love acting that much as it turns out. I was kinda like, 'Okay, I, I don't.' It wasn't like, I felt like this isn't worth doing.

"I sort of felt like, well, now who am I supposed to be? Like, what am I, what am I driving towards? Part of the shine of acting wore off, you know, being in such intense public scrutiny, being a kid who's like living every breakup on every headline, like being criticised for everything you do, say and wear, and also ... it's so transitory, you're always all over."

Meanwhile, Gwyneth previously insisted her relationship with her former spouse Chris - with whom she has Apple, 16, and Moses, 14 - is better now than it was when they were married.

She said: "I mean it's so interesting because in a way my divorce and my relationship with Chris now is better than our marriage was. So I do think that it can be done. I was really lucky because I had a doctor who kind of gave us a rubric for how to do it and luckily he’s writing a book and I think it’s coming out next year, thank goodness, because it really kind of lays out the tenants of how you do it and it’s a little bit unsurprising right? You have to have radical accountability. You have to know that every relationship is 50/50."No matter what you think, how you think you were wronged, or how bad you perceive the other person's actions, or whatever the case may be. If you are brave enough to take responsibility for your half and really look at your own garbage and your own trauma and how it’s presenting in the world and in your relationship then there really is somewhere to go and something to learn and something to heal. You are also holding the other person in this sphere of humanity. We are all part good and part bad, it’s not binary, we are all grey area."
