The now-divorcées are finding comfort in the arms of one another after both stars struggled through failed marriages.
An insider reveals Paltrow’s “still extremely fond of Brad, and he’s grateful to have her in his corner.”
As fans know, Paltrow, 45, and Pitt, 54, dated for three years after they met on the set of their 1995 thriller Seven.
The two got engaged then called it quits because she decided she wasn’t ready for marriage.
Fast forward 20 years and Pitt has come back into her life following his messy split from Angelina Jolie, 42.
While fans may be eager to see the ex-lovebirds back together romantically, the source insists that’s not the case.
“Brad checks in with Gwyneth a lot for advice about new age healing methods, diet and exercise tips and she picks his brain about business moves and architecture.
And now that Angelina’s off the scene Brad’s been able to reconnect with a lot of his old friends again, and Gwyneth is one of them, spills the source.
While the source maintains they’re “just friends,” perhaps there’s still hope for a rekindled romance between the two.
Paltrow opened up about her famous ex during an appearance on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM show in January 2015.
“I definitely fell in love with him,” she told Stern. “He was so gorgeous, and sweet — I mean, he was Brad Pitt, you know?”
