Paltrow felt `strange` with ex-flames Pitt, Affleck
London: Gwyneth Paltrow has said she felt "strange" living her life in the spotlight while romancing actors Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck.
The Oscar-winning actress - who has two children, six-year-old Apple and Moses, four, with her Coldplay frontman husband Chris Martin - insisted her high-profile relationships with the two Hollywood actors were surreal, reported E! online.
The `Shakespeare In Love` star, who is rarely photographed with her husband and tries to keep her family life out of the public spotlight, said, "It was strange to be part of a public couple."
Although the 38-year-old actress` parents were both involved in the movie industry - her mother Blythe Danner is an actress and late father Bruce Paltrow was a director - Gwyneth revealed claims she didn`t live a privileged life growing up.
"I would say, `Dad, I can`t go out to dinner, I have no money.` And he would say, `You`re welcome to come over here and eat at our house anytime, but I`m not giving you money for your social life`," she said.
