Gwyneth Paltrow has offered to help Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie through their reportedly acrimonious split, according to RadarOnline.
The actress has apparently reached out to Brad, in a bid to help the pair ‘consciously uncouple’, a source claims.
“She’s egotistical enough to think he’ll want her advice about consciously uncoupling from Angelina,” the insider said.
Gwyneth (44), who dated Brad (52) from 1994 until 1997- after the pair met on the set of their 1997 thriller Seven - is said to have remained friendly with the actor after their relationship ended.
The source said Gwyneth’s offer to help the couple was “a goodwill gesture on her part” although it’s unlikely Brad will take her up on it.
“That’s the last thing Brad’s thinking about right now, of course. But Gwyneth is convinced she can help and has even offered to act as an unofficial mediator for him and Angie.”
While the couple’s marriage of two years ended last month – the A-list pair had spent more than a decade with each other and had six children together: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
Although custody of the children is currently undecided, USWeekly reports Angelina is living with all six kids in a Malibu mansion. The publication has also reported Brad is “frustrated” with the situation.
“Brad just wants to work through everything and get to a place where there can be some certainty about what’s going on,” a source told the magazine. “The kids are the only thing he’s hanging on to.”
