During a recent "Call Her Daddy" podcast appearance, Paltrow, 50, weighed in on her previous boyfriends, Ben Affleck and Brad Pitt's bedroom abilities. The "Seven" actress started dating Pitt in 1994 after they both starred in the movie, even going on to become engaged but ending things in 1997.

She began dating Affleck shortly after calling off her relationship with Pitt, but her relationship with the "Gone Girl" actor also hit the rocks in 2000.

In her appearance on the podcast, Paltrow told the host Alex Cooper that both men were "good kissers." She was then quizzed by the host on who was better in bed, to which she replied, "Brad was like the sort of major chemistry, love of your life, kind of, at the time, and then Ben was, like, technically excellent."

"Lmaaoo ily Apple, thanks for supporting the show and your mom on this ep," the caption read.

Paltrow shared that she wasn't ready for her daughter to learn about sex education at age 11.

"I remember my kids both went to this fantastic elementary school here in Los Angeles after we moved back from London, and they taught them sex-ed in the sixth grade. I was not prepared with the information they came home with," she said, per Insider.

Paltrow added, "I will never forget Apple and her best friend Emily sitting at our kitchen banquet in shock, the color drained from their face. They taught them everything. Everything. Anything you're thinking, they taught the 11, 12-year-olds. They're like, 'Do people do this?'"

In her chat with Cooper on the "Call Her Daddy" podcast, Paltrow shared that she felt an enormous energy change moments after winning the 1999 Oscar that spiraled into an identity crisis for her, per Variety.

"Once I won the Oscar, it put me into an identity crisis because if you win the biggest prize, what are you supposed to do? And where are you supposed to go?" she said. 

"It was hard the amount of attention you receive on a night like that and the weeks following; it's so disorienting. And frankly, really unhealthy. I was like, 'This is crazy. I don't know what to do; I don't know which way is up.' It was a lot.'"

The actress recalled her acceptance speech, during which she cried while thanking her parents, claiming that the English media hounded her for it; unknowingly to them, her dad was battling with cancer at the time.

"I felt a real pivot on that night because I felt like everybody was rooting for me in a way up until that moment. And then, when I won, it was too much, and I could feel a real turn," she said.

The actress continued, "And, you know, I was 26. I cried, and people were so mean that I just thought, 'Wow this big energy shift is happening. I think I'm going to have to learn to be less openhearted and much more protective of myself and filter people out better.'"

She added, "I remember working in England… and I remember the British press being so horrible because I cried. And they didn't necessarily know that my father was dying of cancer."
