Gwyneth, 49, shared: ‘Okay, since it’s almost Father’s Day, I’m going to ask you about Bruce. I’ll never forget when we were engaged and he came to me one day, his eyes full of tears, and he said, “You know, I never really realized what they mean when they say you’re gaining a son. Like, I’m gaining a son.”

She then asked Brad: ‘What impact did he have on you? Why did you love him, even though we didn’t get married, unfortunately.’

Brad – who went on to marry Jennifer Aniston and then Angelina Jolie – responded: ‘Yeah, right. [Laughs.] Oh man, everything works out, doesn’t it?’

Gwyneth then referred to her now husband Brad Falchuk, adding: ‘Yes, it does. I finally found the Brad I was supposed to marry. It just took me 20 years.’

‘And it’s lovely to have you as a friend now,’ Brad said, adding: ‘And I do love you.’

Gwyneth responded: ‘love you so much.’

Brad revealed how Bruce – a film director and producer – had a significant influence on him as a father, saying: One of the many things I loved about Bruce – because he did have a profound effect on me and is someone I still think about – was he really fostered your voice, your independence.’ 

‘He carved the way for you guys to be who you are. And I think that’s so important to parenting, you know? So the child is free to find out who they are and what they love and what they don’.’

Reminiscing over his relationship with Gwyneth and her father, Brad also revealed: ‘We were always going to get his opinion, but there was a fairness to it that I really appreciated. I think that struck a chord with me.’ 

When asked by Gwyneth if Brad felt ‘parental energy from him’ he responded: One hundred percent. I felt that same kind of guidance that you would get from a coach or a mentor.’ 

Gwyneth added: Me too. I mean, he was my father, but he was very much a mentor. He loved being that role for the people that he really loved, and you were definitely one of them.’
