Gwyneth Paltrow was seen recently at an education event Think it Up in Sta. Monica, California. Paltrow looked young in her simple outfit. She wore a navy blue T-shirt with the logo of Think it Up paired with a black skater skirt and black ankle boots.

The Think it Up initiative seeks to improve education in America by motivating students in public schools to turn their passions into worthwhile projects. The event gained support from other Holywood celebrities like Seth Meyers, Terry Crews, Justin Bieber, Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Kacey Musgraves, Julie Chenand, Taylor Lautner and Jennifer Garner.

Garner caught up with Paltrow, and the two smiled together as they posed for the cameras. Both leading ladies are exes of Ben Affleck but there was no awkward moment between them. Paltrow dated Affleck back in 1997 after she broke up with Brad Pitt. Their relationship lasted three years. According to Paltrow, her parents knew that she and Affleck were not suited for each other.

“I think they appreciated how he’s super intelligent and he’s really talented and funny,” the actress said, remembering her parents’ fondness over Affleck. “They loved him, but they were okay with us not being together,” she added.

Paltrow and her husband, Chris Martin separated in March. They have two children: Apple who is now 9 years old and son Moses, 8.

Recently, Garner and her three children joined Affleck at Disney World for the actor’s birthday on August 16.

“This was all he wanted to do for his birthday, go to Disney World with his family and that included Jen,” a reliable source told Us Weekly, referring to the last time Garner and Affleck were seen together.

“They planned this and all went to Orlando together,” the source added.
