But it seems that both parties have moved on, with Chris keeping away from the public eye and Gwyneth reportedly dating Glee co-founder Brad Falchuk.

The Oscar-winning actress has appeared in five episodes of the hit TV series, playing the role of substitute teacher Holly Holiday.
According to US Weekly, what started off as a professional relationship may have blossomed into something more — the duo were reportedly spotted out on a dinner date at East Borough in Los Angeles.
A source who was at the Los Angeles restaurant reports that the encounter “was flirty," though neither party has confirmed that they are a couple.
Brad, who split with his wife of 10 years in 2013, is a newly-single bachelor. While Gwyneth has Apple, 10, and Moses, 8, the Glee co-founder has two children of his own.
