Gwyneth Paltrow has supposedly been a “total rock” to ex-boyfriend Ben Affleck as he struggles through his split from Jennifer Garner.

The 42-year-old actor and estranged wife Jennifer Garner confirmed their split with a heartfelt statement last month after ten years of marriage.

And as Ben struggles to cope with the breakdown of his relationship, he has apparently turned to Gwyneth, who he dated on and off from 1997 to 2000, for some tips on how she handled her split from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

The actress and her ex spouse famously announced the breakdown of their marriage by referring to it as a “conscious uncoupling” – which is something Ben is apparently keen to explore.

“Gwyneth is getting a real kick out of helping friends who are going through a divorce, especially when kids are involved,” a source told America’s OK! Magazine.

Gwyneth has allegedly become something of Hollywood’s go-to person for divorce advice.

The actress and her former spouse Chris have also apparently been helping Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy as they moved forward with their lives following their split.

“They figure it’s their duty to ‘pay it forward’ since the way they handled their own split has worked so well,” the insider noted.

In addition to acting, Gwyneth has made a name for herself with her lifestyle business Goop. And she is now said to be considering founding a new company centred around her divorce advice for star couples.

It was previously reported that Ben and Jennifer were keen to model their own split on Gwyneth and Chris’.

“They feel like they have to be mature adults for their children’s sake and that they will figure out the healthiest way to co-parent,” a source told Us Weekly magazine. “They want the kids lives to stay the same and to not have to change just because they aren’t going to be married anymore."
