During a recent sit-down with her old pal Rob Lowe, Gwyneth Paltrow revealed
that Lowes wife, Sheryl Berkoff, taught her the art of oral sex long before the
makeup artist and the St. Elmos Fire actor tied the knot.
The Oscar-winning actress, 47, dropped the bomb on Lowes podcast, Literally
With Rob Lowe, sharing that she and Berkoff met when she was only 15 or 16
years old. Berkoff, an industry pro, was working as a makeup artist on one of
Paltrows mother Blythe Danners movies by Paltrows account, around 1988 or
1989 and the two became fast friends.
I met Sheryl and I was, like, immediately obsessed with her, Paltrow told
Lowe, 56, during their friendly catch-up. First of all, she was dating Keanu
Reeves, who was my celebrity crush. And she was so cool. She knew that I was
sneaking cigarettes, and she would come smoke with me behind the trailer.
And she taught me how to give a blow job, and you know, all the classic Sheryl
stuff, the star added. And I just worshipped her. I thought she was literally
the coolest chick of all time.
Berkoff eventually split from Reeves, began dating Lowe, and was the first to
introduce Paltrow to the 80s heartthrob. Lowe and Berkoff married in 1991 and
remain close to the Goop founder to this day.
Paltrow is currently married to Brad Falchuk and shares two children with her
ex-husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
