For the first time in a decade, Gwyneth Paltrow is back on the market.
In a joint letter posted to her lifestyle site GOOP, Paltrow and husband Chris Martin announced a "conscious uncoupling", saying that "with hearts full of sadness ... we have decided to separate."
While Paltrow endures what she calls a "difficult time," soon the day will arrive when the Shakespeare in Love Academy Award-winner decides she's ready to begin dating again. And when that day comes, she's going to need some advice. Luckily, she's got the best source there is – her own filmography.
In movies both romantic (Bounce) and ... otherwise (Se7en), Paltrow's characters have learned valuable lessons about lust, trust and the nature of love. Below, a selection of wisdom from the Book of Paltrow.

Kumar Pallana, an Indian character actor with small parts in movies such as The Terminal and The Royal Tennenbaums, died suddenly Oct. 10 at the home he shared with his son in Oakland, Calif. He was 94.
"He lived life to the fullest," said his daughter Sandhya Pallana of Dallas, who confirmed the death to the Associated Press. "It was really wonderful how well he was received and how well he was liked and that people appreciated his unique and creative style."
Pallana was a yoga instructor living in Dallas in the mid-1990s when he met Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson, who were working on their breakout movie Bottle Rocket, the Los Angeles Times reported. They cast Pallana as a bumbling safe cracker.
His thick accent and diminutive stature combined to help him steal scenes and earned him parts in more films, including three more directed by Anderson and one by Steven Spielberg.
