In a new Variety interview Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that her husband referenced one of her most famous films, Shakespeare in Love, during the couple's wedding vows.

“I hope this isn’t too personal, but in my husband’s wedding vows, he actually said it’s no coincidence that I played this muse,” she said, about her character, Viola, in the 1998 film that earned Paltrow a Best Actress Oscar. “Because that’s who I am to him, and his perception is that’s who I am in real life. It was really sweet.”

The couple tied the knot last September in their Hamptons home surrounded by 70 of their closest family and friends, including stars such as Cameron Diaz and Robert Downey Jr. Before making their trip down the aisle, the two joined Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld at their home in East Hampton for pre-wedding celebrations. For the ceremony, the two said their I do's in a tent in their yard, which was filled with lush greenery and romantic lanterns.

"We feel incredibly lucky to have come together at this juncture in our lives when our collective successes and failures can serve as building blocks for a healthy and happy relationship," Paltrow said in a statement at the time of their nuptials.

“Personally, at midlife, I have tried to accept how complex romantic love can be,” she continued. “I have decided to give it a go again, not only because I believe I have found the man I was meant to be with, but because I have accepted the soul-stretching, pattern-breaking opportunities that (terrifyingly) are made possible by intimacy."

Last week, the television director took to Instagram to gush over his wife. "Holy f*ck am I in love with you. Happy Valentine’s Day @gwynethpaltrow," he wrote next to a selfie of the couple.

Paltrow also shared a shot for the romantic holiday, writing "Be mine @bradfalchuk ❤️" next to a sunset selfie.
