Gwyneth Paltrow admits she and her ex Brad Pitt went to the same hairdresser to match pixie cuts in the ’90s
Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed how she and her ex-boyfriend Brad Pitt ended up with matching haircuts.
The wellness expert, 48, looked back at some of her most iconic hairstyles while promoting her new GOOPGLOW Restore + Shine hair serum in a fun new video on Monday.
During their walk down memory lane, Paltrow’s assistant Kevin Keating pulled out a photo of her and her ex Pitt at the 1997 premiere of The Devil’s Own.
Short and Sweet: Gwyneth Paltrow shared some of the story behind her and ex Brad Pitt’s matching blonde pixie cuts in 1997
“Awww, matching haircuts! She cooed before revealing, “We went to the same stylist for the cut. [Celebrity hairstylist] Chris McMillan cut both of our hairs like this.
McMillian is well known for creating one of the most recreated styles of the ’90s: Jennifer Aniston’s’ Rachel’ cut rocked the early seasons of Friends.
(Aniston was married to Pitt from 2000 to 2005 and was also arraigned for sharing hairstyles with her ex.)
Keating wasn’t letting Paltrow get away with it yet, so he asked if they should call his ex to get his side of the story.
‘No! Why would we call him ?! ‘ she shouted, to which her assistant replied, “We’d love to talk about the look!”
The Oscar winner, however, dismissed the idea, saying, ‘No! No one asked me to get Brad Pitt involved.’
Backstory: ‘Awww, matching hairstyles!’ she cooed before revealing, “We went to the same stylist for the cut. [Celebrity hairstylist] Chris McMillan cut both of our hairs like this’
Certainly not! Keating wasn’t letting Paltrow get away with it yet, so he asked if they should call his ex to get his side of the story.
Keating had the last laugh though, joking, “He’s on my Grindr, let me do it like that.”
Paltrow and Pitt dated from 1994 to 1997 after a first meeting on the set of the crime thriller Se7en.
They were briefly engaged, but the actress said she broke up because she wasn’t ready to get married at the time.
“I think I was a kid and I wasn’t ready. He was too good for me, ”Paltrow told the Howard Stern Show in 2015.“ Honestly, I think I was too young and didn’t know what I was doing.

“I mean, I was 22 when we met and it took me up to 40 to get my head out of my ass. You can’t make a decision at 22.
The star married Coldplay rocker Chris Martin in 2003.
Their relationship took its course in 2016, when Paltrow announced that the couple were “consciously decoupled.”
They share their daughter Apple, 17, and their son Moses, 15 and still closely co-parents.
