Gwyneth Paltrow reveals why Brad Pitt always looks like whoever he is dating and it's hilarious
When you're dating someone for a significant length of time, it's only natural that you begin to adopt one another's traits and habits. Maybe you share a lot of in-jokes that only make sense to the two of you, maybe you start to eat your steaks cooked the same way, or appreciate each other's taste in movies. Some people even end up dressing like their significant other, wearing the same brands and shopping at the same outlets. It can actually get pretty eerie actually.
It seems as though even celebrities aren't immune to this kind of behaviour. One person who is actually infamous for this sort of thing is Brad Pitt. It might be because he was married to Angelina Jolie for so long, but back when he was still a bachelor, Brad was actually quite well-known for looking and dressing identically to his girlfriend. If you don't believe me, then just check out some of the pictures of him below, where you can clearly see that there's a weird resemblance between him and his GFs.
One person who knows about this trait of Brad all too well is Gwyneth Paltrow. Most people know that the two of them played a married couple in the David Fincher serial killer thriller Se7en, (where she famously played a head in a box), but a lot of people have also totally forgotten that she actually dated Brad Pitt in real life.
As you can see, Brad had a very similar bleached blonde haircut and similar fashion sense. This week, when someone pointed this out to Gwyneth on Twitter, she responded: "Or we like to look like him, let’s face it." Hmm, so maybe Brad's girlfriends have actually been copying his style all along. Who could have guessed?
It seems like Paltrow has been more and more open about praising Brad lately. In a recent interview on the Howard Stern Show, she stated that Brad had defended her from disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein at the opening of Hamlet on Broadway while the two were dating. Gwyneth stated: "It was like the equivalent of throwing him against the wall, you know, energetically ... It was so fantastic because what he did was, he leveraged his fame and power to protect me, at a time when I didn't have fame or power yet. It was, it was fantastic. He's a good person. And Harvey was never inappropriate with me again."
Gwyneth also had a lot of kind words for her ex-husband Chris Martin, stating: "I think Chris and I are lucky because we really agree fundamentally how to raise the children. We have similar principles and values." It's really inspiring to see someone who has good relationships with their exes: maybe we should all take a leaf out of Gwyneth's book and learn to appreciate some of the people we used to date in the past, and forgive them if they've done us wrong.
