Exes Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt reunited for Goop, and while the interview is cashmere-related, it’s a delightful trip down memory lane for anyone who remembers their romance 25 years ago. And it’s clear the two look back fondly on their time together.
Gwyneth and Pitt met while filming in 1994 Se7fr. He proposed in 1996, but they broke up the following year. Pitt was very close to Gwyneth’s late father, actor Bruce Paltrow, throughout their relationship. In the interview published Tuesday, Pitt credits the Paltrows with introducing him to some of life’s luxuries.
“Bruce taught me about cashmere, what a nice bottle of red is – what a good bottle of wine means and how to experience it. And I really appreciate that. Spending time with you two has sanded some of my rough country edges,” the Oklahoma native shared. “It tickled my luxury gene that I always had somewhere in there but didn’t have access to.”
Although Pitt was promoting his new venture God’s True Cashmere, available on Goop of course, the interview quickly got personal.
“Since it’s almost Father’s Day, I’m going to ask you about Bruce. I’ll never forget when we were engaged and he came to me one day, his eyes full of tears, and he said “You know, I never really realized what they mean when they say you’re gaining a son. Like, I’m gaining a son. What impact has it had on you? Why did it loved you, even though we didn’t get married, unfortunately,” Gwyneth asked.
“Yeah, that’s right,” Pitt laughed. “Oh man, it all works out, doesn’t it?”
“Yeah, that’s right. I finally found the Brad I was meant to marry. It just took me 20 years,” Gwyneth joked. The Talented Mr. Ripley star married writer Brad Falchuk in 2018.
Pitt said “it’s lovely” to have the actress “as a friend now” and she agreed.
“And I love you,” Pitt added.
“I love you so much,” Gwyneth replied.
Pitt praised Bruce for his style of parenting, telling Gwyneth “he really fostered your voice, your independence.
“He paved the way for you to be who you are. And I think that’s so important for parenting, you know? So the child is free to find out who they are and what they like and what they love. “He doesn’t. You guys were so free in your conversations. And witty. And smart. And funny as shit,” Pitt recalled. “You were so funny together, tearing across the table, which was a rarity I hadn’t experienced much, and I loved it. The fun you had was contagious. You could see how much you adored.”
Apparently Gwyneth’s 18-year-old daughter Apple, who she shares with ex-husband Chris Martin, is “funny as Bruce.”
Gwyneth has already said how much Bruce adores Pitt.
“My dad was so devastated when we broke up,” she told Howard Stern in 2015. “My dad loved him like a son.” Gwyneth wouldn’t confirm she was the one who dumped Pitt, but said, “I was a kid.
“I was 22 when we met. It took me up to 40 years to get my head out of my ass. You can’t make that decision when you’re 22,” she recalled. “I wasn’t ready, and he was too good for me…I didn’t know what I was doing.”
