Chris Martin freaked out when Gwyneth wore jewelry given to her by Brad Pitt

Chris Martin has been a touchy, twitchy, nervous bastard for years, especially when it comes to discussing his wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, or Gwyneth‘s most famous ex, Brad Pitt. Oddly (and hilariously), Chris never gets twitchy about Gwyneth’s other famous ex, Ben Affleck. Chris might not even know Gwyneth dated Ben Affleck, truly. Anyway, in 2008, Chris spoke about his feelings towards Brad Pitt in a Rolling Stone interview, saying, “You’ve got to be hungry… If your wife went out with Brad Pitt, you’d want to prove yourself, you know what I mean?” Later that year, Chris punched an interviewer (and called the dude a C-U-Next-Tuesday) for mentioning Gwyneth’s engagement to Brad. As of the past few years, Chris has managed to avoid conversations about Brad, although he still gets super-twitchy when asked about Gwyneth and his marriage in general.

Which makes this story in the Enquirer oddly believable. I’m not saying it’s the gospel or anything, just that I could see something like this happening and I could see Chris reacting this way:

If you’re succumbing to the sneaky suspicion that Gwyneth Paltrow’s beautiful but dumb, ponder this: rocker hubby Chris Martin’s eyes popped when he spotted an obviously pricey diamond bracelet on Gwyneth’s wrist – and when he quizzed her, thick-as-a-brick-but-gorgeous Gwyn did what just about no other woman on earth would have done – admitted that long-ago lover Brad Pitt gifted her with the beautiful bauble during their engagement 15 years ago.

Instantly, Chris jealously blew his stack as goofy Gwyneth abruptly emerged from her coma, promising to sell Pitt’s piece and donate the dough to charity!

[From The Enquirer, print edition]

Do you think Gwyneth still has (and wears) gifts from her former lovers? I bet she still has a lot of that stuff (the really nice stuff, not the cheap peasant crap), and I could see her wearing it too. But here’s a question: Chris and Gwyneth have been together for what? Nearly a decade? And Chris is just now noticing a piece of jewelry Gwyneth has had all of this time? That sounds reasonable too – he doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who notices stuff like that. And maybe Gwyneth just wore the bracelet to piss off Chris. Because that’s the way she rolls.

    Does anyone else notice that Brad always changes his look to “match” whoever he is with at the time?
    Shaggy unkempt hair with Juliette Lewis, matching hairstyle and color with Gwenyth, matching preppy cut and color with Jen Aniston, long hair and rough beard with the less uptight looking Angie….
    He is one strange dude. Like the desperate woman who suddenly “likes” the same sport as her current boyfriend.

    • lisa says:

      This is yet another thing said about Brad that is NOT TRUE. Gwenny said in an interview that Brad go that hair cut, she liked it and had hers done the same way.

      I know people like you like to reduce Brad to some cardboard whatever.

      But Brad is an accomplished and talented man. In front of the camera and behind. HE has an Iconic career that he himself earned was not given to him because of who his parent were.

      Brad changes his look for all his films. But keep your silly observations going.

      doesn’t make them correct.

      • atlantapug says:

        This doesn’t explain away all the other changes to his “look” that just coincidentally make him match his current slam piece.

      • Spugz says:

        I thought she had that cut for sliding doors?

      • Tapioca says:

        No, he got a career off his looks, which IS down to his parents. 🙂

        There’s a reason they didn’t cast Steve Buscemi in Thelma & Louise!

      • mln76 says:

        Oh please tapioca if his career was based only on his looks and no talent he’d have Richard Grieco’s career not on the road to his 3rd Oscar nomination.

      • Vesper says:

        Actually, I distinctly remember reading an interview by Paltrow in a non gossip magazine that was given a few years after the breakup and she said something to the effect of, where do u think he got the idea to wear his hair like that?

        Still a Brad fan. Love his work.

      • 7 Years in Tibet Hair says:

        Exactly- goopy totally copied Brad. Brad had that hair color/style to play a REAL PERSON (Heinrich Herrer, who became friends with the young Dalai Lama- the Dalai Lama would call him “yellow hair”)in the movie Seven Years in Tibet. It is a beautiful movie and I think the reason he is banned (at least for the foreseeable future)from China.

    • truthSF says:

      I don’t know pug, I’ve seen Brad sport 8 different looks since he’s been with Jolie. And the latest look was for his last movie he just finished, World War Z.

      But that picture of him and Gwen always cracks me up, they look like two lesbians, lol.

    • Asli says:

      LOL, Tapioca! Steve B. is rather unfortunate looking, but he’s an amazing actor.

    • Leticia says:


    • lucy2 says:

      I’ve seen several photo examples of that very thing, and yes, does seem to be a pattern of his.

    • skuddles says:

      Actually, I clearly recall when Pitt was with JA, think it might have been a bit later in the relationship, and he had long hair and a wild, scraggly beard. Apparently JA bitched about it but he seemed content with his hairy, homeless look.

      • Mari says:

        That is so true, the ignorar longest beard he had, was during JA time, but Manu just want to remember clean cu tbrad at Guat. Time. With Jolie he has had yelmos hair, black hair, Beard no beard, long and short hair, etc.
        About the pic with gwynnie, she had longer hair beforeand he had short blond huir longer at the front…guess who cut her hair? She did , so she copies him, or not?

    • Thiagra says:

      THANK YOU for noticing. No one else I know personally has noticed this and it’s obvious. Silly, too.

    • Not So Fast says:

      That’s not true. Pitt got his hair cut and dyed blond for Seven Years in Tibet because that’s what the real-life guy he was playing (Heinrich Harrer) looked like. Paltrow liked the haircut but was scared spitless to cut off her long blond hair. Pitt went with her to his longtime hair stylist at the time (Chris McMillan – the same guy who does Aniston’s hair), and McMillan cut Paltrow’s hair to match Pitt’s. Pitt had to sit with Paltrow and hold her hand while McMillan cut and dyed her hair to match his because she’d never had her hair that short and was nervous. (Ironically Palrow was cheating on Pitt at the time and he didn’t have clue.) Years later when Pitt was dating Aniston Chris McMillan used to brag that he “does all of Brad’s women’s hair”. Pitt was friends with McMillan for a long time (since his Juliette Lewis days) and McMillan was the one who dyed Pitt’s hair platinum blond in 2005 for the Mr. & Mrs. Smith premiere. Aniston found out McMillan was still friends with Pitt and had a conniption fit to the point where Pitt severed his friendship with McMillan so McMillan didn’t have to choose sides. And what does McMillan get for his trouble? Aniston dogging the “Rachel” haircut as being “the ugliest haircut ever.” With friends like that he doesn’t need enemies.

  2. DomCoug says:

    omg Chrissy Martin is a dick

  3. Gwen says:

    Sometimes I almost feel sorry for the Goop, having to be married to such a man. Then again I’m a peasant, what would I know about good relationships..

    I think he would only have reason to be worried if she wore jewelry from JewelMint, ha ha 😀

  4. Nibbi says:

    k when he was dating Goop he was at peak amazing hotness- i mean damn, look at that- but they as a couple just look creepy annoying and matchy-matchy. i mean they’ve both got that same lantern jaw (which works better on him, really) but the matching color and coif is just barf.

  5. DarkEmpress says:

    Chris Martin is like a mongoose to me. I just dont see how he has such weird definitions of boundaries being a celebrity and marrying a celebrity. If he were just the average nice and scrawny guy, ok fine. But his blow ups, make him look mentally retarded. I think he really must think GOOP is all that and is actually really afraid of losing her. Or he is just constantly afraid, for no real reason.

  6. RocketMerry says:

    Poor Chris. I wonder why he’s so jealouse, he should just hop in on his wife’s superfamily plans and call it a day, instead of screaming and fighting for normality.

  7. brin says:

    I believe that Goop wore it intentionally but either way, this is hilarious!

  8. PHD in Gossip says:

    Chris Martin is wearing an awful rug!!

  9. Hautie says:

    Look at Elizabeth Taylor. Do you think for one moment she would have sold off pricey jewels to shut up the new husband? Hell no.

    But I am from the rule of thought. If it was a gift. There should not be any crap about how she can’t wear a lovely bracelet from a past love.

    Especially a bracelet. I can see Chris being pissy if Gwyneth was wearing the old engagement ring. But a bracelet? No.

    Maybe this is Gwyneth’s way to get her cheap husband to buy her something expensive.

    For you see, had Chris given her a nice pricey bracelet. She would not have to wear the one that Brad gave her.

  10. Esmom says:

    Haha, love the photo choices. Martin is such a dork. But I call BS on this story. Did Pitt even have the income to afford a diamond bracelet for Goop back in the day? If he did give her a bracelet I’m sure it isn’t up to her current standards of affluence.

    • LAK says:

      Sorry to blow your bubble but Brad Pitt was already a big star before he started dating Goop. It’s one of the reasons HER career took off. At that point he had starred in THELMA & LOUSE,INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE, SEVEN [which is the film they met on], She had only done support roles in things like MOONLIGHT & VALENTINO. She started getting lead roles whilst dating Brad culminating in SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE and THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY, both after him.

      • HadleyB says:

        I thought her career took off because she slept with the Weinstein brothers?

        I mean that Julie-ann – can’t recall her name for sure, was with Brad for 7 years..her career isn’t ..stellar so .. I hardly think Gwen got a huge boost. Not from Brad anyway.

      • Sab says:

        Juliette Lewis, who Brad started dating when she was 16 and he was 26, had a pretty bad run with drugs that affected her career, and they only dated 4 years. So he dated her before he got very famous. I think the Goop just got lucky and chose the right role for herself.

      • taxi says:

        Remember “A River Runs Through It” plus a western with Aidan Quinn, Anthony Hopkins, Julia Ormonde – can’t remember the name of that one.

      • ataylor says:

        And the movie with Julia Ormand, “Legends of the Fall”

  11. Spugz says:

    lol – thick as a brick goop. Brad was a lot hotter then too. Chris Martin is a total twat though. I want to smack him everytime I see his face.

  12. Sakyiwaa says:

    I heard he had that hairstyle for Seven Years in Tibet.

    And he had the biggest hobo beard I’ve ever seen on him whilst still with Aniston.

    This story is prolly BS.

    • LAK says:

      those hairstyles were for SLIDING DOORS and SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET respectively. It’s still creepy that they are very similar.

      It irks me that people never remember the year of the hobo beard when he was with Aniston and keep saying he only looked good when he was with her.

      • Lissa says:

        Wasn’t that beard thing towards the very END of their marriage, when he was stepping out on her with “bad girl” Angie and didn’t care about her opinion anymore? I could be wrong, but I’m pretty certain that’s about right.

      • Mari says:

        Lisa, he wore that awful beard for a long time around 2002… You can google “brad pitt 2002 beard”, he wore it to the Premieres of full frontal and bourne identity… Not at the end of their marriage.

    • LAK says:

      @ Lissa :- i hate that i know this…[memo to self, don’t look at the magazines at checkout!]

      i think it was in the middle because you can track the end of the relationship based on his hair. At the end he made two films one after the other; TROY [longish hair] and MR & MRS SMITH [buzz cut]. Based on that i would assume that the hobo beard was before TROY

  13. Zelda says:

    I absolutely love her necklace in the bottom pic.

    And thusly I use up all the kindness I can have for Gwyneth Paltrow in 2012.

  14. Maya says:

    Maybe Chris’ new hair pissed off Gwynnie and she got hers back by wearing the bracelet?
    Something must have pissed her off to wear Brad’s bracelet in order to gee up hubby (if this story is true, that is).

  15. Thea says:

    I think he is what they call a Friend of Dorothys.

  16. Talie says:

    I don’t think Gwyneth ever got over Brad–he never beings her up, but she frequently still talks about him. I think it’s because she cheated on him and realized how great he was after the fact. He, apparently, worshipped her, which I doubt Chris does.

    • Sab says:

      I think she talks about him still because she happened to be on the upsweep career-wise when they were together and that was a good time in her life. I don’t think it’s centered on Pitt so much as centered on her and where she was at during that time.

  17. Eleonor says:

    The only thing I can think is: does Brad know about Goopy’s colon obsession?

  18. Alejandro says:

    Doesn’t Chris cheat on her? Why is he so upset about a bracelet when Goop doesn’t even have a shot hooking up with Brad ever again.

  19. kay says:

    I cannot imagine living my life being jealous of past relationships. they happened, my husband was engaged before as well, big deal. he married me. maybe I am just not a jealous person?

  20. Rhiley says:

    I would love to win an award that looks like the one Goopy poop is holding. It is so beautiful and would really look good on the bookshelf in my den.

  21. mln76 says:

    I believe this only because of the way Chris has acted in the past. Also they say that cheaters are usually the most jealous.

  22. Alexis says:

    Ugh, Chris Martin is aging SOOO badly. He was so cute when Parachutes came out.

  23. stephanie says:

    brad used to be gorgeous and the goopster wasn’t bad herself, once upon a time.

  24. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Chris Martin must be good with his hands and please goopy somehow – that clocks song is amazing.

  25. lucy2 says:

    I kind of doubt Chris would care that much, he doesn’t seem too into her and the whole marriage.

  26. WOM says:

    Most of the time I think Chris Martin is a goof. But I see his point with this story.

    My husband would not be amused if I wore jewellery given to me by an ex. He’s not insecure or controlling, he’d just find it disconcerting that I was wearing a token of love (because that’s what jewellery is) from another man. And if the circumstances were flipped, I would also not be amused that my husband is wearing something emotionally charged from an old lover.

    However, considering it’s Goop-face, I would assume this is less about nostalgia or affection for Brad and more about showing off wealth and status.

  27. Lady D says:

    I have an opal and diamond ring that was given to me (in ’79) by my first love. I still wear the ring simply because I think it is so pretty. I wear it when I’m down because the colours cheer me up. I wear it when I feel attractive or need extra confidence. It’s very pretty. It has nothing to do with the man that gave it to me. I just like it. Is it wrong to wear it just because an ex gave it to me?

    • Kara Ann says:

      I don’t think that it is wrong in the least. When we were first dating and well into our marriage, my hubby had this black silky robe thing that he would wear. I don’t think he bought it for himself because I just can’t picture that he would have but I never asked. It didn’t really bother me although every once in awhile I’d give it the ole side-eye. We’ve been married for 18 years in May and that thing is probably in the back of a closet somewhere. Point is, he liked it, he made him feel good and I like when he feels good. Not an issue for me although some might not think isn’t a comparable comparison. Reminds me though that my sis’ husband commented just the other day that she was wearing something an old boyfriend gave her. She laughed and rolled her eyes. So maybe we just file that kinda info away and don’t think anymore about it? Seems the most logical thing to me.
      Can’t believe I have talked so long about something so trivial but you wear your ring girl and don’t let anyone tell you that’s wrong!

  28. Turd Fergussen says:

    Totally agree with Tapioca that BP (and his partner, for that matter) have careers because of their looks. (Was AJ really great in Girl Interrupted? NO. Certainly not Oscar worthy.) They’re where they are because America has declared them the ideal-looking man and woman. Period.

    • Ruffian9 says:

      I’ve never understood this point of view. There are many great beauties & studs who don’t make it big. I don’t see it, but some people think Megan Fox is a great beauty. And Paul Walker? Other than Fast & Furious, he’s nobody. A gorgeous, D-list nobody.

    • Trek Girl says:

      They might have been cast in the first movies they did because of their looks, but they definitely don’t have the careers they have now just because of them. Looks can only take you so far; at some point you have to have some substance behind those looks, and Brad and Angelina definitely do.

  29. Original Chloe says:

    Well, Aniston admitted to keeping voice messages from Pitt years after their divorce. Somehow keeping the diamond bracelet doesn’t feel THAT weird. Simply tells a lot about both women.

    If true, I’d guess Gwynnie tried some old-school emotional blackmail.

    • Sab says:

      Well CM “showed his hand” by even ever talking about BP the way he did. Why would he embarrass himself like that? That being said he seems more obsessed with BP than Goopy. How sad…LOL!

  30. Kim says:

    Whats the big deal? She is married to Chris and they have 2 kids together. What does he care about a piece of jewelry Brad gave her a decade plus ago? UNLESS he feels she secretly harbors feelings for Brad still. I think he put to much into it but very mature of her to say she would donate it if it made him upset she had it.

  31. Maritza says:

    They actually looked like brother and sister in that photo.

  32. Lauren says:

    Goopieopolis cheated on Brad. Brad became who he is because of AJ. Fatherhood brought out all Brad’s caring, maternal instincts. Goopie didn’t appreciate Brad. Angie and Brad have stayed together through all the scandal and madness. Goopiepoopie is jealous. Goopie needs a colonic cleanse on her brain.

  33. Kate says:

    I can’t get over the fact that Brad Pitt briefly dated a small time, low-rent British pop star called Sinitta. Whose main claim to fame over here is that she also dated Simon Cowell. I’m just – you dated Brad Pitt, and all you talk about to the media is SIMON COWELL?

  34. whatevs says:

    what poopie did was very tacky and disrespectful to every side of this incident. for somebody who poses as the embodiment of “klass” this is sure even tacky for her.

  35. original kate says:

    meh. something tells me chris doesn’t give a crap about what goop does or doesn’t do. i believe that marriage is just for show at this point.

  36. whatevs says:

    i realized that fug martin has gay face so maybe that’s why their marriage is allegedly sham at this point. actually most artists seem to be at least bisexual. and also noticed how poop and pitt used to dye their hair in the same colours. d’aww… haha sometimes couples dress identically and sometimes dye their hair identically

    • rainstarr says:

      Poop! Ha ha, good one. And in pictures Martin zings my gaydar, haven’t watched him in an interview, though.

      • whatevs says:

        well there is rhyme and reason to her new nickname… lol considering also that she’s obsessed with her poop

    • Whatever you want it to be says:

      …Just imagined people 500 years from now browsing the internet archives to learn more about us and reading this.

      I think Chris is self-absorbed and thinks the public and people in general give way more of a f about him and his personal life than they do. We read this much like you hear things about people you know and shortly thereafter it’s forgotten about.

  37. Kat says:

    You’ve gotta give Goopy props for managing to A) find and B) marry someone even more douchey and pretentious than she is.

    Chris “I hate poor/fat/non-famous people” Martin needs to STFU and FOAD.

  38. Andie B says:

    Is that first pic of the moment Chris spotted the Brad bracelet on Goopy’s wrist? I could believe she would have a lot of pricey jewellery tucked away that Chris may not have seen. Like the green colour of her dress. Not sure why it needs to be so low cut though.It’s just exposing her bony rib cage.

  39. grace says:

    You know..Chris does have a degree of cray-cray going on there in those baby blues!

  40. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I would do the WORST things to get that necklace–FWAOAH. It loves me and I’ve already named it Thomasina Crumpet so you can’t part the baby from it’s rightful mommy. And I’m (for the purposes of this jewel grab) a mother, now. Science.

    In that picture where she’s wearing that necklace (holy frijoles, is it ever beautiful) her ear is just strange.

    You might as well give me the ring, too. It’ll match the Swarovski-encrusted high ch–I mean, Swarovski-encrusted tampon and loveseat duo I recently aquired through the law.

  41. Leek says:

    What a loser. YOu know why I wear diamond earrings from my ex?? Because they’re diamonds. My bf couldn’t care less. He thinks they’re pretty and is probably relived he doesn’t have to buy them.

  42. Marina says:

    I agree with Leek. If you have diamonds, wear them – who cares who gave them to you.
