Celebrity couple flashback: Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow (and their matching haircuts)

Let's all pile in to the BLOW OFF time machine. We're heading to 1994 when Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow first started dating. Brad was still young and hot then (the guy just turned 47 a few days ago, that's almost 50, folks) and Gwyneth was barely famous and seemingly demure.

More importantly, they were both blond and destined to procreate little blond children.

She was only 22 when they first started dating and he was 31. Dare I say that's the same age difference between Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift...

So, why were Brad and Gwynie so much less gross? Hmmm, probably cause I was only 14 back then and everyone over 21 seemed the same age to me.

Anyway, when Brad won the Golden Globe for his work on Twelve Monkeys, he called Gwyneth his "angel, love of my life." They even got matching haircuts. But six months into their engagement...Gwyneth broke it off, claiming she was too young to get married. (duh, she was only 24 by then.) Apparently, Brad was brokenhearted. That makes Gwyneth Paltrow quite possibly the first and only woman that ever blew off Brad Pitt. And she was with him at his hottest.

Wow. I have a new found respect for her.
