Gwyneth Paltrow became “really skinny” after she split from Brad Pitt in the 1990s.
To accompany her new cover interview for Harper’s Bazaar, the Avengers actress filmed a video in which she looked through her past covers for the magazine, and while holding a copy of the December 1997 issue, Gwyneth remarked that she became very thin after calling off her engagement to the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star earlier that year because she wasn’t eating.
“This one, I was only about 24 or 25,” she said of the cover photo. “Brad Pitt and I had just broken up and I had breakup… couldn’t not eat (sic). I was really skinny, it was sort of upsetting. But it’s a nice picture.”
Elsewhere in the interview, the 47-year-old revealed that she is still good friends with the actor and loves seeing Instagram posts that pay homage to their ’90s style.
In the video, Gwyneth also shared that she didn’t like her “terrible” May 2010 cover of the publication because she looked “really cheesy”, and wasn’t a fan of her November 2016 cover, in which she wore a lacy masquerade-style mask with matching top.
“I don’t like this one either. I don’t think it’s a good photo,” the star candidly stated.
However, Gwyneth’s favourite cover was for the March 2012 issue, in which she wore a black dress with revealing leg split and turned her face away from the camera.
“This was a good one, this is my iconic Bazaar cover guys,” she gushed. “I love how you can’t see my face, it’s very cool, this was a fun one. I liked this shoot a lot. This is one of my favourite shoots of all time. I loved this one, this is great.”
