Celebrating Goop’s 15th anniversary, Gwyneth Paltrow recently spoke with New York Times dive deeper and dispel myths, including that bone broth isn’t all she eats. In between discussing how, yes, she does indeed run Goop and discussing fashion decisions in the courtroom, she brings up her ex-fiancé’s latest venture.
Although Paltrow and Brad Pitt never got around to tying the knot in the mid-’90s, the couple maintained a close friendship over the years. This includes being one of the first to try products from Pitt’s Le Domaine skincare line. The vegan, sustainable brand is based on natural ingredients from Provence and promises that despite Pitt’s involvement, they “are not another celebrity beauty brand.”
As for Paltrow’s opinion, Le Domaine gets her stamp of approval.
“It’s good,” she says. “Yes, it’s really beautiful.”
The line is a soft, genderless scent from a perfumer based in Grasse, France, with delicate notes of orange blossom and woody notes of cedar, housed in elegant black glass. Le Domaine includes a serum, an anti-aging daily fluid cream, a gentle facial cleanser and an antioxidant cream. Le Domaine combines everything you need for anti-aging and skin care.
And Paltrow was obviously an inspiration for Pitt.
Speaking to the British last year Fashion, he explained that Paltrow was the first person who got him to invest in his own skin. “She was probably the first person to get me to wash my face twice a day… maybe,” Pitt says.
For its part, Goop is now an empire of books, jewelry, clothing and, of course, skincare. She’s sold everything from intimate oil to a candle that smells like her vagina, as Paltrow admits she loves to experiment.
“If history has shown me anything, it’s that I always look back and think, ‘Wow, that was fun to experiment with,'” Paltrow says.
