Only one man could spare gorgeous actress GWYNETH PALTROW the pain of having to face her ex-fiance again - her dad.
Gwyneth, who said her "heart broke" the day she split up with Hollywood hunk BRAD PITT, should have starred with the FIGHT CLUB heart-throb in new film DUETS - but her director dad BRUCE put a stop to it.
Brad had been willing to stick with the film, although he wasn't being paid, but protective Bruce insisted his daughter could not work with the man who broke her heart. Bruce says, "I love Brad, he's a wonderful boy. He was doing the part out of affection. "When they broke up, to hold him to his commitment was indecent. Of course I let him out." (NFA/WNTRE/RGS)
