Mastermind behind hit film Juno, screenwriter, producer and director Diablo Cody tweeted a little something this morning that made us oh so very nostalgic. "At first you think she's the best part of this pic, and then you see him. #90s," she wrote, attaching a photo of Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt from when they dated many moons ago. And it got us reminiscing about A-list ex-power couples of the 90s.

And can we please just take a second to appreciate Mossy's phenomenal facial features! Oof.
Sandra Bullock and Matthew McConaughey? Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt? Talk about a trip down memory lane.
