Mark Zuckerberg's viral photoshopped beard has earned him quite a few comparisons to the likes of Jack Harlow and Logan Paul. But now Gwyneth Paltrow is comparing the surprising photo to her famous ex.

After the Meta CEO, 39, captured the internet's attention over the weekend with an imaginary look that social media users bestowed upon him, the Goop founder likened the bearded tech giant to her ex-husband, Chris Martin.

"He looks like my ex hubs in this pic," Paltrow, 51, commented under a post from The Shade Room.

And she isn't the only one who shares the sentiment, as multiple people in the comment section admitted that they confused the fake image of Zuckerberg with a pic of the Coldplay vocalist, 47.

"It’s giving Jack Harlow and Chris Martin if they had a love child," one Instagram user wrote, while another added: "Chile I thought this was Chris Martin from Coldplay 😮‍💨🤨😂😂😂."

As previously reported, the image went viral for both it's surprise factor and the numerous heart-eye emojis social media users have bestowed upon it. The photo followed an April 18 video that Zuckerberg shared to Instagram, in which he announced a “new version of Meta AI."

Not long after, Mike Rundle, whose username on X (formerly Twitter) is @flyosity, photoshopped some facial hair on Zuckerberg and shared it on X. It then picked up some steam on multiple platforms.

“Y’all think he needs to go ahead and grow that beard out," The Shade Room captioned a side-by-side of a beardless and bearded Zuckerberg, who directly responded to the post.

"Okay who did this?” the Meta CEO commented.

Since the photoshopped facial hair left it's mark on internet users, Zuckerberg himself has seemingly joked that he's contemplating growing out a little scruff.

In a since-expired Instagram Stories post shared by several journalists, he uploaded a photo of a razor and a thinking-face emoji. The photo was soundtracked by Harlow's "They Don't Love It."

Zuckerberg’s wife, Priscilla Chan, then shared the bearded photo to her own Instagram Stories, writing: “Anyone seen my husband??? And who is this guy?”

While Zuckerberg's fake beard may have reminded Paltrow of her ex, she and Martin split back in 2014. She has been married to Brad Falchuk since 2018.

Paltrow told PEOPLE in November 2023 she and Martin remain "family" all these years later.

"I think it's such a difficult and personal decision, and when someone really knows that it's not in their highest interest to be in that marriage, I just always say, you want to put your kids first," she said, adding that he "has a real sweetness and he brings that to the way that he parents."
