Did you think you’d be discussing Gwyneth Paltrow‘s pubic hair twice in one year? Frankly, neither did we (and we bet PEOPLE’s Most Beautiful lady would agree with us on that front) — but here we are again.

The actress returned to Ellen, where just months earlier she’d whipped the internet into a tizzy discussing the nether-regions grooming required to wear her “kind of a disaster” Iron Man 3 premiere dress. “I rock a ’70s vibe,” she told the talk-show host at the time, referring to the last-minute bikini-line trimming that had to happen before she wore the daringly bare dress.

And on Tuesday, Ellen DeGeneres couldn’t help bringing that interview up again. When she asked Paltrow if she got a lot of flak for her candor, Paltrow said, “Normally I don’t read stuff at all but apparently this was in like a lot of newspapers … I knew it had permeated when my brother-in-law said to me, like, ‘I hope you’re not going to bring back big bush.’ Thanks, Al. Thanks for your support.”

And when DeGeneres said she assumed Paltrow was doing no such thing, Paltrow demurred, “Let’s not say I am and let’s not say I’m not. Are we going to talk about my pubic hair every time I come on this show?”

We’re steeling ourselves for what she might bring up on Live! With Kelly and Michael. Check out the video below, and tell us you thoughts, because we’re still reeling.
