Why we love Gwyneth Paltrow
The daughter of ‘movie people’, she studied Art History before jacking in for acting instead. Her big break came in Se7en in 1995 as a head in a box – “What’s in the box?” She dated co-star Brad Pitt for a couple of years, and she moved into chick-flicks such as Emma and Shakespeare in Love, before more murder in The Talented Mr. Ripley.
It was in The Royal Tenenbaums that she became kookily sexy though, smoking and sleeping with old men. And she played a fat chick in Shallow Hal and a sexy secretary in Iron Man, appearing on the premiere red carpet in the shortest skirt since rationing. She is now married to Chris Martin, lead singer of Coldplay. Their dinner parties have fewer laughs than the Nuremberg Trials.
But Gwyneth Paltrow is returning, not just in Iron Man 3 but also in The Avengers. Double sexy secretary! Paltrow also turned up in the 2011 film Contagion as a dead body who gets the top of her head cut off. She’s also an adulteress and ground-zero for a disease that wipes out millions of people. Nice one Gwynnie. Thanks a bunch.
