Gwyneth Paltrow old Interview, where she reveals the actors she always wanted to work with
Published on February 9th, 2010 by Gioia & Filed in Career,General. Add Comment (1)

There’s a poll, here @ Gwyneth Paltrow Online, where the 62% of visitors and fans (included myself, LOL! :D ) expressed their wish to see Gwyneth in a movie with Johnny Depp. Hence, most of us would love to see them acting together, but we don’t know if this is ever going to happen. However, what does Gwyneth think about it? Here is an old Q&A to Gwyneth for the first Iron Man… and you’ll find out her answer. :) Enjoy.

Q: Hi Gwyneth. Congratulations on Iron Man. There’s talk about a sequel. Will we see you in Iron Man 2?
A: I think so. I’m signed on. It was such a fun experience so I’d love to do it again. I think we’re all signed on for not only Iron Man 2, but Iron Man 3 too so you may be seeing a lot of Pepper Potts.

Q: Were you a fan of comic books before you were offered the role on Iron Man?
A: No, I never really read them growing up. My brother did. He was a fan. That’s why I enjoyed doing Iron Man because it opened me up to this new world where fans are so passionate.

Q: Are you a comic book fan now?
A: Sure. I remember early on I asked Marvel to send me the Iron Man comics that they thought would best help me familiarise myself with Iron Man, Tony Stark and my character, Pepper Potts. Marvel sent me a couple of binders of photo-copied comics. Some were really old, but they were incredibly helpful to me. They showed howPepper had changed over the years. Different hairstyles and clothes, but also the way she dealt with Tony.

Q: If you had a super power, what would you like it to be? It might be handy to be invisible to escape from the paparazzi.
A: Yes, that would be handy (laughs). I thought being invisible would be great. Then I started thinking about it. It would be a bit creepy standing around and watching people. Don’t you think? Then I thought a power that allowed you to light fires would be handy. I would be dangerous if you couldn’t handle it, but I always have trouble at home finding matches to light candles. So if I could just walk around and light the candles with my finger, that would be kind of cool (laughs).

Q: Some people would probably say Robert Downey Jr was a strange choice to be the star of a comic book action film. What did you think when you first heard he would be Iron Man?
A: I thought it was a fantastic choice. There’s two actors I have always wanted to work with. One was
Robert. The other is Johnny Depp. I had no doubt Robert would make a great Iron Man. He’s one of the
great actors of our time and physically, he really worked out for the film. He looked great.

Q: He also brings a lot of substance to the role of Tony Stark.
A: And that’s the great thing. He’s not your average superhero. There’s all these layers to him and that’s why Robert is so brilliant in therole. He’s great physically, but then he brings his intellect and wit to the role. He’s spectacular in Iron Man, just like he’s brilliant in every other performance.

Q: As you said, Robert Downey Jr pumped up for the role. You looked great too. Did you have to work out to play Pepper Potts?
A: Luckily I didn’t have to wear a skimpy superhero outfit (laughs). But, I did have to work out. I shot the film not too long after giving birth so I had to lose about 15 baby-weight pounds. Let’s just say I had to hit the treadmill pretty hard!

Q: Pepper Potts is an interesting character. She’s not the usual damsel in distress that we often see in
action films.

A: Yes. That’s what attracted me to her. She’s a strong woman and kind of the moral centre of the
story. She keeps Tony in line and she speaks her mind.

Q: Do you think Pepper Potts is in love with Tony Stark?
A: Yeah, I think she is. I think she sees his potential and I get the feeling they’ve been together
forever, that they’re very, very, uh, almost like family. There’s something very deep between them.

Q: Can you understand her love for a guy like that because he’s a bit of a playboy? He could be trouble.
A: Yeah, sure. I mean, he’s flawed, but he’s a great man. He goes through this whole incredible
resurrection. He really takes adversity and uses it as an opportunity and that’s a sign of greatness.

Q: Iron Man has been such a huge box office and critical success. But, back when you were first
offered the role, what was it about the cast and script that caught your eye?

A: You never know what will work or not work, but there were a few things. Firstly, I always wanted to
work with Robert Downey Jnr. Also, if someone calls you and says ‘Jon Favreau is directing a movie with
Robert Downey Jnr, Terence Howard and Jeff Bridges’ I mean, how do you say no to that? It’s such an amazing group of people.

Q: You weren’t turned off because it was a big budget action film based on a comic book?
A: No, not at all. It was an interesting script, a great director and fantastic cast. You can’t be
prejudiced just because it’s big budget.

Q: The Iron Man sets were amazing. Did you take your kids on the set?
A: Yes, Apple visited. She came for lunch and that kind of thing, but she wasn’t around the big set
pieces or anything like that. Some of the sets would have been a bit scary for her.

Q: How did Apple like your Pepper Potts wig? Did she like you as a redhead?
A: No (laughs). Actually, she didn’t like it. She prefers me as a blonde.

Q: Critics have said Iron Man is your big comeback after the birth of your kids. What do you think of

A: Maybe. I didn’t really make movies for a while. I mean, I did like 10 days on my brother’s movie. I did a couple of cameos here and there and the last sort of bigrole I did was in Proof and I was pregnant with my daughter when I made that. She’s four now, so it was a while ago.

Q: Is it difficult juggling your career and your home life because, for a film like Iron Man, you have to spend long hours on set. But, you also have two young children and a husband with a busy music career that takes him around the world.
A: I’m a lot more selective with work these days. My perfect plan is to do one movie every nine months. It would have to be a project that I found inspiring. It would also have to include other actors and a director I am inspired to work with. That’s why I didIron Man. I could tick all of the boxes.

Q: Thanks so much for your time.
A: Thanks.

Kiss fires up Downey in Iron Man 2
Published on January 4th, 2010 by Gioia & Filed in Career. Add Comment

Gwyneth Paltrow gives Robert Downey Jr a kiss on the helmet in the first scenes from Iron Man 2.

The new trailer for the film – set to hit cinemas in May – gives a sneak peek at what fans can expect from the comic book sequel.

It certainly doesn’t disappoint, with never-before-seen scenes featuring Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Don Cheadle as War Machine.

Downey has said the new film will stick to the formula that made the first such a box office smash – describing it as a high-tech James Bond.

He says he wanted to make sure the plot of the second film remained grounded and was lucky that, thanks to the success of the first film, producers allowed him to give plenty of input.

‘Once you tell a story pretty well, that’s usually where things start to get dull, and one or two or three things start to happen over and over again,’ he said.

‘So, we made Tony Stark’s challenges very much outside the usual realm of activity. As much as anything else, it’s much more of a side job for him the second time around.

‘It would be so easy to go so far out it would be intergalactic and nothing would be grounded in reality any more.

‘But I think what worked for ‘Iron Man’ is that it almost seemed like something from the cover of Popular Mechanics.

‘These kinds of suits were starting to be made in the States and Japan, so people were responding to Iron Man almost as though it was a more of a high-tech James Bond.’

The film hits cinemas on May 7, 2010.

The first trailer for Jon Favreau’s Iron Man 2 is expected to drop as early as Wednesday evening and Entertainment Tonight has previewed presumably the first footage from it.

In the short clip, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man is sharing what looks to be a flirtatious moment with Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts aboard a cargo plane in mid-flight. In an instant she tosses the Iron Man helmet out the open bottom and says “go get em.”

A second clip shows Iron Man appear at some huge gala event in spectacular fashion that would make Apollo Creed jealous. The man knows how to make an entrance.

Entertainment Tonight’s full Iron Man 2 exclusive will air Wednesday night so be sure to set those DVRs.

Gwyneth Paltrow & Leighton Meester Saddle Up For Country Film
Published on December 3rd, 2009 by Gioia & Filed in Career. Add Comment


Gwyneth Paltrow and Leighton Meester are going country on the big screen.

The actresses will join Tim McGraw and Garrett Hedlund in the country singing drama “Love Don’t Let Me Down,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Tobey Maguire will co-produce the film, which follows an up-and-coming musician (Hedlund) who falls for a country singer past her prime (Paltrow).

When they set out on tour with the singer’s husband/manager (McGraw) and a beauty queen-turned-singer (Meester), love triangles and problems from their past threaten to derail them all.

Paltrow, who was last seen in the early 2009 romance drama “Two Lovers,” will next hit the big screen in “Iron Man 2” (May 2010).

“Gossip Girl” star Meester has two movies awaiting release in 2010 – the college thriller “The Roommate” with Cam Gigandet and Minka Kelly; and the romantic comedy “Date Night,” starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey.

Country crooner-turned-actor McGraw currently stars in “The Blind Side,” opposite Sandra Bullock.

Hedlund recently wrapped production on “Tron: Legacy,” which will hit theaters in December 2010.

Production on “Love Don’t Let Me Down” is slated to begin in January in Nashville.

Paltrow Joins Kidman in “Danish Girl”
Published on November 7th, 2009 by Gioia & Filed in Career. Add Comment

Gwyneth Paltrow will join Nicole Kidman in “The Danish Girl,” an adaptation of the David Ebershoff novel that tells the story of a relationship between the first post-operative transsexual, Einar Wegener, and his wife Greta.

Thomas Alfredson (“Let the Right One In”) is directing a script by Lucinda Coxon. Gail Mutrux, Anne Harrison and Linda Reisman are producing, along with Kidman and Per Saari.

One afternoon in 1920s Copenhagen, Greta, a portrait painter, asked her husband to stand in for an absent female model. Slipping on a dress, stockings and woman’s shoes began a metamorphosis into Lili. When the photos became wildly popular, Greta encouraged her husband to do more, but a harmless game evolved into something deeper that threatens their marriage.

Kidman had already been attached to play Einar, and Paltrow will play Greta, who stood by her partner through the sex-change operation, finally letting go when she realized the man she married no longer exists. .

Footprint Investments LLC is financing, and international sales are being handled by Kathy Morgan at KMI. Pic is a coproduction between Pretty Pictures in association with Harrison Productions and Blossom Films.

Paltrow most recently wrapped “Iron Man 2,” which opens May 7, 2010.

She’s repped by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

Scarlett Johansson Denies Catfight with Gwyneth Paltrow
Published on August 3rd, 2009 by Gioia & Filed in Career. Add Comment

It’s common knowledge by now that, whenever two equally famous actresses are cast together in the same movie, rumors of catfights and jealousy fits are bound to emerge. The situation was no different with “Iron Man 2,” on the set of which Scarlett Johansson reportedly fought with Gwyneth Paltrow whenever she could, and vice versa. The truth of the matter, Johansson tells IO9, is that, while they’re not exactly friends, there is no animosity between them either.

Again, this is not necessarily because they are close friends or do things girls usually do, Scarlett explains, but rather because Paltrow is so absorbed by her family that she rarely gets to notice anything else going on the set when the cameras are not rolling. Moreover, the actress explains, Gwyneth is probably not even aware of the rumors circulating in the media and, if she were, chances are she would still not care about them. In other words, Paltrow lives completely torn from the outside world, Scarlett says.

“Nothing could be further from the truth. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about working with her. Well, she’s very much out of the loop. She’s very much out of the loop, you know – she’s got a wonderful family whom she spends a lot of time with. So for her, she’s like, ‘What’s going on? What?’ And of course Jon [Favreau] who’s on his Twitter, he’s crazy about any kind of news about anything. He’s like ‘You haven’t heard? You haven’t heard?’ And he comes onto set and we’re both like, ‘Oh god.’ Every time I would say to Gwyneth, ‘Oh yeah, that was on the seventh,’ and she’d say, ‘Are you sure it wasn’t on the sixth?’ He’d [Favreau] yell, ‘what? It’s a cat fight! It’s breaking out’.” Johansson explains for the aforementioned e-zine.

All rumors and jokes aside, Scarlett has nothing but good things to say about working with Gwyneth, who is a truly dedicated actress who does things by the book and is, because of this, beyond reproach. That’s why the latest addition to the “Iron Man” franchise is certain that fans will not overlook her character when the second film comes out, no matter what rumors might say.

Asked whether Paltrow snubbed this year’s Comic-Con because all attention would be diverted to Johansson and she would not get her fair share in the spotlight, Scarlett has this to say: “Believe me, she’s worthy of plenty of attention and I know that that fans love her and they are going to love to see her in this movie, because her character kind of comes into her own. I know she would love to be here as well, but she’s with her family.”
