Gwyneth Paltrow Still Knows Nothing About The Marvel Movies She Stars In
Gwyneth Paltrow was on 'The Graham Norton Show' recently where she proved she still has very little knowledge of her own movies.
Paltrow has been one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's longest serving players, appearing first in 'Iron Man' back in 2008 as Pepper Potts, and starring in seven of the films so far.
But don't be fooled, she still has absolutely no clue about any of them.
Appearing on the couch alongside 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' stars Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal, Paltrow once again showed off her patented refusal to absorb any Marvel-related information.
When Gyllenhaal was talking about his character, Mysterio, Paltrow piped up:
"Mysterio?" She enquired, "I didn't know if he said Wisteria like..." she said before Gyllenhaal cut her off.
"Yeah, Wisteria like the flower! It's wisteria."
Mysterio appeared in 'The Amazing Spider-Man' #13 back in 1964 and has long been one of Spider-Man's foes whose abilities range from illusions, hypnotism, and expert hand-to-hand combat. In 'Far From Home', as Gyllenhaal explained, his version of Mysterio falls through a "dimensional rift" and must work with Spider-Man to chase "an incredible creature".
While all that was being explained Paltrow was probably quietly trying to figure out what the hell Gyllenhaal was talking about.
Later when Holland began to chat about 'Far From Home's plot he also mentioned -- and spoiled for a few people -- the ending of 'Avengers: Endgame', a film he starred in alongside Paltrow.
"The film is a direct continuation of 'Avengers: Endgame'," Holland said, "so we deal with the ramifications of the blip, of the death of Tony Stark... sorry to anyone who hasn't seen the film."
Laughing alongside her co-star, Paltrow admitted... she was among those who had still yet to see one of the biggest movies of all time.
Recently Paltrow had another awkward Marvel-related admission in the new Netflix series 'The Chef Show'.
Hosted by Jon Favreau, who directed and starred alongside Paltrow in the 'Iron Man' movies as Happy Hogan, 'The Chef Show' had the GOOP founder as a guest in the first episode.
During the segment, Paltrow innocently asked Favreau, "What is this TV show for?"
Favreau explained that he and his co-host celebrity chef Roy Choi came up with the idea while they were filming 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'.
"Spider-Man?" Paltrow responded, the whole concept completely baffling to her and despite his best efforts to remind her of the cameo she declares, "We weren't in Spider-Man..."
There's truly nothing better than someone so incredibly busy and famous that they don't even know what movies they're starring in.
Unfortunately, Paltrow told 'Variety' back in February that 'Endgame' would likely be her final stint as Pepper Potts.
"I’m a bit old to be in a suit and all that at this point," the 46-year-old said, "I feel very lucky that I did it because I actually got talked into it. I was friends with Jon Favreau.
"It was such a wonderful experience making the first ‘Iron Man’ and then to watch how important it has become to fans," she continued before admitting that she wasn't ruling out future cameos in the franchise.
Just, you know, don't expect her to remember what movies she cameos in.
