Gwyneth Paltrow Supports Kourtney Kardashian In Her Q&A Session

Gwyneth Kate Paltrow is an American actress and businesswoman. She is best known for her film portrayal of intelligent and complex characters. Her early film roles included roles in Jefferson in Paris (1995), Seven (1995), and Shakespeare in Love (1998) which helped her earn an Academy Award-winning performance as William Shakespeare’s muse Viola; the film also earned an Oscar for best picture. 

She followed her career with much more diverse roles, which included portraying a karaoke singer in Duets (2000); former child prodigy Margot Tenenbaum in Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums (2001); and late poet Sylvia Plath in Sylvia (2003). She even played a gifted mathematician questioning her mental health in Proof (2005). In some of her highest-grossing films, she appeared with Robert Downey, Jr., as Iron Man’s companion Pepper Potts in the blockbuster Iron Man series (2008, 2010, and 2013), a role that she reprised for The Avengers (2012), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), and Avengers: Endgame (2019). She also appeared in the comic caper Mortdecai (2015), as the wife of a flamboyant art dealer and spy (Johnny Depp). In 2019, Paltrow was cast as the mother of an overachieving student in Netflix’s farcical series The Politician.

Recently, the star took it to her Instagram story to reply to the Question and Answer box, in which she put to rest all the speculations regarding reality star Kourtney Kardashian possibly copying her business idea of Goop.
