Gwyneth Paltrow made her Marvel debut in 2009 with Iron Man opposite Robert Downey Jr. While the latter got to do most of the high-octane action sequences, Paltrow did not really get to pull up some punches. The same happened in Iron Man 2 and it looks like the actress might have gone a little jealous of the lead actors like Downey and Scarlett Johansson as she hoped to get some action in Iron Man 3. Scroll down to know the details.
Gwyneth Paltrow might not have got to do action in Marvel movies but she definitely raked in an insane amount of moolah for starring in superhero movies. Paltrow, on the personal front, often makes headlines for her controversial skin care routines.
Gwyneth Paltrow during a different interaction spoke about working with Robert Downey Jr saying, “I always wanted to work with Robert Downey Jr. Also, if someone calls you and says ‘Jon Favreau is directing a movie with Robert Downey Jr, Terence Howard and Jeff Bridges,’ I mean, how do you say no to that? It’s such an amazing group of people.”
The Goop founder once hinted towards quitting the Marvel movies in an earlier interview. “I just came off of Iron Man 3, which is as special effects-y and action-y as it gets, so to do something like [Thanks For Sharing] where it’s really small, funny and exciting, is really great.”
