During my whirlwind trip to Hollywood last week I got the chance to meet and interview Gwyneth Paltrow herself. In case you didn’t know Gwyneth plays the role of Pepper Potts in the Iron Man movies. There has been a lot of buzz surrounding Gwyneth Paltrow in the past few weeks in particular the fact that she was named People Magazine’s Most Beautiful, so it was an exciting time to get to ask her a few questions.
I wasn’t sure what to expect with Gwyneth Paltrow I mean she is one of Hollywood’s biggest actresses, but as soon as she walked into the room she had everyone laughing. She just has one of those personalities than can light a whole room up. Gwyneth is not only incredibly beautiful but she is super sweet and down to Earth. Below are a few of the questions we got to ask her during the interview and her responses. You might be surprised just how funny she is!
When Gwyneth first walked into the room, wearing a slimming white dress, she had a massive smile on her face! She was just as excited to be there as all of us were. She has a great figure and her skin looked amazing for being in her 40’s.
One of my favorite parts about Iron Man 3 was when Gwyneth put on the Iron Man suit. We were all really excited to ask her thoughts about putting this iconic suit on and she was more than happy to tell us about it!
“I love putting on the suit. It was really weird, like I’ve never done anything like that in my whole career, and my son was on set, and so I’ll never forget it; I walk out onto the set, and I was fully dressed in the suit, and his face, because he’s like in the last probably year and a half, watched the first Iron Man and Avengers and everything- I’ll never forget his face. Like, he was in shock and awe. It was so cool.”
As a mom we all thrive for that moment when we can make our kids proud so when we asked her if she thought is was Mommy cool, here is her response…I love it!
“Oh my God, yes. And by the way, I now have, like, a Lego in the set- there’s a Pepper, so I am, like, I am a goddess. So fun.”
So how did Gwyneth feel about Pepper Potts in Iron Man 3 and putting on the iconic suit?
“I loved it so much. You know, I was getting kind of like, come on, guys. Pepper, let’s- come on, all these boys are flying around doing all this fun stuff, and I loved, yeah, I loved how patient and kind and sweet Pepper is, but when I read this script, I was like, oh yeah. It was really fun. I felt like why am I doing all these period films, like, it’s so boring.”
So can we expect to see more of Pepper Potts, perhaps in her own super hero movie? Here is what Gwyneth thinks!
“I don’t know. I would actually really like to, but really, am I old now to start, like, you know, being in action movies I would like to. The nice thing is that everybody’s sort of been very sweet about Pepper in this movie, like all the journalists who came in. They were like, oh my God, you have to have your own movie, because in the comics, Pepper gets her own suit, and she becomes a character called Rescue. And they’re like, we need a Rescue movie, and I’m like, okay, well, I’d better hit the gym.”
Some other interesting facts we learned during our Interview with Gwyneth Paltrow.
- Robert Downey Jr. is “the most spontaneous, mad genius, improvising, like, you’re really on your toes”.
- If Gwyneth got to design her own suit she would choose her favorite colors: Gray, silver and white.
- She doesn’t normally like super-hero type movie’s but she really Loved the new Iron Man 3 and thought it had a great story line beyond all of the action.
I want to thank Gwyneth Paltrow for taking time out of her busy schedule to meet all of us. It was a great experience!
