Gwyneth Paltrow claims her daughter, Apple, has never watched a single one of her movies – despite the fact she is an Oscar winning star.
And despite having a career that spans 30 years, 54 movies, and bagging awards including Golden Globes, Emmy’s and Academy Awards, her teen daughter has shunned her impressive back catalogue of work.
Gwyneth explained that her daughter finds it ‘weird’ to see her playing a role as it is like watching someone other than her mother on screen.
She told US TV show Shop TODAY with Jill Martin: “My kids have never seen me in a movie.
“I mean, I think my son has seen the Iron Man things, but I don’t think my daughter has ever seen me in a movie.”
Among some of her biggest hits, Gwyneth has appeared in Shakespeare in Love, The Talented Mr Ripley, and Sliding Doors.
Explaining Apple’s hesitance to watch her work, Gwyneth said: “She says she likes me here, like how she knows [me], and it’s weird if I’m onscreen.”
Gwynnie starred in multiple Marvel films – including three Iron Man films alongside Robert Downey Jr, playing iconic comic book character Pepper Potts.
She also starred in Avengers: Assemble, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame as the same character.
She also made a brief appearance as Pepper in the 2017 film Spider-Man: Homecoming – a moment she forgot, prompting amusement from fans.
Gwyneth was reminded she was in the film while starring alongside Marvel director and star Jon Favreau who pointed out to her she was in the blockbuster while they prepared a meal on Netflix cooking series The Chef Show.
Jon told her: “You were in Spider-Man” to which Gwyneth shakes her head and says “No.”
Jon insists, saying: “Yeah”, prompting Gwyneth to state confidently: “I was in Avengers.”
Jon then says: “No, you were in Spider-Man also,” causing Gwyneth to exclaim: “What?” with an expression of utter disbelief on her face.
Gwynnie previously said she was finally able to understand the plot of Iron Man 3 after starring in the movie as she watched it with her family ahead of promoting the film.
She said in 2013: “We all saw it last night together with all of my kids’ friends and everybody loved it. Including myself – I was really surprised.
“I find it difficult to follow the plot on paper – who’s getting shot off of what, who’s bad, who’s good – it all gets very confusing.
“The movie plays so well and it was so much fun to watch. I was really amazed by the job Shane (Black, the director) did and I thought it was really good – so did my family.”
