Gwyneth Paltrow (born September 27, 1972) is an Academy Award, Golden Globe- and double Screen Actors Guild Award-winning American actress, as well as a chart-topping singer in Australia.
She is perhaps best known for her roles in the films Se7en, Shakespeare in Love, Iron Man and The Talented Mr. Ripley.
She is married to Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin and has had two children with him.
Early career: 1990-1994
Paltrow made her professional stage debut in 1990 and her debut on film in 1991, in Shout. Later that year, she played the role as the young Wendy in Steven Spielberg's Hook (1991).
Before her breakthrough Gwyneth Paltrow appeared in Malice and also Flesh and Bone.
Paltrow's breakthrough came when she starred in Se7en (1995), opposite Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman. The film was hugely successful commercially and critically.
This was bolstered in 1996 when she starred in Emma, where she received positive critical acclaim, particularly in the UK for her impressive English accent.
Two years later, Gwyneth Paltrow starred in Shakespeare in Love. The film earned more than $100 million in box office receipts and numerous awards. This included Paltrow receiving the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role and also an Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

Recent Years: 2000-Present
Until recently, Paltrow has had a relatively low-profile, yet steady, film career with a few critically acclaimed film roles, including Proof (2005) and The Royal Tenenbaums (2001).
Audiences got their first taste of Paltrow's singing ability with the 2000 release of Duets, with singer Huey Lewis. Towards the end of the film they perform a cover version of Smokey Robinson's "Cruisin'" which would eventually be released and go to number one in Australia, while Gwyneth Paltrow's rendition of the Kim Carnes classic "Bette Davis Eyes" reached number three.
Since winning the Academy Award for Best Actress for Shakespeare in Love, Paltrow's film success has been less noteworthy, including several cameo roles, such as her appearance in Love and Other Disasters, Running with Scissors and Infamous.
Despite some low key appearances Paltrow's leading role in 2008's Iron Man may have restored her superstar status.
Paltrow gave birth to their first child, a daughter named Apple Blythe Alison Martin, five months later, on May 14, 2004, in London.
Her second child, Moses Bruce Anthony Martin, was born on April 8, 2006 in New York City. Her son's first name was explained as the song that her husband wrote for her shortly before their secret wedding, called "Moses".
Paltrow is good friends with Madonna and they even share the same personal trainer.
On September 27, 2006 (her 34th birthday) Gwyneth sang a duet with rap artist Jay-Z during his concert at the Royal Albert Hall. She sang the chorus for Song Cry.
Paltrow is a descendent of a famous 17th century Polish rabbi, David HaLevi Segal of Krakow.
Actor Simon Pegg is Paltrow's daughter's Godfather.
It apparently happened after Weinstein "made a pass" at Paltrow back in 1995.
In a new interview, Paltrow says that the incident took place at the opening night of ‘Hamlet’ on Broadway back in 1995. Allegedly, Weinstein placed his hands upon her, and suggested that they find a bedroom and have massages, she told Howard Stern’s radio show this week.
This was when Paltrow, now 45, was a rising star and had just signed up with Weinstein’s production company to star in Emma and Shakespeare In Love.

Paltrow and Martin consciously uncoupled nearly three years ago - and she told Stephen Colbert about the state of things between them now.
The couple that memorably described their divorce as a ‘conscious uncoupling’ have just got a little weirder, with Gwyneth Paltrow describing her ex-husband Chris Martin as “like a brother” in a new interview.
Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin were married from 2003 until April 2015, when they announced to the world that they were splitting up, but branded the process a ‘conscious uncoupling’, which is one of the decade’s most amazing phrases. Since their divorce was finalised in early 2016, they’ve enjoyed a pretty relaxed relationship, for the benefit of their two children.
However, Paltrow has now moved on and is engaged to television producer Brad Falchuk. That didn’t stop her from discussing her old marriage in slightly strange terms when she appeared on TV this week.

After a lot of thought, she's decided to give marriage another go.
Gwyneth Paltrow has decided to give marriage another shot as it's reported that she and her partner of four years Brad Falchuk are officially engaged. They open up about their blissful romance in the newest edition of the actress' lifestyle magazine for her brand Goop.

Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe prepares to come to a climax as ‘The Avengers’ unite with ‘The Guardians of the Galaxy’ to stop the evil Thanos. Directed by The Russo Brothers, ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ hits cinemas this spring.
After the events of ‘Captain America: Civil War’, ‘Infinity War’ sees The Avengers left broken and divided. Some of them even look different, with Captain America (Chris Evans) sporting a beard and the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) with newly blonde hair.

Who said the consciously uncoupled can't be friends?
The actress famously consciously uncoupled from Chris in 2014 and she's pretty much been dating Brad ever since.
Sharing a photo of the two men side-by-side on Instagram, Gwyneth wrote: "Sunday brunch #modernfamily."
She's engaged just over a year since her divorce.
It's only been sixteen months since Gwyneth Paltrow finalised her divorce from Chris Martin, but rumour has it that the actress is already set to tie the knot again to her new partner Brad Falchuk. However, it seems that neither of them are wanting to rush into the process.

The 45-year-old actress and the 46-year-old 'Glee' co-creator began dating not long after Gwyneth and Chris announced that they were 'consciously uncoupling' back in 2014. Now reports say that they are planning on taking the next step in their relationship, though a source told ET that they have actually been engaged for a year.

The actor still had no idea just how predatory the producer was.
Matt Damon breaks his silence on the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal, confessing that he was aware of Gwyneth Paltrow's experience after being informed by Ben Affleck some years later, but he insists that beyond that he never realised the true extent of his predatory actions.
Matt Damon at 'Suburbicon' premiere
Just over two weeks since Rose McGowan publicly accused Matt and Ben of being aware of Harvey Weinstein's behaviour and subsequently keeping quiet about it, Matt opens up about precisely what he did know about the disgraced producer. He reveals that it was common knowledge that he was 'intimidating' and 'a bully', but naively thought Gwyneth's situation was adequately dealt with.

Gwyneth Paltrow has accused Weinstein of sexual harassment and has been criticised by her response after the event
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is one of many famous Hollywood names who has revealed herself as an alleged victim of movie producer Harvey Weinstein as he continues to be confronted by allegations of sexual abuse and harassment and rape.
Blythe Danner has come to her daughter's defence
The Iron Man star and founder of Goop website claimed Weinstein had targeted her when she was just 22 years old by putting his hands on her suggestively and trying to lead her into his bedroom for a 'joint massage' after a meeting in his suite at The Peninsula Hotel, which had been set up by her agents at CAA.
In the wake of the mounting allegations of sexual misconduct being levelled at Weinstein, BAFTA has announced that it has suspended his membership.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has taken the step of suspending Harvey Weinstein’s membership, in the wake of mounting allegations of sexual assault and harassment against the movie mogul going back decades.
High-profile female stars have come forward in recent days alleging instances where Weinstein acted inappropriately toward them, including Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd and Gwyneth Paltrow, following an explosive expose piece in the New York Times last Thursday (October 5th) late last week. A report in the New Yorker this week also detailed testimony from three other actresses, all alleging historical cases of sexual harassment.
Making the move via a press release on Wednesday (October 11th), BAFTA said that while they have “previously been a beneficiary of Mr Weinstein's support for its charitable work, it considers the reported alleged behaviour completely unacceptable and incompatible with BAFTA's values."
