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.
Law enforcement sources suggest that the substance of the allegations of child abuse aimed at Pitt do not warrant an investigation.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation in America has reportedly decided to not investigate the child abuse accusations levelled against Brad Pitt – and said that the investigation was never opened in the first place because there was no case to answer.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that “the matter should never have even been referred to the agency”, regarding the accusations that Pitt had verbally and physically abused his son on board a private jet last month.
The 52 year old Hollywood A-lister, who is in the process of divorcing Angelina Jolie after she filed court papers just over a fortnight ago, was accused of “screaming” and “ranting” at the couple’s six children during a flight from France to the US earlier this year.

No, seriously, stop laughing.
Gwyneth Paltrow isn't known for shying away from sexual issues and she's at it again, recommending a new lubricant that she promises to be completely non-toxic. Because apparently, the lube that's already out there isn't as safe as it's made out to be - at least that's what she tells Chelsea Handler.
Gwyneth Paltrow talks about a strange new Goop product
On Handler's new Netflix show 'Chelsea', Paltrow opens up about a new product called Sliquid available on Goop. With a rather reasonable price tag of $13 (at least, in comparison with most products from the company), it's meant to be a totally organic and safe for use in sexual activity.

The 43 year old actress says she uses apitherapy to clear up scarring and inflammation of the skin.
Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed one of her most bizarre beauty and lifestyle treatments yet – which, given the contents of her Goop website, has to go quite some distance to be up there. In a new interview, she says she lets bees sting her as a form of beauty therapy.
The 43 year old actress told the New York Times that the treatment, known as apitherapy, is in fact thousands of years old, and she uses it to tackle scarring of her skin. “People use it to get rid of inflammation and scarring. It's actually pretty incredible if you do your research. But man, it's painful.”

The couple announced their split in March 2014 after ten years of marriage.
When Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their separation in March 2014, it was the couple’s choice of wording which made the most lasting impression. Saying the were ‘consciously uncoupling’, Paltrow is yet to live the phrase down, even though the pair managed to divorce on the best terms.
Gwyneth Paltrow has spoken about life after her divorce from Chris Martin.
Speaking to Matt Lauer on ‘Today’, Paltrow said: "I unwittingly created a whole sort of hoopla with my choice of words. It wasn't my words actually. I was sort of following a theory.” Both Paltrow and Martin are still close despite the divorce and continue to co-parent their two children.

Dante Soiu, 66, was found not guilty despite admitting to sending dozens of messages and packages to the actress over the course of six years.
A man accused of stalking Gwyneth Paltrow has been found not guilty of all charges by a jury in a court in Los Angeles, despite the actress herself testifying that dozens of unsolicited messages had made references to marriage and her death.
66 year old Dante Soiu, of Cleveland, Ohio, admitted in court that he had sent Paltrow a total of 66 letters and packages between 2009 and 2015, but said that they were by way of apology for sending pornographic messages to her between 1999 and 2000.
