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.
Paltrow's site in dubious cod-scientific claim - no.136.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s controversial lifestyle website Goop might really have put its foot in it now, after an ex-NASA scientist took it upon himself to tear down the dubious beneficial health claims the star’s site made about Body Vibes stickers that “promote healing”.
Many have loved attacking Goop over the years over its highly questionable health tips and pseudo-scientific claims, but now the site has been forced to remove claims it made over ‘Body Vibes stickers’, specifically that they were based on NASA technology and could “rebalance the energy frequency in our bodies” if worn on the arm or near the heart.

Paltrow spoke about the media perception of her, and about her 'conscious uncoupling' from Coldplay singer Chris Martin three years ago.
The 44 year old, who split from the Coldplay frontman after more than a decade of marriage back in March 2014 and coined the notorious “conscious uncoupling” phrase, is often accused of being out of touch, and her Goop wellness/lifestyle newsletter has frequently been the object of derision in the press.
However, Paltrow addressed this perception of her in a new interview with The Edit, saying that she’s the first to admit that she’s led a charmed life, but it hasn’t been all good.

One very eager fan just couldn't keep their feelings for the Coldplay singer hidden during a show in Pittsburgh.
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin was taken aback by a fan during the band’s show in Pittsburgh, who explicitly asked the singer to have sex with them mid-show. Martin, who was formerly married to Gwyneth Paltrow, told the fan he’d have to take them for dinner first, adding that he felt like he was 15 again.

Martin was about to perform ‘Everglow’ from the band’s 2015 album A Head Full of Dreams, when one fan shouted: “F*** me Chris”. Taken aback Martin, who was sitting at his piano, responded: “It’s a lovely offer... I’d have to take you to dinner first, you know what I’m saying?”
The couple, who married in 2013, announced their split last year.
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has opened up about life after his split from wife Gwyneth Paltrow. The 38 year old appeared on Australia's 2DayFM on Monday and addressed the break-up for the first time, saying he feels ‘grateful to be alive.’
Chris Martin has spoken for the first time about his split from Gwyneth Paltrow.
"I went through some big changes... everyone knows about them,” Martin said. "[I was able to] figure out where I've gone wrong in my way of looking at the world. A few years ago I was in a low place in my life and was feeling kind of down and confused.”
Gwyneth Paltrow discussed the gender pay gap in Hollywood.
Gwyneth Paltrow is adding her name to the growing list of female (and many male) actors who are appalled with the substantial gender pay gap in Hollywood. The 43-year-old Mortdecai actor and Goop founder hit back at the film industry for its inequality and sexism during a recent interview. She also used one very prominent example to prove her point.

Speaking about THAT article to Fast Company, the American actress explained that it was her Goop editorial director who decided to use the phrase.
After popularising the rather ludicrous phrase “conscious uncoupling” as a euphemism for her divorce from her ex-husband, Gwyneth Paltrow has claimed in a new interview that it wasn’t actually her who coined the term.
The 42 year old actress explained to Fast Company that it was the editorial director of her lifestyle site Goop, Elise Loehnen, who came up with the phrase in a headline and didn’t warn her in advance of the article going live.

The 'Girls' actor and best-selling author is planning to enter to blogosphere with a new weekly newsletter, entitled 'Lenny'.
Lena Dunham is looking to enter the digital publishing industry on top her work in TV and film, with the news that she’s to collaborate with the launch of a regular feminist newsletter later this year.
The 29 year old creator and star of HBO’s ‘Girls’ is teaming up with one of the show’s runners Jenni Konner for a newsletter called Lenny, a weekly e-mail bulletin that will offer content and advice aimed at young women “where there’s no such thing as too much information.”

Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Alba, Blake Lively – what do they all have in common? They’re all female, they’re all actresses and they’ve all launched their own successful business. But, Paltrow argues, the four should never be compared as their businesses are all very “different”.
There’s one thing Gwyneth Paltrow hates more than all the non-organic, fatty food combined and that’s being compared to other actresses who have turned their considerable talents to business enterprises. Paltrow, who is currently on hiatus from acting whilst she focuses on her business GOOP, revealed she considers being compared with other actresses as sexist as actors, who launched business, are not grouped together in the same way.

The queen of GOOP’s health and beauty tips aren't as boring as you might have imagined.
In the past Gwyneth Paltrow has come in for a lot flack thanks to some of the frankly bonkers lifestyle advice she’s doled out (remember the time she told women to steam their vaginas?). But maybe Gwyneth has mellowed a bit in recent months, as her beauty tips from the latest issue of Women’s Health magazine sound surprisingly 'normal'.
Gwyneth covers the June issue of Women’s Health magazine.
“I believe, as cheesy as it sounds, in exercise, laughing, having sex, being yourself," Paltrow told the mag. ”I'm not like, 'Then I use this masque that I make on my stove.'" The actress added that she now feels way more comfortable in a bathing suit than she did 20 years ago.
