Gwyneth Paltrow was cut from her first film before she was born.

The actress jokes she should be credited for a role in an episode of detective drama Columbo, because her mother Blythe Danner was heavily pregnant while filming a guest spot on the Tv series.

The Oscar winner says, "Technically speaking, my first time ever on film I was in her stomach. I was in utero.

"They had shot it and she was pregnant but then they had to do some reshoots and by that point she was nine months pregnant and it was from here (chest) up, so I was also cut out of the movie."
