Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has only liked two of her movies she has made since winning an OSCAR for Shakespeare In Love in 1998.

The actress is proud of The Royal Tenenbaums and THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY but insists her other work - such as Shallow Hal and box office flops DUETS and VIEW FROM THE TOP - failed to make the grade.

Of her two favourite choices, she says, "That's it since Shakespeare in Love. I'm trying to think if I left anything out. No, not really."

However, Paltrow - who won a Best Actress Oscar in 1999 for the JOSEPH FIENNES-starring movie - has high hopes of success with her new film, SYLVIA, in which she stars as poet SYLVIA PLATH.

And the sexy star has learnt the key to movie success is to choose roles wisely and only sign up for a couple of movies a year.

She adds, "I have none of that wide-eyed, 'Where is this going to go?' anymore. It's not excitement like that. It's excitement like I know what I'm doing and I know what I want to do.'"
