Gwyneth Paltrow in Downton Abbey? Maybe Not, but She Should Be

Rumours have abounded lately that Gwyneth Paltrow is set to appear in a cameo role in Downton Abbey. Since starting her family back in 2004, Gwyneth Paltrow has kept away from starring roles, not liking to be away from her kids for too long, back in December she said that "no, women can't have it all." 

While she may be right, Paltrow is about as close as it gets, and while she continues to stay away from the direct spotlight, it's a delight to see her popping up in a variety of cameo and guesting roles, such as in Glee and a minor role in the Iron Man franchise. The latest rumour about Gwynny is that she wants to be in Downton Abbey.

TVGuide reports via Star Magazine: "[Paltrow] adored working on Glee and told her team to get her on Downton Abbey, stat! She's been told on the downlow that [show creator] Julian Fellowes is 'thrilled' and fleshing out a cameo for her." However, the rumours seem to be untrue given that Gwyn's rep told Gossip Cop that no, "She is not" appearing on "Downton Abbey." 

Well, that's a shame, Gwyneth is great in period costume. She appeared in an adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma in 1995 in which she encapsulated the role perfectly, plus, in Shakespeare in Love she played Viola De Lesseps, a role for which she won an Oscar, a Golden Globe and two Screen Actors Guild award. Accurate reports are saying 'no' now, but we hope they're bluffing.
