Gwyneth Paltrow

Powered by imdb

A tall, wafer thin, delicate beauty, Gwyneth Kate Paltrow was born in Los Angeles, the daughter of noted producer and director Bruce Paltrow and Tony award-winning actress Blythe Danner. Her father was from a Jewish family, while her mother has German, and some English and Irish, ancestry. When Gwyneth was eleven, the family moved to Massachusetts, where her father began working in summer stock productions in the Berkshires. It was here that she received her early acting training under the tutelage of her parents. She graduated from the all-girls Spence School in New York City and moved to California where she attended the UC Santa Barbara, majoring in Art History. She soon quit, realizing it was not her passion. She made her film debut with a small part in Shout and for the next five years had featured roles in a mixed bag of film fare that included Flesh and Bone; Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle; Se7en; Jefferson in Paris; Moonlight and Valentino; and The Pallbearer. It was her performance in the title role of Emma Woodhouse in Emma that led to her being offered the role of Viola in Shakespeare in Love, for which she was awarded the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Academy Awards for Best Actress in a Leading Role. She broke her much publicized engagement to actor Brad Pitt in 1997 citing as the reason the fact that neither she nor Pitt felt that they could pursue their respective careers and at the same time maintain a happy marriage. They remain good friends. Since then, her roles have included The Royal Tenenbaums, Shallow Hal, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Iron Man, Two Lovers, and Country Strong.  See full bio on IMDb »
