Top 10 Gwyneth Paltrow Movies

By Sari N. Kent,

Gwyneth Paltrow is the daughter of producer Bruce Paltrow and Tony Award-winning actress Blythe Danner. She was born in Los Angeles but moved to Massachusetts with her family, where her father began working in summer stock productions in the Berkshires, when she was 11 years old. It was here that she received her early acting training under the instruction of her parents. She then moved back to California, where she attended the University of California, Santa Barbara and majored in art history, but soon after graduation she realized that wasn’t her true passion. In 1990 she made her stage debut in the Williamstown Theatre play Picnic, and in 1991 she appeared in her first film, 1991’s Shout, with John Travolta. That same year, she met director Steven Spielberg, who gave her a small part in his movie Hook, which starred Robin Williams. Her personal life became high profile in 1994 when she began dating actor Brad Pitt, and her career got a major boost as he chose her to play his wife in the 1995 hit thriller Se7en. Yet, after their much publicized split in 1997, Paltrow was able to show Hollywood her range as an actress, and she continues to delight audiences with both comedic and serious roles. In honor of her 41st birthday today, here is a Top 10 list of Gwyneth Paltrow movies.
