Hot or Not: Gwyneth Paltrow

May. 4, 2010by: Cherry Liquor

I think that if I ever did a Hot or Not week on ScarJo, I'd be run out of town my fanboys waving their boners at me along the way. Hmm... is that a torch they could light, I wonder? At any rate, considering that the infamous Woody muse is in the banner of this column as being the Hot example, I figured we could hit up the other female star of the only movie worth watching this weekend, BABIES! um, IRON MAN 2. I think you all know this one by now, but over time, your feelings about her might have changed.

Gwyneth Paltrow

To be honest, when I first started catching Paltrow in movies, I wondered if she was just sailing on the fact that she came from Hollywood royalty. Daughter of director/writer/producer Bruce Paltrow and pretty hot back in her time actress Blythe Danner, Gwynnie was a college drop-out who got cast in Steven Spielberg's HOOK mainly because he knew her parents. Acting alongside her mother on stage in her early years helped to attach her name even more to a born-into-it instead of earning it life of acting.

With a romantic relationship with mega-hottie Brad Pitt, she helped to elevate her exposure when she was cast as his wife in SE7EN but frankly, didn't really make that big of an impression on me. I liked her quite a bit in EMMA, a movie where she got to be in a period piece a couple of years before wearing that awful, ill-fitting pink gown to the Oscars when she won her Best Actress Oscar for SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE. (Ugh, that's a whole other Oscar politics argument when I start thinking about the campaigning that went on to earn that movie its statue. But I digress.)

Since starting off with what most in the industry would consider a bang-up beginning, Gwyneth has mainly played out a bunch of sour-faced roles where she's trying her hardest to be quirky (THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS) or flouncing at a pretty unconvincing sense of humour (SHALLOW HAL, VIEW FROM THE TOP) or just a bunch of other movies where she really could have been completely interchangeable with any other actress and no one would have noticed. While I will concede that I thought she was a great complement against Robert Downey Jr in the first IRON MAN (mainly because he's so flamboyant and giddy with cheer as the narcissistic playboy that he needed her sourpuss face to counterbalance that), it might have also just been a lot of good luck on Favs great casting. (Yeah, I know everyone is wary of ScarJo as Black Widow, but people were also leery of RDJ as Iron Man in the first place, in case we've forgotten. Have faith in the director, I trust him.)

So, all the history of Paltrow and her roles considered, do you find her Hot or Not?

Nope

She's by no means ugly and I liked her in 'The Royal Tenenbaums', but I can't look past my own apathy for her to call her hot.

NOT HOT

I mean bee stings would be kind in saying and how about constant depressed look across her face? It migt actually be hard for her to smile.

Are you Kidding me?

She's one of the most talented, beautiful and sexy woman in the industry! She doesn't need to play as a slot to be sexy.

Yeah, I guess. She's on the cusp, with her looks barely edging out her stuck up personality.

When you manage to seduce the likes of Brad Pitt and Chris Martin, your hotness is never really in doubt. And so far, I must say she's aging beautifully.

I find you a bit harsh on her acting. She isn't the biggest talent out there but she's still very skilled. Give all the credit you want to RDJ, the chemistry works because she holds her own and her delivery is a big reason why I think Pepper Potts is one the very few effective female characters in the genre.

Gywneth is for sure hot, even though I don't love a lot of her work.

Ive always thought for years, ever since watching the Royal Tenenbaums, that she is beautiful but not really hot. However with that said, after seeing her pictures at the Iron Mna premiere of how she is gotten a bit thicker and not so thin, she is most definitely hot...

She's not one of my favorites or anything, but she's certainly not ugly.

I would say that she is hot especially in the Iron Man films. Definitely hot.

Going just off for body, I'd say, but the way she conducts herself, personality, etc. changes that. The whole package certainly makes her very attractive.

She is very cute. But something about her demeanor rubs me wrong, just a tad. So I will go with not. But still cute.

HOT

I'll have to agree with Terminal that she is quite radiant at times. In my mind though, that qualifies her as a major hottie. There's always been something about the characters that she plays, even when they're dumpy and dour (Margot in Royal Tennenbaums) that just make her the complete package for me

I'll say not. Sometimes she's quite radiant to look at but that doesn't qualify as hot for me. That's just my personal opinion.
