SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW

Since GWYNETH PALTROW's (Polly Perkins) remarkable performance in the critically acclaimed "Flesh and Bone,” opposite Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid, Hollywood has taken a keen interest in the future of this talented actress. Her role as Viola de Lesseps, opposite Joseph Fiennes in Miramax's "Shakespeare in Love” garnered her a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award and an Academy Award for Best Actress. 

Paltrow most recently starred opposite Daniel Craig in "Sylvia,” the story of the relationship between Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes. She also just wrapped production on the film adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play "Proof,” having finished a successful run at London's Dunmar Theater in the play. This performance as a harassed young woman struggling to care for her eccentric math genius father reunited her with her "Shakespeare in Love” director John Madden, who also directed the film co-starring Anthony Hopkins, Jake Gyllenhaal and Hope Davis. She received an Olivier Award nomination for Best Actress for her work in the play.

Paltrow's recent credits include Neil LaBute's "Possession,” a romance also starring Aaron Eckhart; a cameo appearance in the New Line comedy "Austin Powers 3”; and the critically acclaimed Wes Anderson film "The Royal Tenenbaums,” in which she starred opposite Gene Hackman, Anjelica Huston and Ben Stiller. She also starred in the Peter and Bobby Farrelly-directed "Shallow Hal,” co-starring Jack Black and Jason Alexander. Additional recent credits include roles in Jennifer Jason Leigh and Alan Cumming's "The Anniversary Party,” opposite Cumming, Leigh, John C. Reilly, Kevin Kline and Parker Posey, as well as in "Duets,” a film directed by her father Bruce Paltrow, and in "Bounce,” opposite Ben Affleck. 

Paltrow has appeared in director Anthony Mighella's "The Talented Mr. Ripley,” opposite Matt Damon, Jude Law and Cate Blanchett, and in the hit film "A Perfect Murder,” opposite Michael Douglas and Viggo Mortensen, as well as in the critically acclaimed and international box office hit film "Sliding Doors.” Her other film credits include "Emma,” directed by Douglas McGrath, "Great Expectations,” opposite Ethan Hawke, "The Pallbearer,” opposite David Schwimmer, "Seven,” "View from the Top,” "Moonlight and Valentino,” "Jefferson in Paris,” "Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle,” "Malice,” "Hook” and "Shout.”

She has also received rave reviews in a sell-out run at the Williamstown, Massachusetts Theater Festival production of "As You Like It,” in the role of Rosalind. 

Born in Los Angeles, Paltrow stems from a very close-knit family deeply entrenched in the entertainment industry. Her father, Bruce Paltrow, was a highly successful producer ("St. Elsewhere,” "The White Shadow”) and her mother is the award-winning actress Blythe Danner.
