IRON MAN

A Hollywood legend in the making, GWYNETH PALTROW (Pepper Potts) has defied the odds by remaining one of today's most prolific and celebrated actors in the ever-changing film industry. A testament to her undeniable talent, her role in "Shakespeare in Love” catapulted her into awards stardom with Best Actress honors at the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards, and Academy Awards®.

Paltrow recently completed production in James Gray's romantic drama "Two Lovers” with Joaquin Phoenix.

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 costarring Anthony Hopkins, Jake Gyllenhaal and Hope Davis. She received an Olivier Award nomination for Best Actress for her work in the play, as well as a Golden Globe nomination for her work in the film.

Paltrow was also recently seen in "Running with Scissors,” the adaptation of Augusten Burroughs' novel directed by Ryan Murphy. She also makes a cameo in "Infamous” by "Emma” director Douglas McGrath, as a Peggy Leeesque nightclub chanteuse.

She also starred in the Peter and Bobby Farrelly-directed "Shallow Hal,” co-starring Jack Black and Jason Alexander.

Reilly, Kevin Kline and Parker Posey, as well as "Duets,” a film directed by her father Bruce Paltrow, and Miramax Films' "Bounce” opposite Ben Affleck. Paltrow has appeared in director Anthony Minghella's "The Talented Mr. Ripley” opposite Matt Damon, Jude Law and Cate Blanchett, and the hit film "A Perfect Murder” opposite Michael Douglas and Viggo Mortensen, as well as 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, "Se7en,” "A View from the Top,” "Moonlight and Valentino,” "Jefferson in Paris,” "Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle,” "Malice,” "Hook” and "Shout.”
