Gwyneth Paltrow- MCU star who stars as Pepper Potts appeared on a 2019 episode of Netflix’s “The Chef Show,” which stars Jon Favreau (who plays Happy Hogan in the MCU and also directed/executive produced the first two “Iron Man” movies) and chef Richard Choi. She was reminded of her appearance in “Homecoming.”
She forgot that Tony proposed to her in THAT movie
While cooking, with Favreau and Choi, Paltrow said that she was in “Avengers” and insisted that they didn’t appear in the 2017 movie. Favreau went on to remind his co-star that their characters appeared at the end of the movie when Tony Stark offered Peter Parker a new suit and a spot in the Avengers, which he turned down. Afterward, Tony spoke during a press conference and proposed to Pepper.
Tom Holland reacted to Gwyneth Paltrow forgetting that she appeared in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. “I mean, I always know what movie I’m in,” Holland said during a new interview with GQ Style. Holland, known for his role as Spider-Man/Peter Parker in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, went on to say that in Paltrow’s defense, there’s so much secrecy surrounding the movies and oftentimes actors aren’t given much context or details when filming.
“You could be on set and you might not know… who you’re fighting or who the superhero on your left is…” –Tom Holland
“I mean, you could be on set and you might not know what planet you’re on or who you’re fighting or who the superhero on your left is,” he said. “But what’s nice for me is that at the end of the day, I gr
ew up a massive fan of these movies. So for me to get the chance to work on them but also kind of be in the dark as to the story, I can still kind of enjoy the film just as a fan, you know?”
“She is the most focused person you’ll ever meet” –Jon Favreau
Favreau was sympathetic to Paltrow’s confusion when asked about it in a separate interview. “She is the most focused person you’ll ever meet, and the most talented actor you’ll ever work with.” Favreau revealed.
“And it’s very in the moment and very authentic and emotional, her portrayal. And I think that’s part of why the MCU has been so successful is she really grounded and anchored it with Robert. But I know with Gwyneth, she also doesn’t dwell on or look at her performances in the past. She’ll show up at the premiere, she’ll show up on set. She doesn’t like to linger on playback or see things. Some actors like me, I tend to like to look at the screen and watch what I did and come back, but she very much trusts the director. She does the work; she sees the film at the premiere, and then she moves on to other things. And also, I have to say, the Marvel universe over these past eleven years is very convoluted,” Favreau added. “You know, all the different storylines and characters intersect. I could understand how it could sometimes be confusing.”
