The ‘Avenger: Endgame’ actress names the 2001 critically-panned romantic comedy fronted by comedian Jack Black as her ‘least favorite’ film in her catalogue.
AceShowbiz –Gwyneth Paltrow‘s 2001 comedy “Shallow Hal” is her “least favourite” movie she’s worked on.
The Oscar-winning actress opened up on her career in a ‘BFF Test’ sponsored by Netflix’s “The Goop Lab” – which gives an inside look at the “Avengers: Endgame” star’s celebrated lifestyle brand.
Gwyneth was partnered with her assistant and close friend, Kevin Keating, and when he was asked to name his pal’s “least favourite performance,” Keating immediately guessed “Shallow Hal”, as the star added, “Exactly.”
“I’m not sure who told you to do that one. But it wasn’t me. Not around for that,” said Keating.
Gwyneth added, “That was before your time, see what happened…”
The actress appeared as Rosemary in the Farrelly brothers’ movie, which was panned at the time of release for promoting “fat discrimination.”
In the film, Jack Black plays the superficial Hal, who only falls for physically beautiful women. But after hypnosis, he sees only inner beauty and falls in love with the obese Rosemary.
Gwyneth played the physical ideal seen only by Hal, and wore a bodysuit for her performance as the plus-size character Rosemary.
