Gwyneth Paltrow Biography
Gwyneth Paltrow was born in 1973 in Los Angeles, the daughter of noted film
director Bruce Paltrow and Tony award-winning actress Blythe Danner. She lived
in LA for most of her childhood, where she first tried her hand at acting.
When Gwyneth was 11, the family moved to Massachusetts so her father could
work in summer stock productions in the Berkshires. It was in Massachusetts
where Gwyneth first started her serious acting. She also spent some time in
her early teens in Talavera de la Reina, and can now speak fluent Spanish.
She attended the Spence School in New York City, New York. In 1990, she graduated
and decided to go back home to the West Coast for college.
In 1990 Gwyneth graduated from The Spence School in New York, NY. She moved
to California where she attended the University of California in Santa Barbara,
majoring in Art History. In 1991, she quit the University of California and
began to actively pursue a career in acting.
She made her film debut with a small part in Hook (1991) playing young Wendy
opposite Robin Williams playing grown-up Peter Pan. But, it was her performance
in the title role of Emma Woodhouse in Emma (1996) that led to her being offered
the role of Viola in Shakespeare in Love (1998).
After a role in the thriller Seven in 1995, in which she played Brad Pitt's
wife, she began dating the Sexiest Man Alive. Their relationship landed them
on covers from the sleaziest tabloids to the media mainstream. She and Brad
were engaged, but the engagement was soon broken reportedly by Gwyneth. She
stated neither she nor Pitt felt that they could pursue their careers and
maintain a happy marriage. Although they remain friends, the relationship
took its toll on Gwyneth. "It really changed my life. When we split up, something
changed, permanently, in me. My heart sort of broke that day, and it will
never be the same." Gwyneth was invited to Brad's wedding to Jennifer Aniston
but refused to attend.
In 1996, Gwyneth was confirmed as the next "Calvin Klein" model. In 1998,
she took a role in "Shakespeare in Love," a film that would confirm her
as one of Hollywood's best actresses. She later won an Oscar for Best Actress
for the role. She is also one of Hollywood's busiest actresses, signed on
to no less than 15 movies since 1998.
Off the screen, Gwyneth seems genuine and sincere. Although, Movieline magazine
ranked Gwyneth as the most "stuck-up" actress in Hollywood. Regardless, she
is beloved by fans and critics alike. Her high-profile romances have continued,
this with "Shakespeare" costar Ben Affleck. Although the romance has officially
cooled, tabloids can't keep quiet that the two are actually still involved.
Gwyneth's most recent projects include, her role as Maud Bailey in upcoming
film, Possession. Following, she will appear in The Royal Tenenbaums, Shallow
Hal, and in 2002, A View from the Top. This young beauty certainly has a veiw
from the top, and is loving what she sees. You can be sure to see a lot more
of her in the future.
