We wouldn’t blame Gwyneth Paltrow, the lone female star of the first Iron Man film, for directing some ‘tude at her sequel co-star Scarlett Johannson. When you’re stuck basically babysitting Robert Downey Jr.’s character and being buttoned up as Gwynnie is in the film, and your younger, more voluptuous co-star gets to wear a shiny, tight catsuit, you might get a complex. During filming, it was rumored that the pair’s relationship was chilly and then at the film’s premiere last week, they apparently refused to pose together.
But Paltrow has refuted the claims, telling People that it sounds like people just like making up stories about seeing two women fight. “They’re pitting you against each other and I just think, ‘Why do we need to make a problem between women?’ I think that’s the part that’s lame,” she said. “I adore Scarlett. I loved having her on set. She is really funny. She swears a lot. She has a dirty sense of humor. She loves to cook. She’s like a girl after my own heart.” Well that’s nice. Maybe this mean’s there will be a GOOP newsletter guest-edited by Scarlett soon! We can hope.
