Gwyneth Paltrow Adorably Forgot She Was in this ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Scene

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is such a vast realm that anyone can simply get lost in it. Each of the characters gets their own storyline, which delves deeper into their lives. While die-hard fans would know the superheroes by heart, there are some who simply can’t distinguish who’s who in the numerous films. This is arguably understandable because it’s just hard to keep track of the movies that were released for more than a decade.

As Pepper Potts

Gwyneth Paltrow played Pepper Potts in Marvel films

Don’t feel bad. You are certainly not alone who has this confusion. That’s because even some of the celebrities who starred in the films have a hard time remembering where their characters have appeared — at least for Gwyneth Paltrow.

The Goop founder is known for playing Pepper Potts, Tony Stark’s secretary-turned-Mrs. in the MCU. She was introduced in what started it all, “Iron Man,” which premiered in 2008, at the same time as Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau, and had since appeared in many Marvel movies.

Potts is not a superhero but should never be underestimated. The role is a driving force behind the success of the Stark Industries and was actually one of the nice persons who stuck with Tony during dire times. It is safe to say that Gwyneth’s character is as important as the others — so much so that she has appeared in other films, apart from the “Iron Man” trilogy, that didn’t even star her on-screen partner.


With a lot of superhero films on her impressive credit, it is pretty hard to keep a note on everything she has appeared in, considering she has her own business to manage while filming.

Confusion is bound to happen at one point and for Gwyneth, this came quite awkwardly yet adorably when she was a guest at Jon’s Netflix series “The Chef Show.” So the 46-year-old was busy trying to help with the preparation of the ingredients when she asked the director what the idea behind the show was.

The actress was shocked upon realizing what his co-star was talking about

Although Jon said he wasn’t sure, he, later on, shared tidbits about the program and explained that it was something that suddenly came up while they were filming “Spider-Man: Homecoming” together. Wait, what? Gwyneth’s face suddenly changed expression, like she didn’t know what the man was talking about.

Jon reminded his guest that they appeared in the 2017 picture, but Gwyneth didn’t believe him. The 52-year-old then went on to argue with her, to which she answered that she was in “Avengers.” To finally settle the debate once and for all, he explained the scene where Potts was shown.

The brief appearance of Happy and her character happened at the end of the film when the woman was going to hold a press conference, while the driver/bodyguard will hand her the ring.

Like a lightbulb that lit, Gwyneth finally realizes that it was indeed from THAT film and not some other that she was thinking about. Don’t worry if you let out a chuckle for that hilarious incident, the actress too had a good laugh about it when she remembered.
