The MCU actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who first came into prominence after starring in movies like Seven, A Perfect Murder, and more, soon catapulted her fame with phenomenal projects like Shakespeare in Love.

However, despite delivering more than impressive performances in the film industry, Paltrow lost her charm sooner than others. Getting pushed out of the spotlight in the mid-2000s, Paltrow mentioned how her fame got significantly reduced over the years. Thus, after appearing in MCU movies alongside Robert Downey Jr., the actress purposefully dissected her filmography during an interview.

Being her personal critic, Gwyneth Paltrow thus segregated her filmography into two polar opposite categories. Naming one category, her sheer dedication to stagecraft, the actress named the other category as money-making movies. Thus, while dissecting her films, Paltrow recalled her 2003 rom-com View from the Top starring Mark Ruffalo, and shared some opinions on the same.

Thereafter, the MCU actress mentioned navigating into advertisements and giving up on doing films just for the sake of money. Gwyneth Paltrow revealed how she became the face of Estee Lauder after she stopped making  “sh*t films” like View from the Top.
