Gwyneth Paltrow may play Pepper Potts in the super successful Iron Man franchise but she didn't know a thing about the superhero Marvel comic book before the film.
The 40-year-old Oscar-winning actress confessed that the comic book world was all very new to her until she was approached for the role.
She admitted, "I had never even heard of Iron Man until I got the call, and I didn't grow up reading comics as a child. "
She continued, "I never would have thought of myself being in a comic book and a superhero movie. But now I'm so happy that it's been my main job for the past six years.
"Iron Man 3 is definitely Pepper's most fun one to do of all the roles so far. It's been a great journey playing her."
It's that suprising to heat the Gwyneth's role has the seal of approval from husband Chris and their kids, Apple and Moses.
Gwen said, "Chris and the kids are a fan of it. I was surprised myself because normally I struggle to follow the plot on paper (who gets shot, who dies, it all gets very confusing) but the movie plays so well. It really was so much fun to watch."
