You’d think if you were in a movie, you’d remember the experience ... perhaps unless you’re Gwyneth Paltrow.
The actor recently commented on an Instagram post by Man Repeller that featured Zendaya wearing a fuchsia breastplate top by Tom Ford ― her look at the 2020 Critics’ Choice Awards. Paltrow also wore the breastplate on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar February 2020 issue.
In the comment, Paltrow quipped: “Thank God I can say I have something in common with Zendaya.”
The irony, however, is that the two have a lot in common. They starred together in the 2017 film “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” Paltrow reprised her role of Pepper Potts, which she originated in the 2008 film “Iron Man.”
Writer Ira Madison III commented on Paltrow’s post, racking up more than 300 likes from other Instagrammers, stating that fact:
After the account Comments By Celebs shared a screenshot of that exchange, Paltrow doubled down on her forgetfulness and commented: “WE ARE???”
Considering the sheer volume of Marvel crossover films that exist, it’s not that shocking that Paltrow can’t remember which ones she’s starred in.
However, it appears “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is one of the films that she often forgets. Paltrow awkwardly told co-star Jon Favreau in a bit the two did together back in June for Favreau’s Netflix series that she did not remember being in the movie.
Oh, Gwyneth. We don’t deserve you and your mind.
