Date of Birth: September 27th 1972
Gwyneth's film debut was a small part in "Shout" (1991), but it wasn't until her role in "Emma" (1996) that she was truly recognised for her Academy Award-winning role.
Paltrow starred in Se7en (1995), opposite Brad Pitt, and Morgan Freeman. The film was hugely successful commercially and critically. Then in 1996 she starred in Emma, where she received strong positive critical acclaim, particularly in Europe, and Asia.
She may be "the ex-fiance of Brad Pitt" to some, but on the big screen she has easily made a name for herself. Academy Award winner for "Shakespeare in Love" (1998), she has also starred in "Sliding Doors" (1998), "Hush" (1998) and "Bounce" (2000).
