Gwyneth Paltrow in 'Country Strong' -- FIRST LOOK

Check out this sneak peek of Gwyneth Paltrow and Tim McGraw‘s upcoming Nashville-set drama Country Strong, in theaters on Dec. 22.

The film is helmed by Shana Feste, who directed 2009′s The Greatest starring Carey Mulligan, Pierce Brosnan and Susan Sarandon.

In the movie, Garrett Hedlund plays a rising young singer/songwriter who becomes tangled with a country singer (Paltrow). As they embark on a new tour with her husband/manager (McGraw) and a beauty queen turned singer (Leighton Meester), romantic shennanigans and long forgotten demons threaten the whole spittoon.

    Must be a slow news day.

  • elfin

    She looks like Faith Hill there.

  • always

    Gwyneth has a beautiful smile when she uses it. She usually looks so miserable.

  • ggfan

    Enough of the plain Jane.
    Give us Leighton!

  • peanut

    Is that her real hair or a wig?

  • Chris

    Jan Brady does country.

  • jj fans

    Are there any pics of Leighton Meester?
    She is beautiful and has a part in this.

  • truly

    those are poor quality photos.

    Great legs. Shame about the horse face.

    @peanut: I think it’s a wig. It’s a nice look for her. I prefer Gwyneth with longer hair. She doesn’t have the type of face (beautiful or very interesting) that can really pull off shorter hair.

  • yawn


  • whatever

    Gwyneth has a decent voice. This might be good.
    Not sure.

  • mickey

    ugly chick.

  • Movie Watcher

    Will this get released?
    It sounds direct-to-DVD.

  • Santos

    I still like her films but Paltrow has gotten very masculine looking as she’s aged.

  • tash

    She looks like a tranny.

  • just saying

    These are not new pictures.

    Is Gwyneth playing Leighton’s mother?

  • Jeff

    @Santos: She looks like a dude in a wig.

  • repeat

    I have a bad feeling about this one.
    It sounds like a clunker.

  • twin peaks

    The director’s last film did not do well. Maybe this one will fare better.
    Gwyneth needs better roles. Her Iron Man gig is not going to last forever and she doesn’t seem to be on the first look list for scripts.

    OH . Country ? I still don’t know what is Chris doing with that girl . . .

  • LOL

    Taylor Swift’s mom?

  • @12

    Really? While she was dating Brad, she had short hair so apparently one person thought it was hot. I believe she also had short hair in two movies. Anyhow, I guess you speak for everyone *rolls eyes*

  • uh

    I know you want as many comments as possible JJ, but can someone block Kaz/Slig, that troll is annoying!

  • jaye

    I can think of at least 5 Country singers who could do this role and be believable. Go figure, a country female singer playing a country female singer; what a concept.

  • Jessica Lynn

    Why didn’t they cast Faith Hill? at least she could sing the music?

  • Miss Q

    I can’t wait to see this movie! I love the look of the show so far and I used to live in Nashville! I know the girl who made the guitar straps at Alchemy Design! It is really exciting to see the work of a friend coming to life on the big screen! Check out her other straps at
