“I won’t stay down long / Because I’m country strong,” the 37-year-old actress belts out.

    not bad….not bad at all.

  • eggs


  • twin peaks

    Yeah, kind of cheesy.

  • kel

    very nice! I guess she took some singing classes

  • Laila

    not bad

  • Ginger

    This doesn’t sound like her but maybe they modified her voice a bit for the film.

  • Alaia

    @eggs: I’m sure it’s intentional. Most country songs are cheesy. Taylor Swift, anyone?

  • lexy hates bilson

    She doesn’t sound half bad and in that picture of her she looks great!

  • Kaitlyn

    She’s got a good voice… I wasn’t expecting that. Way to go Gwyneth!

  • silk

    @lexy hates bilson: That picture is heavily photoshopped and agree, it doesn’t sound like Gwyneth.

  • amanda

    @Alaia: Not all country songs sound like Taylor Swift wrote them. She’s still a young girl and not really that great of a performer despite the awards.

  • mickey

    ugly chick.

  • Grayson

    It sounds like any other generic country song. They ran her voice through a pretty heavy synthesizer or something. She sounds completely different from Duets.

  • fresh

    They did a nice job on the makeup and airbrushing for that pic.
    Usually she looks like a butterface.

  • Who??


  • lennie

    She can sing. Definitely. Unlike Chinnifer Maniston.

  • Metro

    She sounded good on the Duets soundtrick. Here not as much but I need to hear the rest of the songs.

  • Jane

    If that is her, she sounds fantastic.

  • Zach

    She learned how to play the guitar through Chris Martin and worked with a vocal coach for months. The director said what you hear is 100% their natural voice.

  • Farmer Ted

    @lennie: Anyone can sing better than Maniston. Even horse face Paltrow.

  • CanadaGirl

    Why even attach her name to the song when it sounds NOTHING like her. .
    Here’s a little authentic Goop singing:
    Can we agree that the woman has not presence or singing talent?

  • YUCK…


  • YUCK…


  • Liv

    I like the song but I’m not convinced most of that is Gwyneth. I’ve heard her sing live and she does not sound like that but it’s incredible what they can do in a music studio these days. They can make anyone sound good.

  • truly

    @YUCK…: she is plainer version of her mum. she could be twins with her younger brother.

  • springs_qween

    I think she sounded great.

  • springs_qween


    Are we talking about your gf? Because I thought this was a post about Gwyneth’s singing.

  • Alaia

    @amanda: I’m sorry that you probably thought I was making a generalisation. It was a joke. :)

  • Joyce

    @Liv: But there are many sides to a person’s voice. Many singers (Matt Bellamy comes to mind) change their voice whenever wherever.

  • woah

    i have to say i was surprisingly impressed with her singing…can’t wait to hear Garrett sing as well :)

  • lololol

    @springs_qween: Are you mickey’s girlfriend?

  • North

    @springs_qween: How do you this person has a gf or is straight?

    It’s a post about Gwyneth Paltrow and people can comment on whatever they like about her including her appearance. Some people find her attractive, others don’t.

  • Phil

    Her nose gets bigger every film.

  • Zoz


    Oh yeah Metro she can sing. I heard that smokey Robinson song she did with babyface and she has flow. Seriously!

  • Zoz

    She’s tall and cute….period. She stillll looks 30.

  • Zoz

    She’s tall and cute….period. She stillll looks 30.

  • Connie

    Jealousy people gets you no where.

    Gwyneth sounds great and even better the song actually makes sense and tells a story unlike all that crap that’s just about the beat ……

  • Criss Cross

    @Connie: I doubt people are jealous of this ignorant woman. She seems unhappy most of the time. They should pity her.

    If that’s really her, they went nuts on the auto-tuner.

  • Soffie

    I’ve heard better and I’ve heard worse. I was glad to hear that she is singing for a movie… because if she’s trying to “branch out” into music then it isn’t good enough. BUT it’s definitely good enough for a movie soundtrack. Good for her :)

  • Dakota

    I really like her voice and song. Why all the hate on her?

  • coldplaying

    @Soffie: IA, it’s fine. Nothing spectacular but not awful. Also IA that it sounds extremely different from her vocals on two other movies. I think there was some heavy tinkering done. Your voice doesn’t change this much over a few months even with singing lessons.



  • kate

    like it :) (Y)

  • Mari

    muy lindo, very nice

  • whatever

    @Zoz: She looks like she’s in her 40s not 30s.

  • zhnjg

    oh PLEASE you all know you can’t sing like that. Everyone knows she can sing decently….she was offered a record deal after Duets. This is loads better than any garbage Paris Hilton blather or any number of silly starlets trying to “sing.”

  • conrad

    Sounds great and I think it’s pretty obvious that this is her voice. Delusional, paranoid people need to stop hearing heavy autotune everywhere (and seeing heavy photoshop everywhere, too). It’s rather tiring.

  • Pook

    Tranny does country.

  • Twilight

    @conrad: I think anyone who’s heard her sing before knows she does not sound like this. I happen to like that duet she did like with Babyface but if this post hadn’t had her name in it, I would have never guessed it was Gwyneth Paltrow.

  • incognito

    @conrad: People are not as naive as the fashion and music industry thinks they are. Pragmatic people know auto tune (see also Rihanna) and photo shop gone wild (see her August Vogue cover where they made her look younger than Blake Lively) when they her and see it.
