Gwen looks great and she sounds pretty good! Better than some of the people on the radio!

# 2

She looks like a tranny in that pic.

# 3

this seems great, I can’t wait to see Leighton and Garrett on screen together!

# 4

She has a good singing voice

Gwyneth has a good voice but not much stage presence. Not sure how she’ll be as a country singer. Her concert scenes don’t seem believable.

# 6

I like all of these actors, but neither leighton nor gwen seem right for this type of character/movie

# 7

There you go, a music career. If that’s her singing without auto-tune, then she’s doing pretty good. Her acting career isn’t going so well, not that she’s not getting roles, she just hasn’t done anything meaningful as a Headliner since before 2000. If she can make a go at singing, why not?
I can’t see her going on tour though, I think that would disrupt her kids lives too much. She only sees her husband every third Saturday when there’s a full moon as it is. if she can make money and a musical reputation by belting out a single her and there, then go for it. .
The movie seems interesting at least, hopefully she’ll get some good press from it. I’m not a fan, but at least she’s doing some different.

32 room apartment in London? This c*nt is the biggest hypocrite. Mass consumption on an obscene level.

Only seeing this for Garrett and Leighton!!!

Is she wearing a wig? I just saw photos of her as a fashion even and her hair looked fine and limp.

Where have you been? She is recently in Iron Man and Iron Man 2. Both of Iron Man movies are huge!

lexy hates bilson @ 09/09/2010 at 8:42 pm

She’s not trying for a music career. She’s did this for a role. Get a clue!

Her country accent sounds terrible.

A little corny but I’m intrigued. Love seeing Tim McGraw onscreen. He’s really talented and unfortunately always overshadowed by a bigger name.

@Jaye: Agree, she’s never go on tour. Her husband’s never home. Someone has to watch the kids.

Farmer Ted @ 09/09/2010 at 8:52 pm

She has great legs. Shame about the horse face.

excellent @ 09/09/2010 at 8:54 pm

Her nose has really gotten more beak-like over the past few years. I don’t remind it being so prominent when she was younger.

@Thumper: Yeah she was in the Iron Man movies, but NOONE went to see those movies because she was in them. Seriously.
She did sing in a movie her Dad did, Duets, and wasn’t bad. She sang with Huey Lewis. I don’t care for her, at all, but I did enjoy that movie (as typically boring as those type of movies are) she wasn’t half bad with her singing. I didn’t bother to listen to this, I am not a country music fan or of her.

ugly chick

Gwynnie does a good British accent but her Southern one needs work.

That is a really bad photo.
She looks like a dude in a wig.

i would lick the soles of gwyneth paltrows feet


This looks like a paint by numbers Oscar bait movie
I may go see it anyway.

wonder why? @ 09/09/2010 at 9:25 pm

Does anyone think this film will do well at the BO..

Other then the Iron Man movie Gwenny has not had much success with her name a the draw..

It will be curious to see what this does at the BO.. I thinks she can’t carry a film. And while some of the other stars are good.. none of them are big BO draws either.. I find it so funny that she is an Oscar winner and after winning it seem her movie choices now are reduced to her being the second fiddle to some man. Same with Charlize and Halle.. Why can’t these women pull in big BO numbers.. OH and don’t forget Kate Winslet.. good actress, but man she is almost BO poisen.. there are so many other example that I could name.. Women in films that have to have a male name in order to garner any BO bank..

I wonder why?

Gwen looks fabulous. Looks like a great role for her, something meaty. And Tim looks wonderful as always. Will see if the kids can keep up with the A list.

I am never any fan for Gwyneth, heck, I could not even spell her name right!
But this is, at least, a great trailer, brought tears to my eyes and kinda made me choke!!

I wish the movie would be a great success!

an alcoholic country singer, how original!

wow, she looks great in the movie.
there goes gwynnie with her tallness and her blondness.

Blah, GP is so boring to watch…honestly, can’t they find people with personality anymore? I would rather see Diane Keaton in this. I don’t care what they look like or how old they are so long as they can act and have some damn personality…

I think Tim and Faith should do a movie together. I bet their on screen chemistry would be as hot as it is in real life.

Hey Thumper. I think Sprite got my point. She wasn’t the Star or Headliner for the Iron Man Movies. It was without question Robert Downey Jr. who carried that movie. There seems to be some Oscar curse where a lot of female Stars are concerned. After the Oscar win they seem to get stuck in a rut. You’d think they’d get all the juicy roles, but somehow, most of the time, it’s not like that.

Sounds and looks like a great movie. Love Tim McGraw. Garrett Hedlund is a cutie. Hmm, perhaps Gwyneth IS the one to do the Goree Girls, others can’t seem to make it happen.

Ugh, that accent…”wutz goin awn’, that’s ma song!!!!” has to be the funniest, dumbest, worst line and delivery i have heard in a while…i spit my ginger ale out through my nose at that part.

*L*A*M*E*…but gwynnie will *TOTALLY* get an oscar nom out of it…all her buddies in the hollywood machine will guarantee it…

it has all the ingredients of an oscar nom performance, without being a great role (and damn did gwynnie know that when she read the script…)
hmm, she sangs, she plays three chords on the gee-tar, she uses a sorta southern drawl, she pretends she is an alcoholic (but a clean one, who just looks dumb, is well dressed, but does not get all dirty by throwing up on herself and such, like Nic Cage in Leaving Las Vegas), and lordy she’s a star who falls on hard times, but with the love of a good country man who thanks she is an angel and her faith in the lord it’s all gonna be alright down at the Grand Ole Oprey, yessiree!

perfect mix for an oscar nom…totally lame…everyone will paint it as Gwynblech’s big comeback…and it will be great to see her not win this time as she sits there (alone, of course, in the audience…maybe her mom will be her date) and pretends to be happy for whoever wins.

“wutz goin awn’, that’s ma song!?!?!?!”

LOL…worst.line.ever. (uttered in worst Gwynblech accent ever)

Well done Gwyn… go to hell haters!!

…Looks corny and contrived, so it should win her another award. The public always falls for this type of predictable tripe. Case in point, The Blind Side!

Did she really sing? Wow, she’s good. The movie looks very good too :)

That looks great!

this looks like a lifetime movie

Looks good enough to watch on DVD. Gwyneth has been miscast. She’s too much the ice princess to be an underdog. Goop, anyone? Somebody with more warmth and charisma, someone more like Sandra Bullock or even Faith Hill, would’ve made this movie work.

This movie looks so boring! I would only see it for Garrett Hedlund. From his clips, he is a much better than Gwyenth & Tim. Tim McGraw sucks at acting, Blindside did well because of Sandra Bullock.. He should stick to his singing only.

cool, now that I’ve seen the trailer I don’t need to see the film!! They gave it out all! Not that it would be hard to guess anyway: former successful star becomes an alcoholic, tries to get back on her feet&her career, her bad bad bad husband wants to milk her talent some more, while he’s aiming for the young, hot, untalented singer&the young singer/song writer, who of course is in it for the MUSIC and NOT for the MONEY (duh, he’s an artist!!) inspires her&she gives a huge concert&resurrects her career!! how, just..HOW original is this idea?!! I’m amazed!!!!

maggiexao @ 09/10/2010 at 9:18 am

The biggest talent on that movie will be GARRETT !!

I like gwyneth, but thats just not her role…. Faith Hill would have been obvious but way better…

The hate directed toward Gwyneth is ridiculous. For the people saying ‘no one went to see the Iron Man movies because she was in them’ – get real. They were both box office hits. And did you even WATCH Iron Man/Iron Man 2? She is FANTASTIC as Pepper Potts. This movie looks interesting – not sure about Gwyn as a country singer but I won’t judge until I see it. She’s a very good actress, and she’s pretty. If you hate her and think she’s the ugliest actress ever, why bother commenting?

I love as an actor Garrett
I discovered the singer and I love his voice!

sorry for my English

the truth @ 09/10/2010 at 1:37 pm

She can realy sing !

i hope this movie does well with the critics and if it does and it picks up nominations and stuff i can’t wait to hear what the haters have to say. i truly believe that a majority of these haters are jolie-pitt fans, i can’t believe that a couple who does so much good in the world can attract so many mean spirited fans. i wonder if the saying “birds of feather” applies in this situation..

Everyone is allowed to comment here. It’s not a fan site. They don’t restrict negative opinions.

Iron Man types of comic/action movies do well regardless of who they cast in the supporting female roles. Just look at Star Wars and Transformers. They would have been hits with or without Natalie Portman or Megan Fox although Portman and Fox are probably more popular with the 18-34 yr old male demographic that flock to those films.

As for being a good actress/pretty, that’s subjective. Some people think she is, others don’t agree

lissa smitt @ 09/10/2010 at 5:37 pm

Gwyneth’s dad did direct her in a musical with Scott Speedman and
the Eagles guy…as her father…And she did really well in that movie..

Jokergurl @ 09/10/2010 at 6:24 pm

This reminds of Crazy Heart, which was really good. Gwyneth can sing, she held her own against Huey Lewis in Duets. I love Tim McGraw’s singing but I really enjoy his acting too, he’s quite good.


Maybe Gwineth thought that playing an alcoholic country singer may help her to win anoher academy award .. Just like Jeff Bridges last year.

I prefer the original title – Love Don’t Let Me Down. Country Strong is a crappy alternative.

I never got the fuss over Gwyneth Paltrow or her acting, but I must say that from the trailer, she seems really great in character. Her hair doesn’t quite look right though. Don’t country singers love big hair or is that just a stereotype? Is that really her singing voice? It’s really good as country.

BEAUTIFUL ACTRESS @ 09/15/2010 at 2:46 pm

She is very pretty and talented. I cannot stand Michelle Williams
and how she tries to act like Gwyneth. Gwyneth Paltrow didn’t
have to TRAP Brad Pitt now did she? Gwyneth got successful
because she is a real hollywood star and didn’t have to get
pregnant on purpose to get attention and become very famous.
Gwyneth won the affections of Brad Pitt because he wanted to have
a relationship with her not because he felt sorry for her.

Thank you for this page. Thats all I may say. You most surely have constructed this world wide web into something speciel. You clearly know what you are working on, youve taken care of so many bases.see you

i remember when i saw Garret.. he is so tall! it was everything crazy.. such a normal and nice guy ..
