Gwyneth Paltrow Talks Casting Couch Experience

Gwyneth Paltrow opens up about her casting couch experience to the November 2010 issue of Elle (with Kate Hudson on the cover).

Here’s what the the 38-year-old actress shared with the mag about trading sexual favors for career advancement:

Have you ever had a casting-couch experience? Yup. When I was just starting out, someone suggested that we finish a meeting in the bedroom. I left. I was pretty shocked. I could see how someone who didn’t know better might worry, “My career will be ruined if I don’t give this guy a blow job!”

How do you feel about the kinds of roles available to women today? Kind of dejected. There’s a lot that’s okay, but there’s little that’s really good, especially for someone my age. Sometimes you find out that something you really liked is going to someone 10 years younger. I find it heartening that Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock have been able to find and create amazing projects.
