Gwyneth Paltrow: 'Contagion' Photo Call in Venice!

Gwyneth Paltrow: 'Contagion' Photo Call in Venice!

Gwyneth Paltrow wears a bright orange Prada dress at the Contagion photo call on Saturday (September 3) at the Palazzo del Cinema in Venice, Italy.

The 38-year-old actress was joined at the 68th Venice Film Festival event by her co-stars Matt Damon and Laurence Fishburne, as well as director Steven Soderbergh.

Matt recently sat down with Access Hollywood and chatted about teaming up with Gwyn, his co-star in 1999′s The Talented Mr. Ripley.

“More so than anybody I’ve ever worked with, she’s got an ability to turn it on and off. Like she can just be talking about anything and then when they say, ‘Rolling,’ it’s like she snaps, she just locks in, in a way that I don’t understand, ’cause I can’t do it,” he shared.

“I’ve worked with a lot of great actors and one thing that happens for me is that a great actor is so good that they pull me right in … that’s how I feel when I do a scene with her, I’m instantly brought in because she takes me there,” he added.

FYI: Gwyneth finished off her look with Nicholas Kirkwood peep toe pumps. Matt is wearing an Alternative Apparel tee.

    It is unfortunate that her co-stars in Contagion – Jude Law, Kate Winslet and Marion Cotillard are absent at the photo call.

  • icefire

    some blondie can wear orange

  • xposed

    She has gorgeous legs. It’s a shame she screwed with her face.

  • Halle

    Where are Marion Cotillard and Kate Winslet?

  • whatever

    Shit, no Kate?
    She’s at the festival why so did she skip this?

  • scarlett

    Is is just me or is GP’s face looking kind of puffy?

  • Jess

    @Polly Willoughby: True, those are the ppl most want to see.

  • Sara


    Marion is filming in LA, but Kate was just in Venice yesterday and left.

  • amanda

    Damn Matt looks hot!!

  • http://computer oh no

    Kate Winslet was promoting CARNAGE and MildredPierce, her role in the other movie may be a tiny part.

  • NYC

    Of course pretentious Paltrow shows up for a movie she’s hardly in.
    Her legs look like a man.

  • oasis

    gawky bird

  • Sydney

    Doesn’t she die pretty early in Contagion (going by the trailer)?
    What else does she have lined up beside this?
    More Glee appearances?

  • freebird

    She looks like a pumpkin.

  • delia

    Where are Marion and Kate? Why Gwyneth? Her role is so small in the film! I wish Soderbergh had cast someone else in that role, so we wouldn’t have to see her usual useless look of really blonde hair, botoxed face, and short dresses to show off her legs.

  • canuck

    The fit of the dress is awkward. Not sure I like this colour on her either.

  • delia

    Also, that dress is not doing her usual slouchy posture an favours!

  • rissly

    Gwynnie, Halloween isn’t until October.

  • mickey

    ugly chick

  • Oh No They Didn’t

    Truck stop hooker meets Prada.
    Not a good look.

  • prisma

    Gwyneth has a nice head of hair. I wish she’d just darken her color a little. She wears it too light and it washes her out.

  • YU..CK..


  • YU..CK..


  • rascal

    Yeah, the dress doesn’t fit and she looks kind of rough in some of the shots. A brighter lipstick shade would have helped.

  • http://ad slig o lambert ^_____^cute

    she coming from 1962

  • urban

    @scarlett: I barely recognized her. She must be using fillers or something.

  • Beck

    Marion’s filming The Dark Knight Rises, Jude Law is doing theatre in London and Winslet has already promoted two films consecutively. She probably didn’t want to hog the limelight.

  • harley

    She is such an elitist ###, but she has some great legs.

  • me

    I have not see one movie that G has been in that I would say she is such a good actress. She is always so dull and depressing in the movies she makes…I don’t see the big deal about her acting skills. I would say they are not there..

  • WoWza

    I actually like the color of the dress on her. oh well, that’s just my opinion

  • Ben

    Matt and Steve will be working on Liberace next with Micharl Douglas.
    No wobbler Laweance Fishburne Quit CSI, Guess Gwyeth isn’working on The Avengers.

  • Marisa

    Kate Winslet had a wedding today, for someone really close to her, so that’s why she left Venice. Anyway I don’t like Gwyneth Paltrow but her face doesn’t look so bad here. Visible crow’s feet and wrinkles on her forehead, which is refreshing considering how she usually comes across as very vain and plastic-like.

  • Tina

    Don’t give a hoot what anyone says about her, I luv mah G. :-)

  • clare

    It’s really shameful to see how much you all are so jealous of a talented and beautiful woman!




    And Gwini has some Killerlegs who are LONG and not short like Manistons orange chickenlegs!

  • Harlo

    I think she looks great.

  • Judith 7

    She’s overrated and overexposed. I’ll send a letter to Hollywood because there are injustice. There are many talentuous actresses, seriously, why they chose her???
    + She’s too pretentious and I hate her ridiculous smile of penguin!

  • so faux

    She’s everywhere cause at 40 she’s trying desperately to brand herself as faux Pop Star one day, an author the next, a cook ……but nobody is buying it.

  • Mel

    Sorry but I’m bored about her.
    Since 2010 I can’t see one magazine without her. She’s everywhere, I’ve seen movies with her and she’s average actress, she’s fake and has no any emotions on her acting, she’s like Barbie.
    I don’t like how she’s exposes always herself on ALL press, seriously there is not one week without her face on one magazine! Stop, it’s BRAINWASHING about your “perfect mom, perfect actress, good cooker, stunning women…”… Brainwashing!

  • Anna Quinn

    Someone’s a little angry Ever consider going on that new reality show h8ters when haters meet the celebs they hate. You would be perfect for it

  • jk

    love this color on her

  • Giovanna

    Of course pretentious Paltrow shows up for a movie she’s hardly in.
