Robert Downey, Jr. Recruited Gwyneth Paltrow for 'Avengers'

Gwyneth Paltrow is positively glowing as she leaves The Montage Hotel after having lunch with gal pals at Scarpetta restaurant on Tuesday (April 17) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 39-year-old actress, who played the role of Pepper Potts in the Iron Man series, was convinced to appear in The Avengers by her co-star Robert Downey, Jr., according to director Joss Whedon.

“Pepper, this was really Robert’s thing. He pushed hard … ,” Joss told the Los Angeles Times. “He really thought Gwyneth would bring something great to the table, and we all thought so as well, but he was the one who convinced her to come and do it.”

Great idea, how can they do a movie with Tony Stark and not having Pepper Potts in it. Those two together are delicious to watch!

# 4

She doesn’t look glowing at all.
Quite the opposite.

# 5

She looks more and more like a man as she ages.

Sanctimonious windbag that is Goop. She is not even relevant in the film business anymore.

# 7

She looks very plain without makeup but she does have a nice smile.

# 9

For a while I thought she got a boob job but looking at her bra-less in these pics, probably not.

She’s a manly Jan Brady.

I hope I look like that when I’m 39, she looks great!

I rather have Pepper/Tony scenes than Black Widow / Tony scenes. ScarJo never brings much to scenes other than her cleavage and her silicon lips. And she is completely annoying and full of herself in interviews.

No Tony with Pepper, Robert is right!
And she looks amazing in these pics.

Oops! Meant “No Tony without Pepper” of course!

She really resembles her cousin from The L Word in those shots. They’re both kind of plain and butch looking although Gwyneth hides it better when she’s made up for the red carpet.
