    @ Melanie. Agree with you. Hatred for this woman has reached mass hysteria level. Crazy. Haters can’t think staight anymore. Mark. Ruffalo just recently had nothing but nice things to say about her.

    In my opinion, Gwyneth does not look that bad. There are many actresses that are as slim as she, which appears to be the norm in LA. She does not appear to botox when many of the stars begin botoxing (if that’s a word) in their twenties. I’m sure people have their reasons for not liking her, but I always thought she was a nice young lady. No scandals, never heard of her publicly speaking negative about anyone.

    @Melanie: Co-stars don’t usually bash each other, especially when they’re promoting a movie. They usually have nothing but nice things to say about each other. Apparently the crew of Iron Man wasn’t fond of her because that did make its way into the news.

    She’s hardly ever seen with her husband which may be a good thing since a “marriage” can last a long time if two people who don’t get along keep a distance. Iit looks like she’s taken the diet/cleanse thing to the extreme. She’s starting to look brittle.

    G.P. should not wear white. It completely washes her out and her hair looks like she didn’t bother to wash it before she got dressed up for the event. I think she should go back to the shorter bob she had when she was promoting the first IM film. The longer it is now, the thinner it looks.

    @H.: lol. I gotta agree with you on that one. She really does look horsey in that pic.

    @Getty: Afraid not Getty. They asked Robert about Scarlett as Black Widow and all he said was it was tome Gwyn got into some leather. If she was hard to work with Getty, they would never have given her that small part in the Avengers. She’s also had a career that’s spanned longer than most actresses can try to have. Being a b*tch would certainly not have got her far.

    @Melanie: Well, that’s just not true. Actors that are difficult to work with still get parts if someone like the director or lead likes them or thinks they’re talented enough to go to bat for. In GP’s case, RDJ liked her and went to bat for her to land the part. I don’t recall him being anything less than complimentary about Scarlett so I’m not sure why you think he didn’t like her.

    And yes, rumors of the crew not liking Gwyneth circulated during the filming of Iron Man 2:

    Gwyneth Paltrow is not making any new friends these days.

    The actress recently wrapped filming on “Iron Man 2″ (due to hit theatres in May 2010), where she wasn’t a crew favorite, FOX411 has learned.

    A source says some of the “Iron Man” team had secret hopes of her character being recast, or even killed in the movie, but are resigned to the likelihood that she is locked in as the character Pepper Potts.
    Gwyneth did nothing to make friends with fellow superhero Scarlett Johansson, playing the Black Widow, says the insider, and crew actually preferred to be around her husband, Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin.

    “Gwyneth is extremely cool at work. She’s just a step above professional, too snobby,” the on-set source tells FOX411. “Gwyneth is not friendly to anyone, and tends to make people feel awkward and uncomfortable. She wasn’t outright rude to Scarlett, she just didn’t ever speak to her. Gwyneth went out of her way to avoid Scarlett, and they had zero contact, at Gwyneth’s choosing.”

    The source says that she also put undue pressure on the hair and makeup staff and other members of the crew. “Gwyneth would be very put out if hair and makeup were running behind or things were not on schedule. Usually, nothing was drastically late, but Gwyneth can instantly say something that lets everyone know she is put out,” the source explains. “Much of the crew didn’t mind hanging out with her husband, Chris, but if Gwyneth ever came around, they scattered! Chris is so chill and relaxed and she is just the opposite. Chris has been a crew favorite since the filming of the first movie.”

    And while the insider says there are definitely people on the movie who would love to see her replaced, Pepper Potts is a very important character to Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark. “She is not going anywhere,” sighs the source. “As long as Gwyneth wants to be in the movies, she will be, and the crew has to learn how to handle her.”

    This woman looks really sick particularly in the face.

    And the whole difficult-to-work with thing, I imagine she’s someone who shows up on time and knows her lines but some of the people she’s worked with don’t seem to have liked her. I remember a similar article when Two Lovers came out about her being frosty to the crew. It’s not surprising given how she’s conducted herself in interviews over the years. That personality comes from somewhere.
