Gwyneth Paltrow Says Fans Would Be ‘Shocked’ To Learn The Number Of Major Hollywood Roles She Turned Down To Raise Apple And Moses


There are all sorts of stories in Hollywood about the roles that certain actors almost played. We know that Will Smith was almost Neo in The Matrix and Robert De Niro recently spoke about how he could have played Hanibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs. It turns out Gwyneth Paltrow actually has several stories like that, as she says fans would be shocked at the number of roles she has turned down over the years.

Speaking with Today, Paltrow says that she has been offered “a lot” of roles over the years which she decided to turn down because she was playing the role of mother to her children, Apple and Moses. She decided that was more important at the time to raise her kids than anything she could do on screen. The Oscar winner explained…

There were a lot. I mean, it’s funny, because it didn’t feel like a sacrifice to me at the time. But if I look back at it through a cultural lens, I mean, wow, if people knew I didn’t do this movie or that movie, they’d be quite shocked.
