Gwyneth Paltrow stars in "The Avengers" as Virginia "Pepper" Potts, reprising the role from Marvel's "Iron Man 2" and "Iron Man," which grossed more than $585 million worldwide at the box office.

Paltrow recently delighted television audiences with a recurring role in FOX's hit comedy "Glee," for which she won an Emmy Award in 2011. On the big screen, she was also seen in Steven Soderbergh's "Contagion," starring Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslet and Jude Law, and the drama "Country Strong," opposite Tim McGraw. Directed by Shana Feste, the latter film was shot in America's music capitol, Nashville, Tennessee, and features original country songs sung by Paltrow.

A Hollywood legend in the making, Gwyneth Paltrow has defied the odds by remaining one of today's most prolific and celebrated actors in the ever changing film industry. A testament to her undeniable talent is her role in "Shakespeare in Love," which catapulted her into awards stardom with Best Actress honors at the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild, and the Academy Awards. Her career has been studded with both critically acclaimed independent films, and studio blockbusters that have made her a fixture for this generation's film audience.

Paltrow was recently seen in James Gray's romantic drama "Two Lovers," opposite Joaquin Phoenix, and in her brother Jake Paltrow's directorial debut, "The Good Night," as the wife of a former pop star who's been reduced to writing jingles. The film also starred Penelope Cruz and Danny Devito.

Paltrow's film credits include "Proof," the film adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, which she also performed at London's Donmar Warehouse Theatre. Her performance as a harassed young woman struggling to care for her eccentric math genius father reunited her with her "Shakespeare in Love" director, John Madden, who also directed the film co-starring Anthony Hopkins, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Hope Davis. She received an Oliver Award nomination for Best Actress for her work in the play, as well as a Golden Globe nomination for her work in the film.

Paltrow was also seen in "Running with Scissors," an adaptation of Augusten Burroughs' novel directed by Ryan Murphy. She also made a cameo appearance as a Peggy Lee-esque nightclub chanteuse in "Infamous," from "Emma" director Douglas McGrath.

Other film credits include "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow," an adventure film co-starring Jude Law and Angelina Jolie; "Sylvia," the Focus Features film that tells the story of the relationship between Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes; Neil LaBute's "Possession," a romance also starring Aaron Eckhart; a cameo appearance in the New Line comedy "Austin Powers 3"; and the critically acclaimed Wes Anderson film "The Royal Tennenbaums," in which she starred opposite Gene Hackman, Anjelica Huston and Ben Stiller, as well as Luke and Owen Wilson. She also starred in the Peter and Bobby Farrelly-directed "Shallow Hal" co-starring Jack Black and Jason Alexander.

Additional credits include roles in Jennifer Jason Leigh and Alan Cumming's "The Anniversary Party" opposite Cumming, Leigh, John C. Reilly, Kevin Kline, and Parker Posey, as well as "Duets," a film directed by her father, Bruce Paltrow, and Miramax Films' "Bounce" opposite Ben Afleck. Paltrow has appeared in director Anthony Minghella's "The Talented Mr. Ripley" opposite Matt Damon, Jude Law, and Cate Blanchett, and the hit film "A Perfect Murder" opposite Michael Douglas and Viggo Mortensen, in addition to the critically acclaimed and international box office hit film "Sliding Doors."

Her other film credits include "Emma"; "Great Expectations" opposite Ethan Hawke; "The Pallbearer" opposite David Schwimmer; "Se7en"; "A View from the Top"; "Moonlight and Valentino"; "Jefferson in Paris"; "Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle"; "Malice"; "Hook"; and "Shout."

Paltrow's first role was her remarkable performance in the critically acclaimed "Flesh and Bone" opposite Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid. She has also received reve reviews in a sell-out run of the Williamstown Theatre Festival's production of "As You Like It," in the role of Rosalind.

Paltrow recently made her directorial debut, co-writing and co-producing (with her friend Mary Wigmore) a short film, "Dealbreaker."

Born in Los Angeles, California, where she spent the first eleven years of her life, Paltrow comes from a very close-knit family deeply entrenched in the entertainment industry. Her late father, Bruce Paltrow was a highly successful producer ("St. Elsewhere," "The White Shadow") and her mother is the award-winning actress Blythe Danner. While Paltrow and her younger brother, Jake lived in Los Angeles, she attended St. Augustine by the Sea (now known as Crossroads).

Subsequently, her family moved to New York and she graduated from the Spence School before enrolling in the University of California at Santa Barbara to major in art history. She quickly learned that college life was not something she felt committed to and withdrew from school despite her father's strong recommendation to remain. It wasn't until he caught her moving performance in the Williamstown Theatre Festival production of "Picnic," starring opposite her mother and Tony Goldwyn, that he lent his support in her pursuit of an acting career.

Paltrow currently resides in New York City and London.
