Gwyneth Paltrow Will Leave the Marvel Cinematic Universe
For the last decade, Gwyneth Paltrow, who has starred in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Pepper Potts, told Variety she plans on retiring her character after "Avengers: Endgame." Paltrow's character is Iron Man's secretary turned girlfriend and has appeared in multiple films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"I mean, I'm a bit old to be in a suit and all that at this point," Paltrow told Variety. "I feel very lucky that I did it, because I actually got talked into it. I was friend with ['Iron Man' director] Jon Favreau. It was such a wonderful experience making the first 'Iron Man' and then to watch how important it has become to fans."
Paltrow did leave open the possibility of making a cameo or appearing in flashbacks saying, "I feel honored to be a part of something that people are so passionate about. Of course, if they said, 'Can you come back for a day?,' I will always be there if they need me."
Paltrow currently spends most of her time as the CEO of the lifestyle brand Goop.
