Actress mother Blythe Danner and director father Bruce Paltrow didn't encourage Gwyneth Paltrow the skip university and go into the family business until she appeared opposite mom in "Picnic" at the Williamstown Theater Festival at 18. She scored her first role in 1992's "Cruel Doubt" miniseries. A small part in "Flesh and Bone" in '93 made her one to watch. Then came a period more defined by romancers than roles as she took up with Brad Pitt, after playing his wife in "Se7en," and, after their engagement dissolved in December 1996, Ben Affleck. In 1999, she proved she was more than arm candy with an Oscar win for "Shakespeare In Love" and had the pick of the project litter ("The Talented Mr. Ripley," "Bounce," "The Royal Tenenbaums," "Sylvia," "Proof"). In 2002, she went from groupie to girlfriend with Coldplay's Chris Martin and by the end of the following year the couple was married and expecting their first child. Daughter Apple was born in 2004 and she became a sister in 2006 when Moses was born. The "Ironman" star has proven she can also sing by guesting on "Glee," leading "Country Strong" and dueting with Cee-Lo at the 2011 Grammys. She ventured into “how does she do it all” territory when she spearheaded her cooking and lifestyle website GOOP and authored her first cookbook, 2011’s "My Father’s Daughter." People's 2013 "World's Most Beautiful" winner "consciously uncoupled" with Martin in March 2014.
