A career in the spotlight seemed the obvious choice for the daughter of a television producer and an actress. Gwyneth even dropped out of college to pursue a career in acting. In 1990, she made her stage debut. A year later, she was given a part in the film Shout, starring John Travolta.

In the same year, she played young Wendy in the Peter Pan movie Hook, directed by her godfather Steven Spielberg. A number of smaller parts followed, but her role in the movie Se7en in 1995 was the big breakthrough – even though it was her relationship with co-star Brad Pitt that instantly brought her international fame. Her next relationship, and on-and-off affair with actor Ben Affleck, was also broadly discussed in the media. The many large and small movies in which she played parts, finally resulted in recognition for her work. At 26 years old, she even earned an Oscar for her role in Shakespeare in Love (1998). After that, things started to deteriorate.

The blond actress had trouble coping with the pressures of having won an Oscar, and she now admits to having chosen several wrong movies. In 2008, she made a comeback in the blockbuster Iron Man. In the meantime, she married Coldplay lead singer, Chris Martin, with whom she has two children. Although she took a step back from her career to make time for her family, Gwyneth has not been sitting still. She played and sang in various movies and TV shows, including Glee, and published a number of macrobiotic cookbooks. She also became the face of several famous perfume and fashion brands. In other words, Gwyneth is a very busy lady, but you can admire her look-alike at Madame Tussauds!
