Gwyneth Paltrow tells Drew Barrymore that she might return to the MCU after Harry Styles casting


Gwyneth Paltrow might be on board to reprise her role as Pepper Potts now that Harry Styles has joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

On Friday, the 49-year-old actress made an appearance on a special edition of Drew’s News and was asked about the One Direction star’s casting as Eros, the brother of Josh Brolin’s supervillain Thanos.

‘This makes me want to dip my toe back into the Marvel Universe,’ Gwyneth told Drew Barrymore, 46, and co-host Ross Mathews, 42.

‘Maybe Pepper Potts can intersect with the Harry Styles of it all,’ Paltrow continued.

After a year of rumors, Styles’ casting was confirmed when he made a surprise post-credits appearance in the upcoming MCU movie Eternals. 

Also known as Starfox in the comic, Eros was named after the god of love and sex in ancient Greek mythology. Drew explained that the superhero’s powers include the ability to ‘stimulate the pleasure centers of anyone within 25 feet’ to which Ross joked, ‘This is what they call typecasting.’

‘How does one in the Marvel Universe interpret a god of love and sex?’ Drew asked. ‘How does that work in the Marvel world?’

‘You just cast Harry Styles,’ Gwyneth replied. ‘You just put him without a shirt on and there you go.’    

Paltrow last played the Stark Industries CEO and wife of Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame and she has left the door open for a potential return to the MCU.

In March 2021, she told People, ‘I think if it was a small part that I could do in like a day or two, I would of course be open to that.’

Meanwhile, the Academy Award winner has primarily shifted her focus from acting to her lifestyle company Goop. 

She appeared on Drew’s News to promote her new Netflix reality series Sex, Love and Goop, in which Paltrow and a team of sex and intimacy experts help couples enhance their relationships through more pleasurable sex.

During her segment, Gwyneth also shared her views on public displays of affection.

Ross said, ‘We’ve seen a lot of Hollywood couples snoogling in public lately.’ He went on to specifically reference the passionate public displays put on by Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian and Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly before asking, ‘GP do you keep it PG?’

Gwyneth indicated that she was not really a fan of PDA. ‘I think I tend to keep it PG in public. I don’t know maybe I should loosen up a little bit and make out in public. Maybe not.’

‘Were you ever that type?’ Barrymore asked. ‘Because I used to totally PDA, like when you’re dating Fabrizio Moretti of The Strokes, I was just constantly making out with him. I couldn’t handle it. I couldn’t get enough. Were you ever PDA?’

‘I also did PDA with Fabrizio,’ Gwyneth joked to laughter from the audience.

‘Here’s my feeling about it. I think there is an age gap or age limit,’ Drew said. 

‘You get to a certain age and here’s me at a dinner table with people PDA-ing,’ she continued as she turned to the side and made a disgusted face.

‘This is your face when you see PDA?’ Paltrow asked. 

Drew said, ‘Yes, now I’m old and jaded and I want to be like, “Pack it up. Move it to the bedroom sister. I am trying to eat.”‘

The Shakespeare in Love star weighed in on a survey that reported that 45% of Americans over 50 believe that sex gets better with age.

She said, ‘I think older sex should be awesome. Like why do we have to pack it all up and go home when we have all of this hopefully healthy life left to live, just with more wrinkles?’ 

Paltrow, who famously introduced the world to the phrase ‘conscious uncoupling’ when she split from ex-husband Chris Martin in 2014, voiced her opinion on being friends with a partner’s exes.  

When Mathews asked if she was friends with her husband Brad Falchuk’s exes, she said, ‘I feel like, I don’t know but you know me I’m all into this conscious uncoupling thing and trying to keep good feeling and good sentiment between people.

‘We don’t have to come to a situation thinking, “Oh it’s an ex so therefore I feel threatened or I’m going to be predisposed to think negatively.” It’s like, what if we just said, “Hey, The more the merrier,” and not create negative feeling and try to create more positive feeling where we can. So that’s what I try to do.’

Ross said, ‘It sounds super simple. It would be beautiful but I understand sometimes it can be uncomfy and sticky and weird.’ 

‘I think that comes out of insecurity,’ Drew added. ‘I do. I have no insecurity with Will [Kopelman] and his wife Allie. In fact, I wish I could be best friends with her but I got some good advice not to be too present in their relationship we found just the right sweet spot. I believe in this.’

Gwyneth said, ‘That’s beautiful Drew. I think it’s amazing that you do that.’

Ross said, ‘I think so too I think it’s beautiful. I do watch a lot of 90 Day Fiance and I will say that you guys are the minority.’ 

He then went on to ask, ‘Do you even know what 90 Day Fiance is, Gwyneth? 

‘Of course,’ Gwyneth said to Ross’s delight. ‘Brad and I over quarantine watched one whole season.’
