Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow has an impressive list of credits ranging from 2001's The Royal Tenenbaums to 1998's Shakespeare in Love for which she won the Oscar for Best Actress.

Paltrow is more recently known for her recurring role as "Pepper Potts" in a number of films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, beginning with Iron Man in 2008.


The 46-year-old appeared in seven Marvel Studios productions, including all of The Avengers and Iron Man films, but who's counting? Not Gwyneth Paltrow.

A few weeks ago, the actress was being tasked with zesting an orange on Netflix's The Chef Show and legit forgot she was in Spider-Man: Homecoming during a discussion with the show's host and former co-star, Jon Favreau, who played Happy Hogan and directed Iron Man and Iron Man 2. Favreau explained to Paltrow that his cooking travelogue series began development while the two were working on Homecoming together.

But Paltrow, who is the author of several books and owner of lifestyle company Goop, was confused.

She had absolutely no recollection of being in the movie and had to be reminded of her very brief scene with Tom Holland, who played Peter Parker.

Her hilarious reaction can be seen in the clip below.

Holland, who stars in his second solo superhero movie, Spider-Man: Far From Home, took Paltrow's memory lapse personally.

The young bloke ribbed Paltrow while answering some Marvel-related trivia questions for Popsugar with his Far From Home co-stars, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon.

When Zendaya asked:

"What is 'Pepper' Potts's first name?"

Holland correctly answered:

"Virginia."

He then joked about being heartbroken over Paltrow forgetting she did Homecoming with him.

Holland joked:

"I mean, I've only worked with Gwyneth one time, on 'Spider-Man: Homecoming,' which she doesn't remember. Which still to this day breaks my heart."

After taking pause the 23-year-old actor realized he and Paltrow were also in Avengers: Endgame, reminding him of yet another time she threw inadvertent shade.

"No, actually no, that's not true. One time when we were shooting 'Endgame,' she was in her blue suit, and I was in my Spider-Man suit."
"She came up and she asked me for a photo with me and Robert. And I think she posted it and she said, 'Robert Downey Jr. and myself and this guy'."
"I was just the guy. It was cute."

Twitter thought it was hilarious that Paltrow couldn't keep track of her work.


But fans were still forgiving of the actress.

In her defense, Paltrow's cameo was at the tail end of Homecoming in which she arranged a business meeting to announce Spider-Man as a new addition to the Avengers.




Spider-Man: Far From Home will be the final installment of Phase Three from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in cooperation with Sony Entertainment under their Columbia Pictures label. Sony owns the rights to Spider-Man, but allowed Marvel Studios to borrow the character for The Avengers: Civil War on the condition the favor was returned for Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Spider-Man: Far From Home slings its way into theaters on July 2.

Life is complicated. It's messy. Few, if any things, go according to plan. On top of that, sometimes the way we handle our relationships or our obligations might not be the most healthy one.

You live, you learn... or so the saying goes.

You're hungry one night, so you order food. You select your items, go to place your order, and see that the order has an extra $15 in fees tacked on to it, and that's not even including tip!

Believe it or not, there was a time before delivery services. You can very easily just call the restaurant you want and place the order directly. It's pretty easy–and you and the restaurant get to avoid the middle man.

But delivery services have become so ubiquitous over the years that many of us just put up with it. They're legitimate services but honestly, when you see the final price tag, how could you not feel like you've been totally scammed?
