“I was in the middle of a terrible breakup [with Pitt] and the idea of going to England and being far from home just seemed … I didn’t even read it,” Paltrow said. “I was just like, ‘I can’t read anything right now. I’m having a really hard time.'”

Thankfully, Paltrow did get around to reading that script a few months later and the rest is Hollywood history. Not only did the role snag her an Academy Award in 1999, it thrust Paltrow into the mainstream. Without this critically acclaimed hit, there’d be no Goop as we know it today — or characters like Pepper Potts, Holly Holliday, and Marge Sherwood. And wouldn’t that be a shame?
