Actress Gwyneth Paltrow will be in New York City signing copies of her book of family recipes, “My Father’s Daughter.” Born into a Hollywood family, Gwyneth is the daughter of American actress Blythe Danner (Meet the Parents) and writer, TV/film director and producer Bruce Paltrow (St. Elsewhere).
She won an Oscar for her performance in Shakespeare in Love (though this writer thinks her personal best was the role of Margot Tenenbaum). Her first appearance on the screen was in 1991 in a little-known film starring John Travolta, called Shout, though most will remember seeing her first as young Wendy Darling in the Steven Spielberg directed fantasy, Hook. Once engaged to Brad Pitt in the late 90s (remember their matching hair cuts?), she’s now married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
Time: 12:30 PM
Place: Barnes & Noble – Fifth Avenue. New York, NY.
