The Truth About Gwyneth Paltrow's Famous Parents

Celebrity - News


Actor Gwyneth Paltrow is known for her roles in "Shakespeare in Love" and "Iron Man," among others; she also runs her lifestyle brand, Goop, and is the mom of two children, Apple and Moses. What some people don't know is that Paltrow was born into quite the Hollywood pedigree.

Paltrow was born in Los Angeles to Bruce Paltrow and Blyth Danner. Bruce was a Hollywood bigwig, producing the iconic television series "St. Elsewhere" and "The White Shadow," while Danner is an extremely accomplished stage and film actor who has won two Emmys and a Tony.

In 2002, while in Rome, Italy to celebrate Gwyneth's 30th birthday, Bruce died unexpectedly due to pneumonia and complications of throat cancer. Gwyneth was incredibly close with her father, and she got to work with him on the 2000 road trip film "Duets" before his death.
