Gwyneth Paltrow Net Worth: Gwyneth Paltrow is an American actress, singer and food writer who has a net worth of $140 million dollars. An Academy Award-winning actress and singer, Gwyneth Paltrow began acting in 1990. She is most widely recognized for her roles in "Shakespeare in Love", "Emma", "Proof", and the "Iron Man" franchise. Most recently, she was a guest star on the hit television show, "Glee", and starred in the country music film, "Country Strong".
Born Gwyneth Kate Paltrow on September 27, 1972, in Los Angeles, California, she distinguished herself from the pack of rising young stars in the 1990s garnering a loyal following and a bunch of Oscars and Golden Globes. The first time Paltrow earned critical praise was for her amazingly mature performances in "Se7en" (1995) and "Shakespeare in Love" (1998). Blessed with fair, patrician looks and acute intelligence, Paltrow easily paved her way in British period dramas like "Emma" (1996), while keeping audiences in suspense with occasional comedies like "Shallow Hal" (2001) and richly drawn portraits of complex women like the eccentric sister in Wes Anderson's "Royal Tenenbaums" (2001). Of course, she excelled in mystery dramas and blockbusting movies like "Proof" (2005) and "Iron Man" (2008), respectively. This New York-bred actress also established herself as an admired style icon and portrait of the cool, modern woman who had it all. Be it a successful career or a family with loving husband, she enjoys a fairy-tale-like life. However, she only reached the celestial state after several high-profile relationships with the likes of Ben Affleck and Brad Pitt. Even though sometimes criticized for being a bit too urbane, Gwyneth Paltrow has a great following among 21st century ladies, a fact that can be drawn from her lifestyle website, Goop.com, which has more than 150,000 subscribers. Together with her husband Chris Martin, with whom she married in 2003, Paltrow has homes on both sides of the Atlantic.
