During her appearance on Netflix’s The Chef Show, the 46-year-old stood alongside cohost Jon Favreau, and asked him and his pal Roy Choi just how they came up with the idea for the program. “I started just filming,” The Avengers director (which Gwyneth was a part of) replied. “We were actually doing it while we were filming Spider-Man. That was the first time.”
“We weren’t in Spider-Man,” the actress interjected. “Yes, we were,” Jon responded “Homecoming. You were in Spider-Man.” What follows is a back-and-forth between the pair that seems like an Abbott and Costello routine.
“No,” the Oscar-winner once said. “I was in Avengers.” Not to worry though, The Jungle Book producer was able to finally convince Gwyneth that she indeed was a part of the film. “Remember, Spider-Man, at the end? And Tom Holland is there, and you’re gonna walk out and do a press conference? I give you the ring? That was Spider-Man,” Jon explained
“Oh, yes!” a shocked Gwyneth responded. “That was Spider-Man? Oh, my God!”
The Shakespeare in Love star has been in the Marvel universe for quite some time now, playing Pepper Potts in seven films, so it’s no surprise things have begun to blend in. And she shouldn’t feel so bad that she had no clue she was in Spider-Man — Mark Ruffalo, who she starred with in The Avengers films, also had a head-scratching moment when he was informed that Captain Marvel herself, Brie Larson, was in 13 Going On 30 with him.
“Oh, my God. That’s amazing. Wow, I didn’t know that,” the 51-year-old said when Entertainment Tonight told him the fun fact. The actor clarified things and explained the pair unfortunately didn’t share a scene.
Well, we’re just glad Gwyneth and Mark remembered to show up on set!
