Gwyneth Paltrow is enjoying an avalanche of attention these days, testing her singing chops onscreen and onstage. The 38-year-old actress and Academy Award winner now pairs her voice with Cee Lo Green, Vince Gill, The Muppets, Matthew Morrison and the cast of "Glee."
At the 83rd Academy Awards, Gwyneth Paltrow crooned the Oscar-nominated "Coming Home" from "Country Strong," not long after telling red-carpet interviewer Tim Gunn (of "Project Runway") that she would like to do a duet with Jay-Z. "I think we'd be a good combination," she said.
Having made harmonic headlines for her "Glee" cover of Cee Lo Green's "F You" (remixed for general audiences as "Forget You"), Gwyneth Paltrow is gearing up for renditions of Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" and Prince's "Kiss." The tunes are intended for revelation during Paltrow's two-episode return appearance on "Glee."
Beginning March 8, Paltrow will reprise her Holly Holiday character, stepping in as a substitute sexual education teacher at McKinley High, and kindling a romance with glee club director Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison).
The "Glee" episode, "Sexy," is expected to be exactly that. While Holly Holiday revs up the New Directions teens in sex ed class, Celibacy Club director Emma Pillsbury (Jayma Mays) may fret. Paltrow is on-deck for "Glee" episode 16 as well.
Paltrow has amply demonstrated her thespian talent in such films as "Emma," "Great Expectations," "The Royal Tenenbaums," "The Talented Mr. Ripley," and even "Shallow Hal." She has won the Golden Globe and two Screen Actors Guild awards.
But can she sing? Reviews may be mixed, but the daughter of film insiders Bruce Paltrow and Blythe Danner is still testing her pipes.
