It appears all of the jade eggs have gotten to Gwyneth Paltrow’s head because the actress has forgotten yet another Marvel co-star. SAMUEL. L. JACKSON.
The 46-year-old actress-turned-lifestyle mogul who played Pepper Potts in Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe apparently forgot that Samuel L Jackson also appeared in the film series, according to People Magazine.
“Tom Holland [was] coming up to me, saying, ‘Is that Michelle Pfeiffer? What is happening?’ ” Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios said. “Gwyneth Paltrow [was] asking why Sam Jackson was there, and the other actors [were] jumping in saying, ‘What are you talking about? He’s Nick Fury! You’ve been in movies with him.’ But it was really something special.”
You might be forgiven for forgetting someone a little less significant. But Nick Fury is kind of a big deal, and Samuel L Jackson is literally the highest-grossing box office actor of all time.
Samuel L. Jackson is one of the longest standing cast members of the MCU, Nick Fury was actually developed around his likeness.
But Sammy L. J is in good company because Gwyneth has also forgotten Sebastian Stan and apparently Tom Holland, who she massively shunned in this instagram post.
Unfortunately this isn’t the first time Gwyneth has been a little forgetful when it comes to Marvel stuff. Heck, she even forgot SHE was in Spiderman: Homecoming.
“No, I wasn’t in ‘Spider-Man,’” she said, “I was in ‘Avengers.’” I hate to break it to ya Gwyn, but you were in both.
Gwyneth Paltrow genuinely did not know she was in "Spider-Man: Homecoming" so this adorable interaction from "The Chef Show" is easily my favorite thing on the internet today pic.twitter.com/lc3VlSs1Hp

As a self-confessed Goop nerd, I’m a little concerned that the woman who dedicates her life to weird health and wellness shit has such a poor memory. Surely there’s a $90USD vitamin for that, right?
Maybe Gwyneth needs to invest in a “Why Am I So Effing Forgetful?” supplement to add to the Goop range of vitamins that cost $3USD per pill.
Although the pair never actually share a scene in any of the films Gwyneth and Samuel co-starred in, they both attended the Avengers: Infinity War premiere. You know, that movie they were BOTH in.
