Gwyneth Paltrow of Iron Man 3 opened up on being Pepper Potts.
In an interview with Digital Spy, the Iron Man 3 actress gave us her thoughts on being a part of the action this time around, and the possibility of a Pepper Potts spinoff movie. As previously reported in The Inquisitr, a TV spot showed us Pepper Potts donning the Iron Man suit, which leads us to wonder if there is a future in the comic book character of Rescue.
In the comic books, Rescue was a character created when Pepper Potts used one of Tony Stark’s suits, most likely to help the playboy billionaire when he couldn’t help himself. Gwyneth Paltrow says she doesn’t think they’ll ever do it, but it could be fun if they did. After all, people mostly show up in the theater to watch Iron Man, not Pepper Potts.
As for future Iron Man or Avengers films, Gwyneth Paltrow says that Robert Downey Jr. likes having her around, so it’s more than likely that she’ll be in them. Pepper Potts is like the practical part of Tony Stark’s life that keeps him grounded when he’s pushing things too far, and it shows even in the films.
Gwyneth Paltrow said in the interview, “[When] the movie starts, Tony is kinda very traumatized by what’s happened at the end of Avengers. He’s got a bit of post traumatic stress disorder, and he’s very kind of distracted and having a difficult time connecting, and they’ve obviously been living together for a while, the relationship has progressed… They’re in a little bit of a struggle when the movie starts.”
On the fact of getting into the action in Iron Man 3, Gwyneth Paltrow said, “I loved it. I mean I really found it fun, I’ve never really done stunts before and I thought it was thrilling… I liked it a lot.”
The rest of the interview is above.
