San Diego Comic Con 2007. There I was among a crapload of other reporters for the Iron Man roundtables. Iron Man was nearly a year away from seeing release but Marvel was out in full force to do some early promotion of the film.

This clip is Gwyneth Paltrow and, I’ll be honest, I expected her to have a stick up her butt. I don’t know why – I just did. I was really surprised at how nice and down to Earth she was. I felt really bad because she had some sort of cast around her ankle (she talks briefly about it here) so she was kinda hobbling around. Yet, even though she was hurt, she took the time to talk to us nerdy reporters about her role as Pepper Potts.

The lone downside? This seems to be the shortest of the Iron Man interviews. Still – she was cool and is still good in my book.
