Ask Gwyneth Paltrow what part Gwyneth Paltrow played in Spider-Man: Homecoming, even if you're the guy who directed her in it, and she'll tell you she wasn't in it Such was the conversation between Paltrow and director Jon Favreau on a clip from the latter's The Chef Show on Netflix in which Favreau mentions working together on the movie. "Spider-Man?" Paltrow asks. "Yeah, we were in Spider-Man together," Favreau says. "Remember, we were on Spider-Man?"

"We weren’t in Spider-Man," says the Spider-Man actress. When Favreau insists that he's right, Paltrow responds that, "No. I was in Avengers." “No, you were in Spider-Man also,” he corrects. “Remember, Spider-Man, at the end? And Tom Holland’s there and you’re gonna walk out and do a press conference?" Finally, dawn: "Oh, yes," Paltrow says. "That was Spider-Man? Oh my God!" (The movie did pretty well.)
