Gwyneth Paltrow to stop playing Pepper Potts after Avengers: Endgame
The 46-year-old actor first played the personal assistant-turned-lover of Robert Downey's Tony Stark in Iron Man (2008)
Gwyneth Paltrow, who plays Pepper Potts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has revealed that she will retire from her role after the upcoming Avengers: Endgame.
The 46-year-old actor first played the personal assistant-turned-lover of Robert Downey's Tony Stark in Iron Man (2008). This film marked the beginning of the MCU, and Paltrow has since played Potts in six films so far, with Avengers: Endgame marking her seventh appearance.
In an interview, the actor said, "I mean, I'm a bit old to be in a suit and all that at this point. But I feel very lucky that I did it because I got talked into it." She added, "I was friends with (Iron Man director) Jon Favreau. It was such a wonderful experience making the first Iron Man and then to watch how important it has become to the fans."
Avengers: Endgame is set for release worldwide on April 26.
