One of my favorite things about a Disney/Marvel Press Event is interviewing the talent. Luckily, I’ve had great experiences and everyone I have met has been super down to earth and got a kick out of us “Mommy Bloggers”. For the #IronMan3Event we will be interviewing Ty Simpkins and Gwyneth Paltrow.
In 1994, she entered a relationship with Brad Pitt, the older (by nine years) superstar who gave her a career boost by choosing her to play his wife in the hit thriller Se7en (1995). But it was the title role of Emma Woodhouse in Emma (1996) that fully tapped in to Gwyneth’s capabilities and made her an in-demand actress. She and Pitt broke off their much publicized engagement in 1997, citing as the reason the fact that neither felt that they could pursue their respective careers and at the same time maintain a happy marriage. They remain good friends. Meanwhile, Gwyneth’s career has gone through the roof with the release of five glossy films in 1998, including Great Expectations (1998), Sliding Doors (1998), A Perfect Murder (1998), and John Madden’s masterpiece Shakespeare in Love (1998). Gwyneth’s outstanding performance as Viola in the last film marked her greatest career triumph to date. She won the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Academy Awards for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Now she’s married to Chris Martin and has 2 children. She’s playing Pepper Potts in the upcoming Iron Man 3 Movie. She also is a blogger and has a new book “It’s All Good”.
Ty was born August 6, 2001 and is now 11 years old. He lives in California. He is the youngest of 3 children; Ty plays the cello; is dyslexic; takes Tae Kwon Do; attends public school; has 2 dogs and 2 cats; favorite subject is history. To top off Ty’s recent films, Ty will play Harley in the new Iron Man 3 (2013) film, opposite Robert Downey Jr.
