During an “ask me anything” segment in her Instagram story, Gwenyth Paltrow expressed confusion when questioned about the Disney+ series Hawkeye.
When a fan asked her if she’d watched the show yet, she admitted to not even knowing anything about the series at all:
Fan: Have you watched the Hawkeye series??
Paltrow: No, what is that?
Another Round of Gwenyth Paltrow Forgetfulness
On the one hand, Gwenyth Paltrow is one of the founding members of the MCU from an acting perspective. However, she’s also made somewhat of a habit out of being unclear on what’s actually happening in the widely-popular franchise she helped build from the ground up.
This is far from the first time fans have seen Paltrow seemingly go blank on the MCU’s history, as she notably forgot that she, Jon Favreau, and Robert Downey Jr. filmed one of the last scenes in Spider-Man: Homecoming. She also has a notorious habit of forgetting who she’s acted within and out of the MCU, and it doesn’t just stop at Marvel Studios projects.
Paltrow is clearly an important part of the Infinity Saga, having played secretary-turned-Stark Industries CEO Pepper Potts in seven MCU movies to date. However, her lapse in memory regarding her MCU tenure hasn’t gone unnoticed, and it’s continuing in a big way as Phase 4 moves forward.
The first three episodes of Hawkeye are now streaming on Disney+. Episode 4 will make its debut on Wednesday, December 8.
