Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is not part of Jon Favreau's new movie "Chef" but the talented Academy Award winning actress might be considered one of the interesting special contributors to the show. The movie "Chef" is a passion project for the acclaimed 'Iron Man 2' producer Jon Favreau who is an actor, writer and director for the film. He was trained for the role by celebrity chef Roy Choi, a renowned chef who has become famous because of his Kogi food truck.
How Jon Favreau meet Roy Choi? Through the goodwill and celebrity connection of Gwyneth Paltrow as she had Roy Choi's food truck come to the set of 'Iron Man 2' as a thank you to the crew. The introduction occurred and Jon Favreau soon had Roy Choi as a food chef teacher and film consultant and also gained instant credibility from all the foodies who became aware of Jon Favreau's new project.
In addition to helping Jon Favreau prepare for his 'Chef' role Gwyneth Paltrow also showed the movie at her house and in attendance was Robert Downey Jr. Jon Favreau had wanted Robert Downey Jr. to design a poster for the movie because he is a graphic design artist. Jon Favreau and Roy Choi went to the home of Gwyneth Paltrows and prepared a lunch that was in the movie for the movie guests to try. As a result of the evening, Robert Downey Jr. did not create one poster, he created seven.
Thus when people think of the talented and beautiful actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who only last year in 2013 was named the Most Beautiful Woman by People Magazine, they should also think of her as "the connector and unseen contributor of the movie 'Chef'.
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow may not be a Hollywood agent or casting agent but she knows how to bring talented people together to create impressive and successful film projects.
