Gwyneth Paltrow White Short Shorts Pictures

Gwyneth Paltrow Has RDJ to Thank For Her Avengers Appearance

Gwyneth Paltrow headed to her car in LA.

Gwyneth Paltrow paired a floral top with a tiny pair of white shorts yesterday while out running errands in LA. Gwyneth's ombré-dyed hair was up in a ponytail. She's been on the West Coast for the past week, and last Friday, joined friends like Gwen Stefani and Reese Witherspoon at an event celebrating Paul McCartney's new music video. Gwyneth was also seen lunching with friends on Tuesday at the Montage Hotel. Gwyneth's skipped out on doing press for The Avengers so far. In a recent interview, the blockbuster's director Joss Whedon explained why Gwyneth's Pepper Potts has a role in the picture — and it has a lot to do with Iron Man himself, Robert Downey, Jr. Joss explained, "Pepper, this was really Robert’s thing. He pushed hard . . . He really thought Gwyneth would bring something great to the table, and we all thought so as well, but he was the one who convinced her to come and do it."

Earlier this month, Gwyneth and her family marked a big milestone. Her youngest, Moses Martin, turned 6 on April 8. Moses's dad Chris Martin may have had to send birthday wishes from afar, though. Chris's band Coldplay is in the midst of a Canadian tour and performed in Edmonton on Tuesday night. Tomorrow, Coldplay takes the stage in Vancouver.
