Gwenyth Paltrow’s movie career actually could have gotten off to an earlier start than it did. One of the great one-hit wonders of all-time is Vanilla Ice. His “Ice Ice Baby” was a song you could not get away from in 1990.
Soon afterward, to capitalize, “Cool As Ice” was green-lit and made by Hollywood.
Yes…it’s as bad as it looks.
Anyway, long-story-short, Gwenyth was offered the female lead (eventually played by Kristin Minter). Her father, director Bruce Paltrow, didn’t just say, “No.” He said, “HELL NO!”
Probably pretty good advice.
What did your dad refuse to let you do?
