Gwyneth Paltrow in Shallow Hal
Gwyneth Paltrow traded in her
Shakespeare in Love corset for a 25-pound fat suit—complete with latex makeup—for the 2001 Farrelly brothers comedy
Shallow Hal, an experience she described as “incredibly isolating.” “Nobody would even make eye contact with me,” Paltrow said. “Like, nobody would even look in my direction.” Except for, of course, Jack Black’s character, who ended up falling for Rosemary by the end of the film.
