Gwyneth Paltrow Passed On Her Casting Couch Offers

In the recent issue of Elle, Gwyneth Paltrow confessed that as she was starting out in show business, she got propositioned for sex in order to get parts.

“When I was just starting out, someone suggested that we finish a meeting in the bedroom. I left. I was pretty shocked. I could see how someone who didn’t know better might worry, “My career will be ruined if I don’t give this guy a blow job!,” the actress said.

Well, fortunately for her not giving a BJ hasn’t hurt her career. She is one of the three cover ladies for the magazine’s annual Women in Hollywood issue and is generating a lot of buzz (and I’m so looking forward to it as well) for her portrayal of a boozy country singer in December’s Country Strong. Watch the trailer after the jump!
