Here’s my new straight-out-of-fanfic headcanon: they were set up by their publicists to generate buzz for their collab, but after spending so much time together they’ve both actually developed feelings, and now it’s turning into the real deal. Don’t take this away from me with logic!

Kevin Feige is doing god’s work by gifting us with yet another story about how Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t seem to know much about the MCU.

You’ve been in movies with him!'”

They were pretty clear about that in the promotion, no?

The video of her going through her film roles is incredibly charming. (I only wish she would have continued talking about Clouds of Sils Maria and explained the ending ’cause I’m still confused.)
