Gwyneth Paltrow In Talks To Play Gabrielle Hamilton in ‘Blood, Bones and Butter’
Gwyneth Paltrow is many things — an actress, a writer, a foodie, an advocate of unnecessarily expensive clothing — and now she’s about to become Gabrielle Hamilton. Gwyneth is reportedly in talks to play the chef and writer in an upcoming big-screen adaptation of Gabrielle’s memoir Blood, Bones and Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef.
The film, which is being pitched as a film “in a similar vein as Julie & Julia“, doesn’t yet have a writer, but will be produced by the people behind Adventureland and Junebug. Gabrielle’s memoir has won awards and the adoration of critics and fans alike, and can be described as “gospel for a lot of aspiring food writers“.
Maybe Gwyneth is hoping that by playing one of the most renowned chefs in the country, the food community will finally accept her as one of their own. And as long as she isn’t trying to be a country singer again, we’ll get behind her. Deal, Gwyneth?
What do you think: is she a good fit?
