When you’re Gwyneth Paltrow, the names of the blockbuster movies that you’ve made just blur together.
The Oscar-winning actress appeared as a guest on director Jon Favreau’s Netflix cooking show, The Chef Show, and was happily surprised when Favreau mentioned their time together on 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.
To be fair, Paltrow’s character in Spider-Man is Pepper Potts, the same character she plays in a host of Marvel movies, including the three Iron Man movies and The Avengers saga.
Favreau, who worked on many of the same movies as an actor and producer, brought up Spider-Man when he was explaining The Chef Show, in which he appears alongside celebrity chef Roy Choi. He told Paltrow that he had actually begun working on the series when the two were making the blockbuster.
“We weren’t in Spider-Man,” Paltrow said.
After Favreau assured Paltrow that she was in the movie, she countered with, “I was in Avengers.”
He gives her a little more about what Potts was doing in the scene, and then it comes to her. And she loves it.
The internet appreciated it, too, and had plenty of zingers. For the most part, people seemed to understand how Paltrow forgot, although some pointed out that she was billed as one of the movie’s stars above other notable actors.
Gwyneth Paltrow not knowing that she was in Spiderman is so refreshing.— I'm not always late, I'm consistent (@rT28250462) June 7, 2019
At least, she is honest about not caring for those movies. https://t.co/1K0hOHFDqo
Gwyneth Paltrow genuinely did not know she was in "Spider-Man: Homecoming" so this adorable interaction from "The Chef Show" is easily my favorite thing on the internet today pic.twitter.com/lc3VlSs1Hp— Jarett Wieselman (@JarettSays) June 7, 2019

The greatest symbol of Marvel’s vast empire is that they put Gwyneth Paltrow in Spider-Man Homecoming without her even knowing it. pic.twitter.com/Ky623prRAX— Ziggy (@mrjafri) June 7, 2019
I don't blame Gwyneth Paltrow for forgetting she was in one of the Spiderman movies. Honestly, all these superhero movies kind of blur together.— K. Scott Gant (@ksgant) June 7, 2019
Gwyneth Paltrow makes so much money she didn't even notice the paycheck from Spiderman: Homecoming. #stupidmoney— Kaitlyn Richey (@Kait_lynyo) June 7, 2019
You know you're living your best life when you can forget that you were fourth billed in a movie that grossed over $880 million worldwide. But I'm not mad at @GwynethPaltrow though, this is where I want to be in life #SpiderMan #Marvel 🤣 https://t.co/A8HCXmAZGg— Thea (@TheaAlli) June 7, 2019

Gwyneth Paltrow being FOURTH BILLED in Spider-man: Homecoming" (BEFORE MARISSA TOMEI) and having no idea she was in the movie is truly the energy I'm trying to manifest every day. https://t.co/7lW0UsgdYL— R. Eric Thomas (@oureric) June 7, 2019
Paltrow’s next role is in the Ryan Murphy, Netflix series The Politician, in which she will play someone other than Pepper Potts.
