Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow sang in the movies "Duets" (2000) and Country Strong (2010), and on the television episode "The Substitute" of Glee (also 2010). "Duets" spawned two hit singles in Australia, with Gwyneth Paltrow and Huey Lewis` "Cruisin’" spending two weeks at #1 on the Australian singles chart, and Paltrow’s "Bette Davis Eyes" peaking at #3.
According to the Country Strong Songfacts, Paltrow did not know how to play the guitar before she filmed Country Strong and had to learn how to strum the
strings convincingly pretty quickly.
Paltrow is married to Chris Martin, the lead singer of Coldplay.
In 2006 British newspaper The Sun reported Paltrow has been writing and recording a series of tracks with William Orbit, but no album came to pass.
