Gwyneth Paltrow's movie Shallow Hal (2001)
Paltrow starred alongside Jack Black in Shallow Hal in 2001. The film was directed by the Farrelly brothers, also known for films including Dumb & Dumber, Kingpin, and Me, Myself & Irene.
In Shallow Hal, Paltrow wears a "fatsuit." She meets Jack Black's character, who is hypnotized into seeing the inner beauty in women - which allows only him to see Paltrow's character in the actress's normally slender figure.
She looks back on the film as a "disaster."
Gwyneth Paltrow: Goop founder
Paltrow also criticized the film after its release in an interview with Variety.
"It was so sad; it was so disturbing. No one would make eye contact with me because I was obese. I was wearing this black shirt with big snowmen on it. For some reason, the … clothes they make for women that are overweight are horrible. I felt humiliated because people were really dismissive."
