“How does one in the Marvel Universe interpret a god of love and sex?” asked Drew. “How does that work in the Marvel world?”
“You just cast Harry Styles,” Gwyneth replied. “Just put it on without a shirt and you’re done.”
Paltrow last played the CEO of Stark Industries and wife of Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, and she’s left the door open for a possible return to the MCU.
In March 2021 she told People“I think if it was a small part that I could do in a day or two, of course I’d be open to it.”

“Have you ever been that type?” asked Barrymore. “Because I used to be all PDA, like when you dated Fabrizio Moretti from The Strokes, I was just making out with him all the time. I couldn’t handle it. I couldn’t get enough. Have you ever been a PDA?’
“I also did PDA with Fabrizio,” Gwyneth joked from the audience, laughing.
‘This is my feeling about it. I think there’s an age difference or age limit,” Drew said.
“You reach a certain age and here I am at a dinner table with people on the PDA,” she continued, turning sideways and making a disgusted face.
“This is your face when you see PDA?” asked Paltrow.
Drew said, “Yeah, now I’m old and weary and I want to say, ‘Pack it. Move it to the nurse’s bedroom. I’m trying to eat.'”

“We don’t have to get into a situation thinking, ‘Oh, it’s an ex, so that’s why I feel threatened or I’ll be prone to thinking negatively.’ It’s like, what if we just say, “Hey, the more the merrier”, and not create a negative feeling and try to create more positive feeling where we can. So that’s what I’m trying to do.”
Ross said, “It sounds super simple. It would be nice, but I understand it can be uncomfortable and sticky and weird at times.’
“I think it stems from insecurity,” Drew added. ‘I do. I have no insecurity with Will [Kopelman] and his wife Allie. In fact, I wish I could be best friends with her, but I got some great advice not to be too present in their relationship, we found just the right sweet spot. I believe in this.’
Gwyneth said, “That’s a beautiful Drew. I love that you do that.’
Ross said, ‘I think so too, I think it’s beautiful. I watch 90 Day Fiance a lot and I will say you are in the minority.”
Then he asked, “Do you know what 90 Day Fiance is, Gwyneth?
“Of course,” Gwyneth said to Ross’s delight. “Brad and I watched an entire season during quarantine.”
