Gwyneth Paltrow has called her 2001 film Shallow Hal a "disaster". Appearing in a video for Netflix alongside her assistant Kevin Keating, the award-winning actress revealed that her role in the film was her "least favourite". In the video, titled The BBF Test, Kevin was asked to test his knowledge of Gwyneth, and when asked what Gwyneth's "least favourite performance" was, he answered: "Least favourite performance, I would say would be Shallow Hal." Gwyneth, 47, nods and makes an awkward face before Kevin joked: "I’m not sure who told you to do that one, but it wasn’t me." The doting mum responds by saying: "That was before your time. See what happened? Disaster."
The year the film was released, Gwyneth told W magazine that she felt "humiliated" during filming, telling the magazine: "The first day I tried [the fat suit] on, I was in the Tribeca Grand [hotel in New York City] and I walked through the lobby. It was so sad; it was so disturbing. No one would make eye contact with me because I was obese." The mother-of-two added: "The clothes they make for women that are overweight are horrible. I felt humiliated because people were really dismissive."
