Gwyneth Paltrow’s husband had to “convince” her to act again.

The 46-year-old actress returned to her acting roots to star in her spouse Brad Falchuk’s new Netflix show, The Politician, but it took some convincing because acting was “on the back burner”.

“I’ve got a pretty big day job over at goop.com, so I sorta put acting on the back burner.”

She said: “He had to convince me a little bit. I’ve got a pretty big day job over at goop.com, so I sorta put acting on the back burner. But he was writing, and he was like: ‘I think I’m writing a part for you.’ And I was like: ‘I don’t think I can do a part.’ And lo and behold, here I am.”

The 46-year-old actress admits it was “the best” working with Brad because she “trusts” him a lot.

“It was the best. It was really easy. I think when you trust someone so much and you love someone so much, and they know you so well and you know them, it’s really an interesting set of characteristics to bring to a workplace. So it was really nice.”
