Gwyneth Paltrow Looked to Beyonce for Tips

Gwyneth Paltrow didn’t just become a country music singer overnight. The Oscar-winning actress (and Glee guest star) relied on her friends for pointers to perfect her role in Country Strong. “I was playing a bonafide superstar and that’s what kind of scared me the most,” our January cover girl told Good Morning America.” I thought, ‘How am I going to realistically pull this off?’ So I studied Beyonce to see how she performs and that kind of amazing confidence she has. I thought if I could just channel a little thimbleful of Beyonce’s confidence, then you know.” Catch Country Strong when it opens nationwide on Friday. And for more from Gwyneth Paltrow, pick up a copy of January’s InStyle issue, on newsstands now.

The following is a guest post from one of our favorite blogs, Fabsugar.

Getting a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame is huge. Gwyneth Paltrow is the latest actress to join the exclusive group, which also includes Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz and Kyra Sedgwick, among others. So it’s only fitting that these stylish women would show up to the ceremony in perfect ensembles. Gwyneth opted for a lace Monique Lhuillier dress, Reese wore Dolce & Gabbana polka dots, Cameron chose white lace Oscar de la Renta, and Kyra Sedgwick went with a voluminous orange frock. They all look so ladylike-chic!

All five nominees are Hollywood (and/or Nashville) heavyweights like Gwyneth Paltrow, Christina Aguilera and Cher. And while the tunes usually aren’t performed at the Golden Globes, we’re hoping the Hollywood Foreign Press Association can find time for them in the show this year. Check out the complete list of Best Song nominees in the gallery.
