* ChildhoodFriends[=/=]HeterosexualLifePartners: She and Creator/MayaRudolph have been friends since they were seven ([[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant No]] {{Pun}} [[Film/{{Se7en}} intended]]).
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: For example, believes water has feelings.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: On camera, anyway. Her persona is famously polarizing.



* GenkiGirl: Her earlier roles tend to be this.



* MeaninglessMeaningfulWords: As of late, she seems to speak in nothing but these, as "conscious uncoupling" can attest to.
* OnAgainOffAgainGirlfriend: To Creator/BenAffleck from 1997 to late 2000.



* TheRival: To Martha Stewart, now that they both have very successful lifestyle businesses.
** The media's extended the competition with Creator/JessicaAlba, Creator/BlakeLively and Creator/ReeseWitherspoon. [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3112396/Gwyneth-Paltrow-thinks-s-misogynistic-compare-Jessica-Alba-Reese-Witherspoon-Blake-Lively.html She isn't happy about it.]]

* StatuesqueStunner: She stands 5'9.
** ScullyBox: Given Creator/RobertDowneyJr is slightly shorter (even with [[http://images.starpulse.com/pictures/2010/04/28/previews/Gwyneth%20Paltrow%20and%20Robert%20Downey%20Jr.-DGG-024893.jpg both wearing heels]]!), Pepper Potts is never shown in a way she could tower over Tony Stark.
* UpperClassTwit: Is just as well known for her many [[MeaninglessMeaningfulWords quotes]] as well as her advice for mothers being "buy expensive clothes."
* WorldsMostBeautifulWoman: So said People Magazine a couple years back, to much backlash and Gwyneth's own bemusement.
