For many actors, it's incredibly difficult to watch movies that they've starred in. We've all been there, unable to watch or even listen to ourselves after being recorded. Nevertheless, we usually have a few videos of ourselves that we can stand to watch back. For actress Gwyneth Paltrow, the actor can't watch all but one scene she's been in.

Despite her decades of acting, there's only a single movie that Paltrow can sit through. Even then, the actress can only truly enjoy one of her scenes thanks to an incredibly wholesome memory.

After acting in 60 different productions, Gwyneth Paltrow has a lot of roles that she can't watch. From her first role in the TV movie High to her awesome action scenes in Avengers: Endgame, the actress can't stand most of her time on screen.

However, in a report by USA Today, Paltrow explained that she did have one film that she can watch: The Royal Tenenbaums. Filmed in 2001, The Royal Tenenbaums is a beloved Wes Anderson movie that received critical acclaim. Even after twenty years of release, that one movie is still dearly important to the actress.

“I have a memory of my dad visiting. He came the day that we did a scene where I’m getting off the bus and Richie’s picking me up, and my dad was there. It was a very special day.”
“I also really hate, hate, hate seeing myself in a movie ever and it’s kind of like the only scene that I can watch of myself of my whole career.”

Unfortunately, Paltrow's father passed away a year after the movie’s release due to an onset of pneumonia alongside his battle with cancer.
