Paltrow Cooks Up Blood, Bones & Butter
For a foodie memoir, not a recipe

Paltrow Cooks Up Blood, Bones & Butter

Given her usual food preferences, we were somewhat surprised to learn of Gwyneth Paltrow’s involvement with something called Blood, Bones & Butter. But fear not, goop faithful! She’s simply signed on to star in an indie pic bearing that title.

Though it doesn’t yet have a director or writer attached, Paltrow was apparently attracted by the source material, Gabrielle Hamilton’s 2011 book of the same name.

Why that might be isn’t hard to spot: Hamilton’s memoir is an incident-packed, Julie & Julia-style tale of her upbringing with French mother and artist father, who built sets for the Barnum and Bailey Circus. It also chronicles her unusual journey to becoming a chef. And not only that: while Hamilton is currently owner and head chef at New York’s swanky Prune restaurant, she’s also a skilled writer with an MFA.

This one will take a while to simmer yet, as producers Rodrigo Teixeira and Anne Carey are now looking for the right scribe to adapt the book. Paltrow is currently to be found playing Pepper Potts again on the set of Iron Man 3.
