In June, a clip from Jon Favreau`s `The Chef Show` went viral when Paltrow insisted she wasn`t in `Spider-Man: Homecoming`.

Shocker! American actor Gwyneth Paltrow recently revealed that she has never seen Marvel`s `Spider-Man: Homecoming`- a film that she was also a part of.

Paltrow, who portrays Pepper Potts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), explained a gaffe that went viral, in which she forgot she had a scene in Tom Holland`s first `Spider-Man` standalone film, reported Us Weekly.

In June, a clip from Jon Favreau`s `The Chef Show` went viral when Paltrow insisted she wasn`t in `Spider-Man: Homecoming`. Favreau, who plays Iron Man`s confidant Happy Hogan, has a brief scene with Paltrow and Holland at the end of the film. However, Paltrow also had an explanation for mixing up which Marvel movies she has appeared in.

During a recent appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!', host Jimmy Kimmel brought up the viral moment from Jon Favreau`s The Chef Show where Paltrow hadn`t realized that she had a cameo in the film.Paltrow told Kimmel that her previous puzzled nature on the matter was "so embarrassing." However, she explained what led to the misunderstanding.

"I just got confused. There`s so many of these wonderful Marvel interconnecting movies. I thought that it was an Avengers movie, but it was not," she said.
The confusion, she accidentally confessed, was because of the fact that she hadn`t seen the film. "I never actually saw the movie. I mean, wait, cut that out! Take that back," she shared.

For his part, Kimmel said he didn`t expect the Oscar-winning actor to keep up with comic-book blockbusters."You`re Gwyneth Paltrow, you shouldn`t be watching `Spider-Man,`" he said, laughing. "It would upset people if you had."After Paltrow joined Favreau on `The Chef Show`, she made headlines for failing to recall her appearance in the 2017 Spider-Man film. 

Although Favreau attempted to jog back Paltrow`s memory, she couldn`t be convinced otherwise. Paltrow said, "We weren`t in Spider-Man." Favreau noted that she was "in Spider-Man," but Paltrow replied, "No. I was in Avengers."

Favreau tried once more to convince Paltrow. "Remember, Spider-Man, at the end?" he began to explain. "And Tom Holland is there, and you`re gonna walk out and do a press conference? I give you the ring? That was Spider-Man."

"Oh, yes. That was Spider-Man? Oh, my God," Paltrow said.

Paltrow starred in `Iron Man` and its two sequels, as well as `The Avengers`, `Avengers: Infinity War` and `Avengers: Endgame`. The actor might be among the very few who haven`t seen `Spider-Man: Homecoming`, the Marvel film grossed USD 880 million at the global box office.
