Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson Aren’t Getting Along

Uh oh…are the claws about to come out?

The Sun is reporting that tensions are high between the two leading ladies on the set of Iron Man 2

Scarlett Johansson joined the cast of Iron Man for the highly anticipated sequel, and word is that seasoned actress Gwyneth Paltrow is not the biggest Scarjo fan. The source spills, “Gwyneth has become very frustrated with Scarlett. They come from different worlds and have completely different styles.”

They added, “Gwyneth was looking forward to working with Emily Blunt, who was originally in line for the part, but it ended up being Scarlett. Gwyneth’s had to live with that and she has been very professional, but she and Scarlett haven’t developed a friendship on the shoot, which is almost at the half way point.”

Another reason for the tension may be the fact that Gwyneth feels self conscious around the buxom sex symbol. Scarlett, who plays the role of a Natasha Romanoff, a sexy former spy known as the Black Widow, has a wardrobe full of tight catsuits. Gwyneth, on the other hand, sports business suits for her part as Robert Downey Jr‘s assistant. 

Gwyneth has left the set for two weeks on a break, to travel with Coldplay hubby Chris Martin, which the source says will be a perfect opportunity to “recharge her batteries before returning for her chance to show who is boss.”
