Gwyneth Paltrow

Someone took a liking to Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook, or at least appreciated the attempt.

The Iron Man actor (and Goop-ster) is in talks to star in the indie film adaptation of Gabrielle Hamilton's 2011 memoir, Blood, Bones & Butter, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The New York Times bestseller "follows an unconventional journey through the many kitchens Hamilton has inhabited through the years," according to the book's description on, and starts in her French mother's kitchen (nothing like mom's cookin') where Hamilton got her first introduction to the world of food.

It then notes her travels to France, Greece, and Turkey, where she was often fed by complete strangers and ultimately ends at Hamilton's own foodie endeavors as the owner and chef of New York restaurant, Prune.

It has a flavor similar to Meryl Streep's Julie & Julia mixed with some of Julia Roberts' Eat, Pray, Love.

But let's hope it's more of the former than the latter.

Meanwhile, Paltrow has been busy shooting Iron Man 3 (at times being accompanied by her little ones) and gearing up to executive produce this year's Stand Up to Cancer telecast.
