Don't ask Gwyneth Paltrow to list all seven Marvel movies she appears in.

But the Oscar-winning actress told Variety she made a conscious decision to step away from Hollywood after the industry shifted to focus on more blockbuster fare.

What do think of this hilarious moment between Gwyneth Paltrow and Jon Favreau?

During an episode of Netflix's "The Chef Show", Jon Favreau recalls the origin story of his cooking show happened while filming "Spider-Man: Homecoming" in Atlanta.Paltrow is flummoxed.

Jon Favreau: Well yeah, we were on Spider-Man together. When he brought that specific experience up with the actress on the show, she was beyond confused.

Paltrow is perhaps better known for her role as Pepper Potts in the Iron Man and Avengers series - though she does, in fact, appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Her Iron Man director has to actually work to convince her that not only was she in The Avengers, she was also in Spider-Man: Homecoming, by describing the scene itself. When reminded of the scene, it appears this was literally the first time she realized it was shot for a Spider-Man film and not an Avengers movie, expressing genuine astonishment as she asked, "That was Spider-Man?" I started just filming.

Jon Favreau: No, but Spider-Man also.

"Yes, we were... You were in Spider-Man", he argued, with Roy adding "Homecoming".

"No, I was in Avengers..." But Paltrow was totally taken aback by the mere suggestion that she has ever been in a Spider-Man movie in her life, as flagged by Decider.

"Remember, at the end, Tom Holland's there and you're gonna walk out and do a press conference?"

Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released in theaters on July 2, 2019.
