Gwyneth Paltrow and Katherine Moennig have more than just acting in common. The “Iron Man” babe and the "L Word” star are related. Paltrow’s mother is the half-sister of Moennig’s father, making the women cousins.
“We’re totally different people. We look very different, too. I think that people would be able to point out the differences a lot more easily than they’d be able to point out the similarities,” Moennig told the New York Observer in 2000. “I like that people don’t actually make the comparison. And I want no one judging me solely on the fact that I am her cousin. There is a fear, yeah. It could be a blow to your head, but again, it is none of my business.” —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
