Having been a key part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Paltrow has managed to grow into an even bigger name in the past decade by working alongside Robert Downey Jr. on a regular basis.

However, it isn't just Marvel movies that she is known for, with over 30 credits to her name, Paltrow has been in some huge films and within this list, we shall rank her 10 highest-grossing ones.

10 The Talented Mr. Ripley (Box Office $81,298,265)

We kick start this list with the 1999 movie, The Talented Mr. Ripley, which managed to gross $81,298,265 at the box office, which is a very impressive figure to be the tenth movie in any list, showing just how impressive her career has been.

The film is set in the 1950s in Italy with Matt Damon playing the titular character, Mr. Ripley, who is desperate to live the same life as Jude Law's character, Dickie Greenleaf, and he gets the chance when Dickie returns to America.

With the playboy gone, Ripley takes the opportunity to have that lifestyle, going through some dangerous situations, which leaves his partner, played by Gwyneth Paltrow, shocked.

9 Seven ($100,125,643)

Seven made $100,125,643 at the box office and is a movie that is incredibly popular amongst fans and critics, with a star-studded cast featuring Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Paltrow's character is called Tracy and is married to David Mills and is pregnant, not wanting to raise a child inside the crime-filled city, despite the fact that he had only just been transferred to the city.

With a number of horrible murders, the detectives quickly work out they are dealing with a serial killer as they attempt to try and track him down.

8 Shakespeare In Love (Box Office: $100,317,794)

Only just beating out Seven at the box office, grossing $100,317,794, Shakespeare In Love manages to make it to eighth on the list here, with the film being released back in 1998 to great success.

This movie focuses on William Shakespeare himself, who finds a young woman who poses as a man in order to be in one of his plays, which is the role that Gwyneth Paltrow plays in the movie.

This is a role that really established Paltrow as an actress, with not only the movie winning Best Picture at the Oscar's, but her individual performance winning her the Best Actress award as well.

7 Hook (Box Office: $119,654,823)

Hook was one of Gwyneth Paltrow's first feature film roles, and although she only has a small part to play in this 1991 movie, she was given a major character in the world of Peter Pan.

Paltrow was young Wendy Darling dring the flashback scenes to Peter Pan's life, showcasing a very young Paltrow who was starting to cut her teeth as an actress, with this being a huge role to have early on.

Overall, Hook is one of the best versions of the Peter Pan story that you will ever see, which is one of the main reasons it was able to make $119,654,823 at the box office.

6 Iron-Man 2 (Box Office: $312,433,331)

The first Marvel movie on this list (hint: it won't be the last), and it isn't a big surprise to see that Iron-Man 2 actually grossed the least out of all the Marvel films that Gwyneth Paltrow has been involved with.

 Iron-Man 2 is certainly not the strongest of that particular trilogy and is often considered to be one of the weakest amongst the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, with a lack of compelling story or a villain that fans could sink their teeth into.

Paltrow portrays Pepper Potts in this film, which is a character she has been on numerous occasions now, with this movie granting her plenty of screen time to showcase her talent.

5 Iron-Man (Box Office: $318,412,101)

This was the movie that started everything within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the original Iron-Man being the first choice from Marvel to start the franchise, and thankfully the film was a huge success.

While many Marvel movies went on to earn more money at the box office, the fact the very first of the bunch made $318,412,101, shows just how good this film is, with the relationship between Tony Stark and Pepper Potts being one of the highlights.

From the very start of the film, it was clear that Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow had fantastic chemistry, which was necessary to help make the millionaire character work.

4 Iron-Man 3 (Box Office: $409,013,994)

The third and final installment of the Iron-Man franchise once again saw Gwyneth Paltrow in the role of Pepper Potts and the fact the movie made $409,013,994 at the box office shows just how people had invested in the characters.

Despite the high box office number, this movie did bring mixed opinions, with many viewers not appreciating the fact that the main villain was turned into a comedic character halfway through the film.

This movie seemingly saw Potts die towards the end, with most viewers believing that the character was finished, until the twist was revealed that she had powers of her own.

3 The Avengers (Box Office: $623,357,910)

Gwyneth Paltrow really didn't have a big role in the original Avengers movie which saw the supergroup form for the first time, with the majority of the film being spent establishing the group together as a unit and the relationships between them.

However, Paltrow does appear and has a credit for the role and therefore it warrants inclusion in this list and ranking incredibly high with the film grossing $623,357,910 at the box office.

With this being the first-ever movie that saw The Avengers formed, it isn't a surprise to see that it earned so much as it was a big deal and something nobody ever expected to happen. Not to mention it was just a really good film.

2 Avengers: Infinity War (Box Office: $678,815,482)

Unlike The Avengers, Gwyneth Paltrow had a more important role to play in Avengers: Infinity War, once again reprising the role of Pepper Potts which she has played so well over the years.

As ever with Pepper Potts, Paltrow really brought the emotional weight that pulls on Tony Stark, making things tough for him as she makes him think about whether or not he should carry on being a superhero.

While Paltrow's role in this movie isn't huge, as the film spends more time focusing on the heroes and the fact that they are failing to battle against Thanos, but as ever her performance is great.

1 Avengers: End Game (Box Office: $858,373,000)

It was never going to be anything else, was it? Avengers: End Game isn't just Gwyneth Paltrow's highest-grossing movie of all time, but it is the highest-grossing film of all time, period, with no movie so far making more money at the box office.

While that record will inevitably be beaten at some stage down the line, it is going to take a monster hit movie to come anywhere near this record, and therefore this is very likely to be Paltrow's number one when she retires as well.

Paltrow might not be heavily featured in the film, but she does play a massive role in bringing the emotional tone, especially at the end of the movie with Iron-Man's death, which didn't leave many dry eyes in the cinemas.
