14Gwyneth Paltrow And Winona Who?

Believe it or not, Winona Ryder and Gwyneth Paltrow were once the best of friends. That's right, taking over Hollywood during the mid-nineties, the two were even dating celebrity BFFs Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. The perfect foursome, the couples would often

double date and were often seen hanging out at each other's houses. In fact, during one date in particular, Paltrow stumbled upon the script for Shakespeare in Love which had originally been intended for Ryder to read. Immediately interested, Paltrow auditioned the role only to get the part and eventually win an Oscar for her work. Obviously unhappy with her friend's betrayal, Ryder was intent on destroying her one time best friend's career. Referring to the incident years later, without naming any names, of course, Paltrow stated, "back in the day, I had a 'frenemy' who, as it turned out, was pretty hellbent on taking me down. I restrained myself from fighting back. I tried to take the high road. But one day I heard that something unfortunate and humiliating had happened to this person. And my reaction was deep relief and happiness."
