So...

...anybody else cheer when "The Most Beautiful Woman in the World" () fell into the lake of fire?
No.

Being over 40 myself, Gwyneth is the sexiest thing on two legs.
I'm 43. What's age got to do with anything?

But since you brought it up, I can name a bunch of actresses over forty that are sexier.

The portrayal of her in the IM movies does nothing but emphasize this. She is competent, they have a relationship that is serious and amazing, considering what having billions of dollars is going to do to anyone's personality. The loss that Tony would actually have if Pepper were killed feels real. Now, I didn't believe for a minute that Pepper was dead, but I believed what Tony would have felt watching her fall into the fire.
This isn't about RDJ's acting ability. This is about the indirect thrill of watching a self-centered, air-headed walking pencil stick burn, however briefly.

But okay, nicer question: Ya think they'll give the pencil stick her own suit of armor like in Iron Man Armored Adventures?
