Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t just act like she’s into art, even though she will play Pablo Picasso’s muse Dora Maar alongside Antonio Banderas in the upcoming Picasso biopic 33 Días. The Hollywood actress is a self-confessed art aficionado and enthusiastic art collector. Before embarking on her career as an actress, she was an art history major at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Together with art consultant Mario Brito—who also advises celebs including hip hop mogul P. Diddy—Paltrow has assembled an eclectic collection. The actress has bought photographs by British artist and photographer Darren Almond. She recently told Elle Décor that the artist’s “arresting, large-scale artworks bring a sense of majesty to a room.” [link]
