London, (ANI): Gwyneth Paltrow prepared for her country music
character Kelly Canter in new film Country Strong by studying hours
of concert footage of stars like Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton. She
even admitted to adding in a little Courtney Love to give her
Canter a little edge.
"I watched every DVD of every country woman ever. It was like
school. Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton - she plays all bar chords (on
guitar) because she has such long nails," The Daily Express quoted
her as saying.
"Physically, we're very similar. Obviously she's much prettier
than I am, but we're the same type. I latched on to Faith in terms
of physicality," Paltrow said.
"I also wanted to bring an edgier, Courtney Love-ish, Shelby
Lynne thing to it, because I felt like my character wishes she were
Faith Hill, but she is a little bit too punk rock," she added.
