Paltrow considers 'Avengers' cameo

Gwyneth Paltrow may make a cameo appearance in 'The Avengers'.

While the 'Iron Man' actress has previously claimed her character Pepper Potts won't appear in the superhero ensemble movie, even though Robert Downey Jr., who plays her boss Tony Stark and his superhero alter-ego Iron Man will, she has now conceded there could be a small part for her after all.

She said: "I'll probably be in 'Iron Man 3'. I'll possibly be very briefly in 'The Avengers'. Maybe, we'll see."

If Gwyneth does take on a role in the film she will join a host of stars including Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Clark Gregg, Jeremy Renner and Tom Hiddleston.

Gwyneth has previously appeared disillusioned with her character Pepper and admitted she was keen to expand the role.

She said: "Maybe for the third one, they have to mix it up a little. I don't want to just keep sitting there with a cell phone headpiece."
