Gwyneth Paltrow Shines on "The Tonight Show"

'Huawei': A foreshadowing name?

Chinesepod's Carlie discusses the meaning of the name 'Huawei' in light of the recent national security concerns of the Whitehouse


Gwyneth Paltrow is usually radiating beauty but even she outdid herself last night during her appearance on "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien." Under the studio lights, Paltrow's legs looked borderline plastic behind the odd shine gleaming off of them. Once the segment ended, viewers were left wondering, what exactly was she wearing on them?

Clearly knowing curiosities would be running high after the show, Paltrow's publicist, Stephen Huvane, wrote an e-mail to the Daily News explaining what the deal was. Apparently, before the show, a makeup person rubbed moisturizer on the actress' legs.

"It was clearly not quite absorbed in completely," Huvane clarified.

Whether O'Brien didn't notice or didn't wish to bring them up, Paltrow's glowing gams went unacknowledged during the segment. Instead the show host focused the conversation on Paltrow's 3-year-old son, Moses, and her role as Pepper Potts in the upcoming movie, "Iron Man 2," which slated for release in May 2010.
