Gwyneth Paltrow sobbed after slugging co-star and friend Tim McGraw in new movie Country Strong - because she had never hit anyone in her life.
The couple play husband and wife in the movie and Paltrow had to punch the singer/actor during a drunken tantrum scene.
After faking the punch several times for the cameras, McGraw started calling his co-star names in a bid to get her angry enough to hit him for real - and she did.
The actress says, “I’d never hit anyone in my life, and I didn’t like it at all.”
Director Shana Feste tells the Los Angeles Times, “Tim started being very combative with her and egging her on. She ended up whacking him and she started crying afterward.”
