Yep, you read that right — Pepper Potts is dating the Hulk in the upcoming romantic dramedy, Thanks for Sharing. But the film, directed by The Kids Are All Right screenwriter Stuart Blumberg, is about real people who are far from superheroes. It focuses on Mark Ruffalo’s character, Adam, who is a recovering sex addict who’s recently reentered the world of dating. Paltrow plays Phoebe who is coming off a recent relationship with an alcoholic and has sworn off addicts of all types — until Adam comes into her life. Although one look at her Tracy Anderson-ed bod in the clip below and we’re pretty sure she’s addicted to the pilates reformer.
In the intense scene below, Paltrow and Ruffalo are finding themselves in a difficult spot as Ruffalo deals with being in a new relationship after five years of sex “sobriety.”
Thanks for Sharing also stars Josh Gad, Tim Robbins (as Ruffalo’s sponsor), and Alecia Moore (Pink). The film opens on Sept. 20.
