She said: “Last night, when I was watching the film, I thought, ‘This is the best job I’ve ever done.’ Normally I can’t stand to see myself but with this film, I felt like it all came together, all that hard work and putting myself in such an uncomfortable position where I felt so scared of how I was going to do it. I’m happy with how it turned out.”

Gwyneth – who has children Apple, six, and Moses, four, with husband Chris Martin – also admitted she had to do more preparation for this role than any other she has played in her career.

She added in an interview with InStyle magazine: “I’ve never prepared for anything more in my life. It was a big responsibility. There was studying with an accent coach, learning to play guitar and, of course, the singing. My voice didn’t have any power and I wanted to try to sing properly. I was so nervous about performing live scenes in the film, that’s so foreign to me. Learning to play guitar was so hard! Luckily, my family tolerated me while I was practicing. I was pretty bad.”
