In real life, of course, Gwyneth is no longer with Brad Pitt and has since taken up with Oscar-winner Ben Affleck ; but we know you knew all that. Unlike the Hitchcock film, Paltrow's Emily is having a torrid affair with downtown artist Viggo Mortensen, and, when Douglas finds out his young spouse is cheating on him, he hires Mortensen to kill her. In the original Hitchcock film, which was based on a stage play, there were two completely different characters playing Grace Kelly 's lover and the man whom Ray Milland hires to kill Kelly. Things get complicated when Mortensen's character isn't sure he wants to go through with his lucrative assignment, and the audience is kept guessing as to who's going to come out on top -- or alive -- between Paltrow and Douglas.

Michael Douglas is about as good as anyone can be at playing greedy, cold-hearted SOBs. He's also good at playing nice guys and victims--he's a versatile pro--but when he goes into his Gordon Gekko mode there's an extra charge on the screen, because we know everything his character says and does will be deceitful and self-interested. Gwyneth Paltrow plays Emily, his wife.
