Gwyneth Paltrow revealed she would have made her film debut alongside a '90s rapper, it wasn't for an influential family member.

The actress said she was offered the female lead in 1991's "Cool As Ice."

"My dad wouldn't let me do it," she said.

"I was like, 'But dad, it's like a part in a movie.' He was like, 'Nope!'" she recounted.
