Gwyneth Paltrow celebrates her 41st birthday on Friday, so we're celebrating her lengthy movie career.

After Paltrow broke out in the early '90s with "Flesh and Bone" and "Seven," she went on to become both a tabloid fixture and an Oscar winner. She's tried her hand at a little of everything -- slapstick comedy ("Shallow Hal," "View From the Top"), quirky dramedies ("The Royal Tenenbaums," "Running with Scissors"), period pieces ("Shakespeare in Love," "Emma"), action flicks ("Iron Man") and thrillers ("The Talented Mr. Ripley," "Contagion.") Here are the 15 highest-rated movies in which Paltrow has a starring role, according to Rotten Tomatoes.
