London: Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow was left in tears after punching her co-star Tim McGraw in her upcoming movie `Country Strong` as she has never hit anyone in her life before.
The actors, who play a couple in the movie required the `Iron Man` star to punch McGraw during a drunken tantrum scene, Contactmusic reported.
After faking the punching scene several times for the cameras, McGraw deliberately started calling his co-star names in a bid to get her angry enough to hit him for real and she did.
"I`d never hit anyone in my life, and I didn`t like it at all," said the 38-year-old actress.
"Tim started being very combative with her and egging her on. She ended up whacking him and she started crying afterward," said director Shana Feste.
