Oscar winning star Gwyneth Paltrow arrived on the red carpet Tuesday night (December 14) in Beverly Hills for the premiere of her new film, "Country Strong," a drama where the actress takes on the difficult role of a troubled country starlet.

SOUNDBITE: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow on her role, saying (English):

"I wasn't, you know, I was worried that I had bitten off more than I could chew. But, I worked really hard and I thought I will do the best that I can and I don't know what the end result will be. But, there were a couple of days where I thought that this was intense."

"Country Strong" tells the story of a rising young singer-songwriter (Hedlund) who gets involved with a fallen, emotionally unstable country star, played by Paltrow. The pair embarks on a career comeback tour planned out by her husband/manager (Tim McGraw) and featuring a beauty-queen-turned-singer. Romantic entanglements and old demons though threaten to derail their path to resurrection.

For the 38-year-old Paltrow, whose married to "Coldplay" rocker Chris Martin, the film's live scenes were a challenge.

"The live performances were exhilarating. The first time we did it, I was a bit nervous. But, then I started to have a really good time."

"Country Strong" has a limited opening on December 22, followed by a nationwide release on January 7.
