E Winning an Oscar was the greatest moment of GWYNETH PALTROW's life - but the effects were difficult to live with.
The SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE (1998) beauty was so shocked to receive the award for best actress back in 1998 she "fell apart".
She says, "I was very much undone by it. It was just too much. Afterwards I felt I went from being the underdog to being the person everyone was sick of. "I wanted to hide. It was a very difficult time." (KMW/WNSEX/NFA)
