As Virginia "Pepper" Potts in Iron Man :

Gwyneth Paltrow stars as Virginia “pepper” Potts who is an intelligent, rational and dependable personal secretary to Tony Stark. Pepper’s character is obvious throughout the novel as Tony and her reveal an infatuated attitude towards each other. Being Tony’s personal secretary, she informs Tony on current news that directly affects the company, helps locate enemies through the database in the Stark mansion, and is also the CEO of Stark Industries. Pepper does not immediately determine that the flying crusader, Iron Man, is Tony Stark. The delay of the removal of the iron suit on Tony allows Pepper to discover that the Iron Man is Tony Stark himself. Appalled by the discovery, Pepper reminds Tony of the repercussions of his actions and the dangers of using the suit to fight evil. As the movie progresses, Pepper begins to fall in love with the Iron Man and begins to accept the fact that Iron Man is not going anywhere any time soon.
