It's no secret that Gwyneth Paltrow is having a moment. She transformed into an action star for Iron Man 3, which hit theaters today. She's become a lifestyle inspiration in fitness, fashion, healthy living, cooking, and so much more for women around the world. She's a devoted wife and mom to her two kids, and she's still able to keep it real — and refreshingly funny! — with her girlfriends. In our I'm a Huge Fan: Gwyneth Paltrow series, watch as our winner, Sara from San Antonio, TX, comes to LA to embark on the experience of a lifetime, all leading up to her big interview with Gwyneth.
Watch as Sara gets a peek into what makes Gwyneth tick — talking to her business partners Tracy Anderson and David Babaii, seeing her favorite LA spots, trying out her healthy cooking, visiting her fashion BFF and go-to designer, and getting into the action at the stunt studio that challenged Gwyneth in a way she's never been challenged before. See it all through Gwyneth's eyes with her insight into all these things, and watch as she chats with her biggest fan about life, love, and her favorite Coldplay songs.

Boop bee boop . . . phone in need of a new case? The PowerA iPhone 5 cases featuring the dutiful droids of Star Wars may be your only hope. Better yet, in honor of May the 4th (be with you), the tech protection inspired by the space opera's trustiest companions are on sale ($35, originally $40).
The Force is strong with the R2-D2 and gold-plated C-3PO covers. The plastic, reinforced shell will protect your mobile device from falls, nicks, and scratches, but what we're loving most are the raised edges and grooves that make this tech protection look and feel like a droid from a galaxy far, far away.
Not only is today May 4, but it's also Free Comic Book Day — a geek extravaganza, to be sure! In case you had forgotten to prioritize a visit to your local comic book store to snag free copies of Action Time Buddies, Grimm, and dozens of others, Mr. Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman, has come to the rescue to remind us all. Watch Hugh talk comics and give a quick plug for the new Wolverine film below.
Today is May 4, otherwise known as Star Wars Day. If you encounter anyone wearing fanboy paraphernalia (though, of course, you're wearing geek gear with pride too) , make sure to greet them properly by saying, "May the fourth be with you!"
