Gwyneth Paltrow and Manny Pacquiao in the recording booth together?

The Oscar-winning actress, who was named World's Most Beautiful Woman by People last week, said that she would love to sing a duet with Pacquiao so she could "entertain the Filipinos" during an appearance on 24 Oras, a news program on GMA 7 in the Philippines.

Pacquiao, the eight-division boxing champion and congressman in the Philippines, has a well-documented career in music. He released an full-length debut, Laban Nating Lahat Ito, under Star Records in 2006, followed by singles in 2007 ("Pac-Man Punch") and '09 ("Lahing Pinoy").

He made his English-language debut with a cover/remake of Dan Hill's soppy "Sometimes When We Touch," which cracked the top 10 of Billboard's secondary adult contemporary chart in 2011.


That was later followed by a rendition of "Imagine", sung with Will Ferrell:

At the very least, a collab with Pacquiao could earn Paltrow a measure of redepmption for Duets, her 2000 film about the competitive-karaoke circuit that was a box-office dud.
