Actress Gwyneth Paltrow invests in cannabis company

Gwyneth Paltrow may be a big-time star now but like so many teens, started off her career as a babysitter! And now, her childcare past is paying dividends.

The Oscar winner, 49, used to change the diapers of then-future entrepreneur Luke Anderson. Fast forward a few decades and he is now the co-founder of Cann, a cannabis-infused beverage brand.
While many celebrities quickly invested in the brand, the entrepreneur did not have the same luck with his one-time babysitter.
