Posting the napkin note to Instagram, Paltrow wrote: "When a flight attendant you've never met kinda knows you better than anyone #daddysgirl"

In her 2016 cookbook, My Father's Daughter, the Oscar winner opened up about the close bond she shared with her dad.

"I always feel closest to my father, who was the love of my life until his death in 2002, when I'm in the kitchen," she noted in the book's introduction. "I can still hear him over my shoulder, heckling me, telling me to be careful with my knife, moaning with pleasure over a bite of something in only the way a Jew from Long Island can."
