LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Gwyneth Paltrow shared her Halloween experiences as a child during her appearance on Monday's episode of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' on October 31. The lifestyle mogul was dressed up as 'Gwynnie The Pooh' and spoke about her trick-or-treat tales which included the 'Terminator' actor Arnold Schwarzenegger who was her then-neighbor.

She sported a red T-shirt along with tiny yellow bear ears which matched her full-body bear costume for her appearance on Halloween night on the popular talk show. The 50-year-old actress mentioned how she was persuaded into drenching in gold paint by her 'Goop' marketing team on her 50th birthday at the beginning of the interview. However, the subject of discussion soon shifted toward the theme of the night.

Jimmy questioned Paltrow who is the daughter of the late filmmaker Bruce Paltrow and actress Blythe Danner, about whether she went trick-or-treating around her childhood home in Santa Monica which is filled with A-listers. "Would you be with other celebrity kids? Knocking on Jack Nicholson's door or whatever?" the host of the ABC talk show wondered.

"Arnold Schwarzenegger used to live on our street. We would knock on his door for candy," Gwyneth responded. "Would he give out cigars? I bet he gave out great stuff, huh?" Jimmy inquired further. To which, the 'Iron Man' actress revealed that the Austrian actor did not treat the children outside his door. "I don't remember him giving out stuff. But he's Austrian, so maybe they don't celebrate there," she said.

Jimmy admitted to being quite surprised when the revelation left Paltrow's mouth. However, that is when the actress confessed about toilet-papering Arnold's house in return for no treats. The bit appeared unbelievable to the broadcaster as he questioned the guest of the night if the 'Commando' actor knows the person behind the mishaps at his house. 

Paltrow was keen to keep the mystery of it and asked Jimmy for a favor. "Don't tell him," she requested.

When asked about the motive behind the troublemaking, Paltrow said, "Just being naughty kids." She also admitted that Arnold was not the only neighbor who received the rage of her mischievous group because he was famous. "We did it, unfortunately, to a few houses there. But he was our pride and joy." she continued. 

"Sure. Yeah, you can tell everybody, ''We got the Terminator's house!'' Wow. Sounds like you have some making up to do," Jimmy said in excitement. "I do, I do," Gwyneth testified.
