Vanity Fair and Gwyneth Paltrow have been feuding for a minute now, and it all stems from Gwyneth telling any and everybody never to do Vanity Fair because of a article that they plan to release on her. Editor Graydon Carter sat down with The Times of London’s Janice Turner to discuss the 100th issue of the iconic Hollywood magazine recently and the topic of the Oscar-winning actress came up.
“Vanity Fair is threatening to put me on the cover of their magazine,” she wrote in an email to those close to her, according to the New York Times. “If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline. Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again.”
Because of her strong stance against the magazine they are more determined to publish the article.. The head states that she forced his hand after trying to sabotage everything.
“Some famous people believe that they live in a cone of celebrity that protects them,” he continued. “But it doesn’t really exist any more in LA unless they stay in. I mean, you can be a well-known movie star and go decades without getting an embarrassing picture in a magazine just by leading a quiet, normal life.” Vanity Fair never grants picture or copy approval to its subjects. This might make public relations reps “all pissed off with us, but I can live with that,” Carter said.
Paltrow’s a mediocre actress who hasn’t worked in sometime. She should be happy some magazine thinks she’s still relevant. Sometimes the only thing close to a celebrity’s ego and over-inflated sense of self importance are the same issues about members of the media that cover celebrities.
