Gwyneth Paltrow Rallies Celebrity Friends Against Vanity Fair

Gwyneth Paltrow Rallies Celebrity Friends Against Vanity Fair (1)

Gwyneth Paltrow is reportedly done with Vanity Fair, as the actress tells her friends to boycott the 100-year-old magazine, its long-term editor Graydon Carter, and the mag’s journalists.

The New York Times ran a story Sunday, claiming that Paltrow refused to work with Vanity Fair back in May (but had covers for People and Good Housekeeping around that time). Paltrow allegedly e-mailed some of her celebrity friends at the time: “Vanity Fair is threatening to put me on the cover of their magazine. If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline. Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again.”

The Times claim that Paltrow is upset of the magazine’s “tough” coverage of Hollywood and its stars, citing the effect of Scientology on Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ marriage, and the production problems of Brad Pitt’s “World War Z” as examples.

Ironically, Carter finds the supposed boycott flattering. He explained to the Times: “We wouldn’t be doing our job if there wasn’t a little bit of tension between Vanity Fair and its subjects. In any given week, I can expect to hear from a disgruntled subject in Hollywood, Washington or on Wall Street. That’s the nature of the beast.”
