Gwyneth Paltrow Tells Friends Not to Speak with Vanity Fair

Gwyneth Paltrow is making things difficult for Vanity Fair. The New York Post is reporting that the actress is telling anyone that knows her not to cooperate with the magazine, which is working on a cover story about her. Apparently Paltrow didn’t think recent Vanity Fair celebrity puff pieces were puffy enough, so she doesn’t want any part of the article.

Despite Paltrow’s opposition, Vanity Fair remains undaunted. “The magazine said it was going to proceed with the story without her, so her team has been asking people not to talk at all,” a source explained to the Post.

We don’t understand what all the fuss is about. Celebrity profiles are always favorable. And besides, if she’s worried that this article is going to make people say “You know, this Paltrow lady sure seems entitled, out-of-touch and egotistical,” it might be a little late for that.
