Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t pleased with Vanity Fair

Gwyneth Paltrow

Back in May, Vanity Fair magazine was apparently angling to do a piece on Gwyneth Paltrow, which sounds nice until you realize that it was more or less intended to be a hatchet piece about how Goops is out of touch with the average person. In response, Gwyneth reportedly sent out a mass email to everyone she knew telling them not to talk to VF and to shut them out completely. Via NY Times

Some celebrities and their handlers, accustomed to more control over coverage, are not pleased. In May, Gwyneth Paltrow, who recently cooperated on cover articles for People and Good Housekeeping, asked friends not to deal with Vanity Fair.

Vanity Fair is threatening to put me on the cover of their magazine,” Ms. Paltrow wrote by email, according to someone who had seen the message. “If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline. Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again.”

I can understand why Gwyneth would want to make sure that no one she knew would contribute to a less than flattering piece about her, but did she ever consider that this is a sign of a larger picture? Because let’s face it: Gwyneth is kind of clueless about how the average person lives their life and what exactly they can afford. Also, there was that time she cut-off a school bus on her Vespa, because remember when that happened? Remember when she cut off a school bus on her Vespa while her kid was riding along with her? Yeah.
