UPDATE: Apparently the article could be focused on Gwyneth’s alleged affair with billionaire Jeff Soffer back in 2008.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Earlier this year, Vanity Fair magazine said they were going to be doing an exposé on Gwyneth Paltrow, which she apparently did not appreciate one bit. After Gwyneth reportedly told all her friends and family to just ignore anyone from VF asking for quotes, the magazine has reportedly decided to double down on the story, according to Page Six

“We started a story on her,” editor-in-chief Graydon Carter told The Times in London. “We have a very good writer and it’ll run.” He also told London’s Times that he felt more compelled to run the Paltrow piece after her alleged email went public. “Well, she sort of forced my hand,” he explained. “Some famous people believe that they live in a cone of celebrity that protects them,” he said. “But it doesn’t really exist anymore in LA unless they stay in.

I don’t think Gwyneth is necessarily a bad person, but like a lot of celebrities, I think their world view kind of begins and ends at themselves, and when you consider how much money they make and how much of celebrity culture kids consume … I’m not saying celebrities have to be perfect little role models, but there does need to be some level of accountability when you’re living your life in the spotlight. Otherwise, you start cutting off school buses while driving your kids around on mopeds.
