This is so disappointing! We have been waiting for the "epic takedown" forever! After battling it out with Vanity Fair for months, it appears as if Gwyneth Paltrow has won her one-woman war against the mag, which will now be foregoing it's previously planned "epic takedown" of the actress in lieu of doing a much "softer" piece. Allegedly, the 41-year-old Oscar winner has been waging a coup against the publication, urging her A-list friends to boycott the mag, since finding out that Graydon Carter's publication was forging ahead with a scathing in-depth profile on her. The campaign seems to have paid off because the magazine is now doing a much lighter piece, reports RadarOnline.com.
"Whatever they wind up publishing, it’s going to be soft," a source told Radar. "Gwyneth’s campaign against the Vanity Fair article has apparently worked and she’s not as worried as she was three weeks ago."
Oh come on VF, this is so disappointing! How could you give into Gwynnie's demands like that?! We thought we didn't negotiate with terrorists!
Gwyneth and Vanity Fair first locked horns earlier this year when the actress refused to let them do a feature on her. Subsequently, the mag opted to go in a different direction and write an explosive expose, which allegedly uncovered an affair between the "Seven" actress and Elle Macpherson’s billionaire husband Jeff Soffer.
But it appears as though the public skewering of Lady Goop will never see the light of day. Awesome. We're just so glad that an overly entitled actress can use her overly entitled powers to strong arm a major publication into changing their article. We're just so glad that a woman who basically doesn't seem to think poor people exist was able to use her celebrity status to quell the storm of her own making. And we're just so glad Vanity Fair let her do all that. Kudos to all in this situation -- because we're sure Gwynniepants never gets her own way.
Now we kind of want to boycott Graydon Carter's mag -- just for giving in!
