Despite Gwyneth Paltrow's best efforts to keep Vanity Fair from running a lengthy article about her, the magazine is moving forward with what is reportedly a takedown piece.
Last month the New York Times claimed that the Oscar-winning actress had been feuding with the glossy, and they even went as far as noting that she had written an email to her famous friends in which she asked that they not speak to the magazine about her.
"Vanity Fair is threatening to put me on the cover of their magazine," Paltrow reportedly wrote in May. "If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline. Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again."
"We started a story on her," VF editor-in-chief Graydon Carter confirmed to the Times of London over the weekend. "We have a very good writer and it'll run." But just how bad is it?
"We wouldn't be doing our job if there wasn't a little bit of tension between Vanity Fair and its subjects," Carter said. "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."
Carter added that after Paltrow's alleged email went public he felt even more compelled to publish the piece. "Well, she sort of forced my hand," he said. "Some famous people believe that they live in a cone of celebrity that protects them. But it doesn't really exist anymore in L.A. unless they stay in."
