Epic Takedown of Gwyneth Paltrow!
Uh-oh...Gwyneth Paltrow is going is going to be "epically" taken down! I don't know what that means, but I know someone might be concerned... original artical


Vanity Fair intends to publish a cover story about actress Gwyneth Paltrow, despite the fact that the actress tried to sabotage the piece.

Editor Graydon Carter sat down with The Times of London's Janice Turner to discuss the 100th issue of the iconic Hollywood magazine recently and the topic of the Oscar-winning actress came up. Last month, the New York Times reported Paltrow had been asking friends back in May not to deal with Vanity Fair when she found out about plans for the feature. She'd been asked to collaborate on the piece herself but declined. Page Six's sources noted she was concerned after the magazine ran unflattering profiles of Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.

“Vanity Fair is threatening to put me on the cover of their magazine,” she wrote in an email to those close to her, according to the New York Times. “If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline. Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again.”

Although she has appeared on the cover of the magazine multiple times before (beside glowing headlines), the 41-year-old apparently isn't too thrilled with the mag's new "toughened" coverage of celebs, per the New York Times. Us Weekly notes the upcoming article about Paltrow is thought to be "an epic takedown" piece.

Alas, Paltrow's resistance seems to have only made Carter more determined to publish. “We started a story on her. We have a very good writer and it’ll run ... She sort of forced my hand," he told The Times of London.

“Some famous people believe that they live in a cone of celebrity that protects them," he continued. "But it doesn’t really exist any more in LA unless they stay in. I mean, you can be a well-known movie star and go decades without getting an embarrassing picture in a magazine just by leading a quiet, normal life.”

It's worth noting that Vanity Fair never grants picture or copy approval to its subjects. This might make public relations reps "all pissed off with us, but I can live with that," Carter said.

E! News reports Vanessa Grigoriadis is the journalist behind the Paltrow feature. Grigoriadis has profiled a number of famous names before, including Justin Timberlake, Andre Leon Talley, Megan Ellison and Tig Notaro.

Neither a rep for Paltrow nor Vanity Fair could be immediately reached for comment.

That person must have a depressing job if all they do is sit around and nit pic on people all day just to find something for others to fuss about.

I don't know (meaning: is not friends with) Ms Paltrow and neither does the person who interviewed her for this article actually know (meaning: is not friends with) Ms Paltrow.

I made one little comment a while back and you wanted to throw me under a bus! Now, a comment of egregious proportions is made about your beloved Gwynnies and they get a pass? I call Poopyhead on you Mr. Cantor! Drinking Beverage

Just be careful while not doing it, because, you know, it can be tricky.

Well, somedays I'm more irrational than others; since I spent the past couple of days lost in my Gwynnies, I'm kinda chill. Big Grin

(Never mind the fact that premeditation adds to the sentencing guidelines - dummyheads. Dodgy )

And! The girl is a total elitist and has some unrealistic expectations concerning the *cough, cough* "integrity" of her chosen profession. But she's also totally sweet and adorable; would not approve of any excess on my part. Besides, such demonstrations would be more about me than her.

And! Looks like a good opportunity to practice my apologetics. Tongue
