Gwyneth Paltrow‘s war with Vanity Fair doesn’t look like it’s ever going to end. She’s not backing down, and they’re not backing down.
The whole thing started when Gwyneth refused to participate in an extensive profile the magazine was conducting, which means it probably wasn’t very flattering to begin with. I have no doubt that the piece deals with the way the audience perceives her to be high maintenance, why her image with the public isn’t very good, and her career has taken such a downturn in the past few years [with the exception of Iron Man]. There’s also the fact that there are a lot of rumors about her marriage, and there is a lot of noise about affairs and cheating.
Graydon Carter, the editor of Vanity Fair, was recently interviewed by the Times during the 100th anniversary of VF, and while he was clearly uncomfortable discussing Gwyneth, he says, “We started a story on her. We have a very good writer and it’ll run…She sort of forced my hand.”
Damn, Gwyneth. Way to piss off one of the most powerful editors in the industry. Graydon also added, “She’ll find Los Angeles very different and very difficult. Some famous people believe that they live in a cone of celebrity that protects them… 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.”
Basically, he’s hinting at Gwyneth’s life being anything but ‘quiet’ or ‘normal’, meaning that she clearly has a lot of secrets that she doesn’t want the public finding out.
What do you guys think? Do you think this tell-all will be as scandalous as Graydon is making it sound? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
