The months-long feud between Gwyneth Paltrow and Vanity Fair is ending, reportedly after Gwyneth swallowed her ego a little bit and placed a call to VF editor-in-chief Graydon Carter. A source told US Weekly, “Gwyneth and Graydon spoke on the phone a few weeks ago. They worked out some of their differences.”
For those who weren’t keeping track of the feud, it all started when Vanity Fair threatened to write a tell-all expose on Gwyneth after she refused to cooperate with them on a story. Neither party backed down, with Carter telling reporters that Gwyneth had ‘forced his hand’ and that the story would definitely be running. However, this was several months and ago we’ve seen nothing. There were all sorts of rumors about the story focusing on Gwyneth’s alleged cheating and several other dark secrets from her past – but still, nothing concrete.
But the source also adds that even when the magazine was running the story, it was never going to be as scandalous as the tabloids made it out to be, explaining, “The story was never going to be as bad as tabloids were guessing. That whole angle about the alleged affairs was something that was made up by Page Six and was never something that anyone at Vanity Fair believed was legitimate and was never going to be in a story they were working on.”
However, it looks like the feud has finally ended with Gwyneth’s heart-to-heart with Graydon, with VF backing down completely. If there’s a story published on Gwyneth now, it will be glowing, with nary a negative thing to say about her. So much for Graydon Carter not backing down, huh? Even with all of the bluster, it’s clear that Vanity Fair wasn’t in a position to make such a powerful celebrity angry without making more enemies, especially with other power players such as Gwyneth’s publicist and her cadre of A-list friends.
