It’s not just Len that is a dodgy rooting ratbag

Ratbags never like seeing the results of their handy work in the press…including Gwyneth Paltrow

Hollywood A-lister Gwyneth Paltrow apparently doesn’t subscribe to the believe that all press is good press, as the actress is likely furious that Vanity Fair is going ahead with a planned feature about her months after she sent an email to her famous friends imploring them to ignore calls from the magazine.

“She sort of forced my hand,” VF editor-in-chief Graydon Carter told The Times of London of Paltrow’s email. “We started a story on her. We have a very good writer and it’ll run.” 

In September, an email from Paltrow to her celebrity pals leaked, in which the actress urged her friends to boycott the magazine. “Vanity Fair is threatening to put me on the cover of their magazine,” Paltrow wrote. “If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline. Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again.”

Early reports suggested that Paltrow’s unwillingness to be profiled in VF stemmed from the magazine’s recent unflattering stories on several stars, including its 2012 profile of Tom Cruise in which the magazine revealed damning details about the actor’s apparent involvement with the Church of Scientology. However, a recent story in Page Six claims that Vanity Fair is investigating rumours that Paltrow had an affair in 2008 with wealthy real estate developer Jeff Soffer.

    Some things should be allowed to remain private. I have no interest whether Tom Cruise or other stars conducted affairs – after all they are not running our largest city, or otherwise involved in our daily lives. I do have issues with Mr Brown acting in a manner that is inappropriate to the office he currently holds.

    I wouldn’t hump Paltrow if she paid me. Dog tucker!

    • Saccharomyces

      For real? Well if you get an offer just send her my way, I’d happily have a lash!

      • Muffin

        Urgh, she would just look like she is going to cry for the whole 2 minutes.

        • Saccharomyces

          Lol, if she was forced to root me she probably would be crying, I’m a fat, ugly bastard!

          • Muffin

            I don’t know… After that effeminate Chris Martin she might appreciate crying through a bit of rough

    I see the mongrel is now bleating for protection from media scrutiny for the personal lives of those in the public eye. Does’nt he realise that the two go hand in hand and if he wants privacy, he should bugger off and get a job as a drone in sector 67G.

      For Len it’s not the indiscretion that’s the issue. It never was as he has a starfucker mentality. It’s always been the fact he got caught.

    • Blue Water Coastie

      When will he get the point! There is no media scrutiny on his private life, only his public life. He fucked a public council employee at the public council office for 2 years FFS!

    Another fool that wants her cake and to eat it too. These people court the media, the paparazzi , the star lifestyle but when they feel their private lives are being invaded go all feral. They can’t have it both ways, their lives aren’t private. Len Brown also loves the job when the media pumps up his ego, he choose to pimp himself so he has to live with the consequences
