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.
