Gwyneth Paltrow urges friends to boycott Vanity Fair Oscars bash

Things are starting to get very ugly between Gwyneth Paltrow and Vanity Fair.


In the latest spat between the actress and the publication, Gwyneth is reportedly urging her celebrity friends to boycott the magazine’s annual Oscar party.


“Gwyneth feels her relationship with the magazine has been destroyed and she’s urging pals not just to avo­id doing business with the magazine, but to skip the mag’s Oscar party as well,” said a source.

The now-famous feud between the 41-year-old lifestyle guru and the magazine began back in May, when Vanity Fair announced its intentions to publish “an epic takedown” of the star following her refusal to cooperate on a cover story.


According to reports, Gwyneth was so offended by their hard-hitting approach that she penned a letter to a list of powerful friends.


“Vanity Fair is threatening to put me on the cover of their magazine,” she wrote. “If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline. Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again.”


Meanwhile, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Graydon Carter has responded in turn: “We started a story on her. We have a very good writer and it’ll run… Well, she sort of forced my hand.”


Gwyneth has been a regular at the annual Oscars bash for years; it’s arguably one of the glitziest fêtes of the year and is attended by Hollywood A-listers like George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence.
