Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow lifted her boycott of a leading magazine after making amends with publishing mogul Graydon Carter in a candid phone call last year.
The Iron Man star was rumored to have sent out an email urging her famous friends to avoid Vanity Fair after she found out Carter and his team were planning to run a frank feature on her.
Carter has now opened up about the feud and revealed the actress lifted her Vanity Fair ban last October after a heated discussion with the editor, during which he urged her to put on weight to win over fans.
In the editor’s letter for the upcoming March issue of Vanity Fair, Carter writes, “Not to bore you with the details, but the whole Vanity Fair – Gwyneth Paltrow brouhaha began innocently enough at a routine morning editorial meeting last spring.
“We were reviewing assignments and batting around story ideas, and at one point I idly mentioned that I would be interested in reading something on Gwyneth Paltrow… She asked that (her friends and family) not speak to Vanity Fair about her, or about anything else ever again. Ever. Never. (North Korean leader) Kim Jong-un couldn’t have issued a more blanket demand. And then things just went haywire… In October, Gwyneth called me. We talked for about 20 minutes about the story and her reaction, or over-reaction, to it. At one point, she asked my advice as to what to do to get the ‘haters’ on her side. I suggested putting on 15 pounds. I joked that it works for me. She replied I had put on much more than that. Which I thought was fair and funny.”
The highly-anticipated article on Paltrow features in the March issue.
