Celebs and magazines have long existed in what biologists (and Hollywood agents) like to call a 'symbiotic relationship'. One provides the gossip, while the other repays the favour with 'exposure'. But Gwyneth Paltrow is having none of that. Already on her way to reach millions* of readers with her GOOP empire, Paltrow is sick of being push around by magazine editors.

According to The New York Times, the actress is waging a war on Vanity Fair, rallying friends to boycott the magazine by sending out a group email containing the following:

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

So let's just back up for a minute here. Gwyneth Paltrow is upset that Vanity Fair is "threatening" to put her on the cover of the magazine. Yep, things sure are tough for print media. No wonder VF editor Grayton Carter is going back to a Dead Celebrity cover phase.

And just to make it clear that Paltrow wasn't just having a tantrum, Hollywood heavyweight publicist Leslee Dart weighs in on the Vanity Fair hate: "Everyone grovels to Graydon and other writers there and covets invitations to their parties. They're going to be in for a rude awakening," said Dart, whose clients include Tom Hanks, Woody Allen and Meryl Streep.

Powerful statements. But everyone will still turn up at the Vanity Fair Oscar party, yeah?
