Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter has compared Gwyneth Paltrow to the Korean dictator after her efforts to boycott the magazine, saying, “Kim Jong-un couldn’t have issued a more blanket demand.”
Last year it was claimed that the magazine was planning a tell-all expose on the actress, which she immediately reacted to by banning her friends and family from speaking to the publication’s writers. This resulted in a more tamed version of the piece being run in December 2013.
Graydon said: “She asked that [friends and family] not speak to Vanity Fair about her or about anything else ever again. Ever Again”.
He also added that he had spoken to Gwyneth about the incident and she asked his advice on how to be more likeable, to which he suggested “putting on 15 pounds”. Nice guy.
