    Gwyneth Paltrow may be a gluten-free Goop goddess, but the blond beauty knows when to fire back.

    As the feud between the 41-year-old stunner and Vanity Fair continues, new reports claim the Oscar winner is now asking her A-list friends to boycott V.F.'s annual Academy Awards' bash.

    Paltrow's rep, Stephen Huvane, responded to the rumors, telling E! News, the claims are "absolutely false. She has never asked anyone not to attend."

    The battle between Chris Martin's missus and Vanity Fair originally began after the actress, upon hearing that V.F. was planning an article that seemed to have turned into a why-people-love-to-hate-on-Gwyneth type of piece, sent emails to people in her circle, encouraging them to not cooperate with the magazine, sources confirmed to E! News.

    Paltrow's rep also responded to the email allegations, confirming the reports that Gwyneth wrote to her friends, asking them not to speak with the publication.

    "This supposed feud is blown complete out of proportion," he said. "The V.F. story that they wrote and may or may not run is not a takedown at all. Gwyneth did not participate because we were not promoting anything for the month they wanted to run the story which was October. She never asked anyone to boycott the party, she just asked her friends not to give quotes about her." 

    While the star's rep claims the magazine "may or may not run" the piece on Paltrow, Vanity Fair's Editor-in-Chief, Graydon Carter, has sung a different tune, telling London's Times Magazine in an interview published on Sunday, Oct. 13:

    "We started a story on her. We have a very good writer and it'll run," he said. "Well, she sort of forced my hand."

    Carter did not address any specifics in the article, which writer Vanessa Grigoriadis is said to be penning. Her previous work for V.F. includes pieces about Justin Timberlake, comedian Tig Notaro and producer Megan Ellison.

    Meanwhile, Apple and Moses' mama has been keeping busy in the wake of the controversy. She most recently flaunted her extremely toned tummy while attending a launch dinner for The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet at the Arts Club in London on Monday, Oct. 28, and she also opened up in Red magazine's December issue about ignoring her haters.
