Tis the season for peace, generosity and, apparently, good will toward Vanity Fair.
Just in time for Christmas, Gwyneth Paltrow and editor-in-chief Graydon Carter have reportedly buried the hatchet some months after the Oscar winner encouraged friends not to cooperate with the magazine if it came to them asking questions for an upcoming article about her.
A broader swath of media got wind of the bad blood after the New York Times published an article in September about how Vanity Fair has been more being more willing to "chafe" the big Hollywood stars it covers these days, resulting in more ruffled feathers among the A-list set, and included that detail about Paltrow.
While Paltrow's camp had no official comment at the time, Carter told London's Times Magazine in October that the actress "sort of forced" his hand and they were moving forward with the article in question.
It was later reported by Page Six that VF was actually working on an exposé that touched on possible infidelity on Paltrow's part in 2008 involving real estate mogul Jeffrey Soffer, who has since married Elle Macpherson.
Paltrow's rep then told E! News, "Jeff is a longtime friend of Gwyneth's and there was never a romantic relationship between them." A source also subsequently told us that "everything" Page Six reported about the proposed article was "not true," either.
But now, the latest twist in this real-life only-in-showbiz soap opera according to Us Weekly is that Paltrow and Carter spoke a few weeks ago and, a source told the mag, "worked out some of their differences."
Moreover, VF's Paltrow story—provided it runs at all—reportedly won't chafe as much as it was previously going to.
The Thanks for Sharing star's rep has not returned a request for comment. Vanity Fair had no comment on the reconciliation story.
