When the article failed to make it into the magazine’s latest issue, Paltrow’s efforts “notably stepped up,” the source said.

They said: “She wants the magazine’s reputation destroyed before they can even publish anything on her.”

As Radar previously reported, a mass email Paltrow sent to her friends begging them not to participate in the magazine’s expose was revealed stating: “If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline. Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again.”

Paltrow, 41, has supposedly convinced George Clooney to withdraw from appearing on the magazine’s Hollywood Issue cover, but had trouble with Julia Roberts who is apparently close to the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Graydon Carter.

“[Julia] is ignoring Gwyneth, has no problem with Graydon and is happily still committed to appear on the cover of that issue,” the source revealed, noting that the refusal to bend to Paltrow’s wishes “has probably ended any chance of a friendship between the two of them.”
