Can Gwyneth Paltrow claim victory over Vanity Fair?
RadarOnline.com has learned that the famed magazine, which had planned a scathing take-down piece on the actress, is making it much softer.
And that has opened the door for A-list actors, like George Clooney, to play ball with Vanity Fair after Radar revealed that Paltrow had begged her famous friends to avoid the magazine and boycott its Oscar party.
"Whatever they wind up publishing, it's going to be soft," the source said. "Gwyneth's campaign against the Vanity Fair article has apparently worked and she's not as worried as she was three weeks ago.
"But the article is still coming out and she still refuses to participate in it."
It was rumored that the VF article might include Paltrow's possible infidelity with billionaire Miami hotelier Jeff Sofer — something she has called a "big lie” -- as well as other salacious details about the star's life.
As Radar has reported, Paltrow sent a mass email to her pals begging them not to participate in the magazine’s expose, stating: “If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline. Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again.”
