Gwyneth Paltrow has reacted angrily to an upcoming magazine feature which delves into her friendship with American tycoon, Jeff Soffer.

Paltrow has told friends not to comment or give quotes to Vanity Fair after she heard that the glossy was running an extensive article on her.

According to a report in The Daily Telegraph, the 41-year-old actress who has two children with Coldplay singer Chris Martin is annoyed that the magazine was looking into her friendship with Soffer (43) who is a Florida-based billionaire.

Paltrow is said to have become close to him in 2008, when he reopened the the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami. Her spokesman has rejected any suggestion of an affair as “one big lie” and that Soffer is nothing more than a long-term friend.

Soffer married supermodel turned businesswoman Elle Macpherson (49) earlier this year.
