Gwyneth Paltrow Slams New York Times for Reporting She Hired a Ghostwriter
Despite the paper's report to the contrary, the actress and cookbook author insists: "I wrote every word myself."
Gwyneth Paltrow has a bone to pick with The New York Times.
The multi-hyphenate actress is slamming the paper's report that she employed a ghostwriter to pen her debut cookbook My Father's Daughter.
"Love @nytimes dining section but this weeks facts need checking. No ghost writer on my cookbook, I wrote every word myself," Paltrow wrote on her Facebook page over the weekend.
To add insult to injury, Paltrow's face was front and center as a main image for a March 13 column entitled "I Was a Cookbook Ghostwriter," written by Julia Moskin for the dining and wine section.
"Julia Turshen, who is writing a second cookbook with Gwyneth Paltrow after their collaboration on My Father's Daughter, began as the ghostwriter for the ghostwriter on a book by Mario Batali, tagging along with a notebook as the chef filmed a culinary romp through Spain," wrote Moskin in her piece, which also name-checked Rachael Ray, Martha Stewart and Paula Deen among the busy celebrity chefs who use ghostwriters to put together their recipe books.
Paltrow - who runs a lifestyle website, GOOP, in addition to acting and sometimes-singing -- released My Father's Daughter last April; as it happened, the book wound up in the New York Times' best-seller list.
