NY Magazine has an interesting article on the celebrity infested city. There is a section where the top paparazzi reveal their favorite stars and more. Steve Sands, who is one of the photographers interviewed, even hinted that Gwyneth asked him to take photos of Apple and she may have made some money off the deal as well. Here's more:
Gwyneth Paltrow’s baby photo of Apple. That made a lot of money—$500,000 to $750,000. Maybe even a million. She asked me to do it. I e-mailed her, and she said, “I’m going to have my baby. Why don’t you come shoot it?”
Did you pay her for the photo?
Sandra Bullock asked a friend of mine on a movie set, “What did Steve pay Gwyneth for that picture?” and he said, “He didn’t pay her anything.” Sandra said, “Bullshit. No way a celebrity’s going to do something like that without taking any money.” Well, guess what? She was right. But that’s all I’m going to say.
