Gwyneth Paltrow has earned her fair share of haters over the years, and it seems that authors can be added to that list now. The GOOP founder and cookbook author attended a Hamptons book signing over the weekend to promote her latest book, It's All Good. But several of her fellow authors at the book signing objected to Paltrow appearing and accused her of pretentious behavior.

Author Christina Oxenberg sat next to Paltrow at the book signing "due to the inflexibility of the alphabet" and said that the Iron Man actress caused a commotion with her presence.  "The divinity in question arrived with hubby, children, and a couple of massive bodyguards," blogged Oxenberg. "The worshippers blocked my view of the whole world, abusing my tiny territory upon which to abandon their trash or lean their sorry a*ses."

Oxenberg said the bodyguards hired by Paltrow bullied her and even tried to block the author from returning to her designated seat. "Gwyneth's bodyguards blocked my re-entry despite my assurance I was a just an author and pointing at my name tag, 'No!' they growled, body blocking me," continued Oxenberg. "So I was forced to crawl under the table."

Other authors were also not pleased with Paltrow attending the event. Jay McInerney tweeted: "Author's night at East Hampton Library highjacked by movie stars with ghost-written cookbooks." Meanwhile, Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell also tweeted:  "Author's worst nightmare: sitting next to Gwyneth at a signing."

The accusations of Paltrow hiring a ghostwriter for her books have been growing louder in recent months and have even made been made by the New York Times. However, Paltrow has continued to deny hiring someone to write for her. "Love @nytimes dining section but this weeks facts need checking," she tweeted in response. "No ghost writer on my cookbook, I wrote every word myself."

Of course, this isn't the only Paltrow-related news that has angered people lately. Several of her recent comments have led many to label Paltrow as pretentious, including that she doesn't let her children watch TV in English and would "rather die than let my kid eat Cup-a-Soup."
