Gwyneth Paltrow could have caused an accident last week when she darted in front of a school bus on her Vespa after picking up her children at school.

TMZ wrote that Paltrow "might be the worst driver in all of Los Angeles," posting a 35-second video of Paltrow narrowly cutting off a school bus, riding with her child on the back. The bus driver slammed on the brakes to avoid plowing into the actress.

Seconds later, Chris Martin emerged behind her with their other child on another Vespa.

"School buses are giant and yellow and generally pretty hard to miss," wrote Monday. "So we can't really understand why Gwyneth didn't just wait the 2 minutes for traffic to slow down before leaving the school."

Paltrow did not return phone calls to comment on the incident.

The Daily Mail spotted Paltrow on her moped again this week with her daughter.

"Gwyneth, who recently turned 40, was back in the saddle with her daughter riding pillion despite her terrifying near miss," wrote the Daily Mail in an article posted Wednesday with photos. "This time she had added cameras to the front and rear of her white Vespa for some reason. Dressed in khaki three quarter length trousers and a black leather jacket, she had not lost her confidence on the road."

US Weekly reported Tuesday that Paltrow emailed celebrity friends asking them not to speak to Vanity Fair for a possible story.

"Vanity Fair is threatening to put me on the cover of their magazine," Paltrow reportedly wrote in May. "If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline. Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again."

Vanity Fair Editor Graydon Carter defended the magazine's coverage.

"On any given week, I can expect to hear from a disgruntled subject in Hollywood, Washington, or on Wall Street. That's the nature of the beast," she said.
