People Magazine Crowns Gwyneth Paltrow "World’s Most Beautiful Woman"

Gwyneth Paltrow has had a busy month. After taking first place in Star Magazine’s annual “Most Hated Person In Hollywood” Top 20, the actress has been hailed as the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” 2013 by People Magazine.

Paltrow told People she was stunned by their choice. When I first heard that I was gonna be on the cover of People’s ‘Most Beautiful’ issue, I honestly thought someone was playing a joke on me,” she said. “And I had to reread the email three times. I was like, ‘This can’t be true. I’ve developed dyslexia. I’m not reading right.’”

Paltrow, whose eating, cooking, and parenting habits have been the subject of recent controversy, published her second cookbook, “It’s All Good,” earlier this month, and will be appearing in the upcoming “Iron Man” film, the third installment of the blockbuster franchise.

But despite her success, the actress joked that her glamorous look is an illusion. “”Around the house, I’m in jeans and a T-shirt. I don’t really wear makeup,” she told People. “That’s what they’re used to,” she says. Her husband Chris Martin is a good sport: “He’ll make a joke about it. If I’ve gotten fully dressed up, he’ll be like, ‘Oh, wow! You’re Gwyneth Paltrow!’ Because he’s used to seeing me in like baggy shorts and frizzy hair.”

Other beautiful people included in this issue are Jennifer Lawrence, Kerry Washington, Amanda Seyfried, Jane Fonda and Pink.
