People Magazine’s 2013 Most Beautiful List

She may be the Most Hated Hollywood Celebrity according to Star magazine, but over at People they love her. The publication crowned Gwyneth Paltrow the Most Beautiful Woman in 2013. She takes over the reigns from her BFF Beyoncé who graced their annual Most Beautiful In The World issue last year.

“Around the house, I’m in jeans and a T-shirt. I don’t really wear makeup. That’s what [my children are] used to,” she tells People. Of her husband Chris Martin she says, “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.”

  • Patrick Sean

    Love PINK! She is amazing!

  • Rodknee

    Seyfreid, Washington and Berry are all three more gorgeous and deserving of the title. I like Gwen but not for her looks. She is a very plain looking person. Obviously attractive, but no where near being “Worlds Most Beautiful”. Lets be real here.

  • Raph

    I love how they call that the world’s most beautiful and pick celebs from hollywood only. Why isn’t it simply called hollywood’s most beautiful women?

  • Steve-O
