Gwyneth Paltrow Named ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’

Gwyneth Paltrow has been named the ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’ in a new poll. The Iron Man 3 actress stole the 2012 crown from her BFF Beyoncé, who took landed the top spot last year. 

Gwyneth beat the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Amanda Seyfried, Halle Berry, Kerry Washington and Drew Barrymore – all of whom made it into the top ten, compiled by People magazine in the US. 

So how does she stay so beautiful? It’s all down to her strict health regime, which includes exercising five times a week. Yikes.  

The 40-year-old mum-of-two said: “It makes me look younger and feel strong. When I first started, I thought, ‘I’ll never be good at this. This is a nightmare!’ But now it’s like brushing my teeth, I just do it.” 

Poor Gwynnie hasn’t exactly had the warmest reaction to her new title, though. Some have taken to Twitter to disagree with the result. Ouch. At least she has the odd day off from being a global beauty. Talking about her hubby Chris Martin and their two children Apple and Moses, she adds: “Around the house, I’m in jeans and a T-shirt. I don’t really wear make-up. That’s what they’re used to. 

“He [Chris] will 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.” 

Phew, that’s made us feel better. 

Last night, Gwyneth rocked the red carpet in Hollywood wearing a sheer thigh-baring dress by Antonio Berardi for the Iron Man 3 premiere. She looked INCREDIBLE. Take that, haters.
