Gwyneth Paltrow Named PEOPLE’s Most Beautiful Woman in the World
Other beauties on the list include Kerry Washington, Amanda Seyfried, Zooey Deschanel, Jane Fonda, Jennifer Lawrence (duh), Kelly Rowland (who appears makeup free and still looks better than we do), Halle Berry (surprise!), Drew Barrymore and Pink.
Paltrow revealed that the Most Beautiful title isn’t one she’s accustomed to at home.
“Around the house, I’m in jeans and a T-shirt. I don’t really wear makeup. That’s what they’re used to,” she told the mag of her two kids, Apple, 8, and Moses, 7.
She said that her husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, isn’t too used to it either. “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.”
Despite not dolling up too much on her own, Paltrow, who recently came under fire for allegedly sexualizing children by shilling overpriced bikinis on Goop, revealed that her 8-year-old daughter loves mascara.
“When we’re home sometimes, she’ll put on mascara,” Paltrow said. “And sometimes I’ll let her wear something out to dinner — but just a little dab.”
While Apple may be getting a relatively early start with eye makeup, don’t worry: There are no daddy issues here to assure she’d get an early start with anything else. “Having a father who adores you the way that he adores her is very good for your body image,” Gwyn said. “The more we can love her and let her be who she is, the more confident she’ll feel.”
As for how she keeps herself looking good, Paltrow attributed everything, once again, to her trainer Tracy Anderson.
“[Working out] makes me look younger and feel strong. When I first started, I thought, ‘I’ll never be good at this. This is a nightmare!’” she lamented. “But now it’s like brushing my teeth, I just do it.”
Gwyneth was also named PEOPLE’s Best Dressed Woman back in September. If we had to guess, we’d say someone on the magazine’s editorial staff just might have a little crush on the blonde beauty.
