Gwyneth Paltrow Named Most Beautiful Woman By People Magazine

GOOP guru Gwyneth Paltrow has the goods!

The 40-year-old actress has been named People magazine’s 2013 Most Beautiful Woman.

However, Gwyneth and rocker husband Chris Martin’s kids (Apple, 8, and Moses, 7) might not realize their mom has that title.

“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.

In fact, her Coldplay frontman husband likes to poke fun at her dressed-down style.

“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,” she said.

The “Iron Man 3” star says exercise is the key to looking good.

“It makes me look younger and feel strong,” the actress, who does the Tracy Anderson Method five days a week, explained. “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.”

With Apple getting close to her tween years, Gwyneth explained that her daughter is starting to become interested in getting glammed up.

“When we’re home sometimes, she’ll put on mascara. And sometimes I’ll let her wear something out to dinner – but just a little dab,” she told the mag. “Also having a father who adores you the way that he adores her is very good for your body image. The more we can love her and let her be who she is, the more confident she’ll feel.”
