People magazine has named Gwyneth Paltrow as the World’s Most Beautiful Woman for 2013.
The 40-year-old actress tops the magazine’s annual list of the “World’s Most Beautiful,” announced Wednesday.
Commenting on her selection, Paltrow says: “Around the house, I’m in jeans and a T-shirt. I don’t really wear makeup.”
She credits her workout routine for keeping her looking young and feeling strong. And Paltrow is indeed something of a health guru: her lifestyle website and newsletter, GOOP, offers tips and tricks on how to dress, eat and live a healthful, fulfilling life according to Gwyneth (and her budget).
Paltrow is married to Coldplay rocker Chris Martin. They have two children, Apple, 8, and Moses, 7.
The actress is followed on this year’s list by Kerry Washington, who starred in last year’s Django Unchained, and Amanda Seyfried, of Les Miserables. Rounding out the Top 5 are New Girl star Zooey Deschanel and 75-year-old actress Jane Fonda. See the Top 10 below.
