Academy award winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow is named as the world’s most beautiful woman for 2013 by People magazine dethroning pop diva Beyonce . "It's very sweet and I'm so embarrassed, but I'm so happy." The actress said reacting to top honor she received.
Paltrow, the 40-year-old mother of two children, credits her strict working out out schedule for keeping her glowing as she grows older. “It makes me look younger and feel strong,” Paltrow told the magazine. “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.”
It is the fourth time Paltrow, who is married to Coldplay singer Chris Martin, has been named to the magazine’s annual beautiful people issue, but the first time landing the coveted cover as most beautiful woman. She joins the elite club of fellow actresses Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts, Halle Berry and Jennifer Aniston to top the list.
