Gwyneth Paltrow has been named the world's most beautiful woman for 2013 in People's annual list of, well, beautiful famous ladies.
"When I first heard that I was going to be on the cover of People's most beautiful issue, I honestly thought someone was playing a joke on me and I had to reread the email three times," the 40-year-old said in a behind-the-scenes video about the photo shoot. "I was like, 'This can't be true.'"
Also included on the list: Kerry Washington, Amanda Seyfried, Jane Fonda, Jennifer Lawrence, Kelly Rowland, Halle Berry, Drew Barrymore, Pink and Zooey Deschanel, to name a few. It's kind of cute, we think, because Deschanel's "New Girl" is Paltrow's current favorite TV show. Birds of a feather?
Last year's honor went to Paltrow pal Beyonce, who said at the time, "I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth."
