People's Most Beautiful 2013

Eight days after being dubbed the Most Hated Celebrity in a Star magazine poll, Gwyneth Paltrow was chosen by People magazine as the World's Most Beautiful Woman. Star readers actually hate Gwyneth Paltrow more than Chris Brown. So, basically, Star magazine readers are idiots. Along with Gwyneth, People chose nine other fab ladies for their 2013 Most Beautiful list. You can pick up the full issue on newsstands and in stores tomorrow.

Gwyneth Paltrow, 40
Gwyneth feels most beautiful when she's with family.
"Around the house, I'm in jeans and a t-shirt. I don't really wear makeup."

Kerry Washington, 36
While her character is usually unflappable, Kerry finds beauty in how her own life isn't so.
"I don't have to be perfect. All I have to do is show up and enjoy the messy, imperfect journey of my life."

Zooey Deschanel, 33
Zooey believes you define your own beauty.
"I can try to look like other people if I'm playing a role, but I like to serve my own sense of what I think is beautiful.
You have to be true to yourself."

Jane Fonda, 75
Access Hollywood asked Jane to reveal her beauty secrets.
"Good genes and a lot of money."
"If you feel good in your skin, it comes through your eyes and your face and your smile."

Jennifer Lawrence, 22
Jennifer talked to Elle about her near-nude role in X-Men: First Class.
"I knew that if I was going to be naked in front of the world,
I wanted to look like a woman and not a prepubescent 13-year-old boy.
I'm so sick of people thinking that's what we're supposed to look like."

Kelly Rowland, 32
Kelly didn't always believe in her own beauty.
"I went through a period where I didn't embrace just being a chocolate, lovely brown-skinned girl.
Embrace everything that you are as a woman, even your flaws."

Halle Berry, 46
Halle feels her short hair empowers her, but doesn't define her.
"It's just an accessory that I get to wear, like a handbag or shoes."

Drew Barrymore, 38
Drew believes your beauty is reflected by what you feel on the inside.
"Happiness is the best makeup any woman can wear.
It's all about the inside; that's where the poison or the sunshine lays."

Pink, 33
Pink was told she'd never be on magazine covers because she's not pretty enough.
"I'm totally comfortable with that.
I know my strong points. I work hard, I have talent, I'm funny and I'm a good person."

Amanda Seyfried, 27
Amanda is ok with not looking like everyone else.
"I want something different about me. I'd rather not be ordinary looking."

Did any of your favorites make the list?

Interesting! I love Kelly Rowland's no-makeup photo they're all beautiful, but who's to say is the "most beautiful" ? Thanks for sharing the photos!

Is this the top ten? If it is, what an odd list....they're all attractive but none of them are top ten to me.

And GP is SO not the most beautiful girl in the world, SO NOT!!!!!

She's pretty but not beautiful and I think there's a difference.

Love zoey!


Venus Trapped In Mars said...

OH MY GOD JANE FONDA. Good lord. I could have easily guessed charlize theron in that dress

Shelley said...

I love so many of them! Yay!

Kelly @ turned UP to ELEVEN! said...

Gwen is beautiful inside and out, screw the haters!!!

I even agree with Zooey on this list. While she drives me nuts, she's a lovely woman. I like that she marches to the beat of her own drummer, that is something I like and respect about her.

Annie said...

These are some gorgeous and fabulous ladies!

Myra said...

They are all beautiful! I love love me some Zooey!

CortlandMB said...

Love these quotes. So inspiring!

Mrs. Match said...

Such a strange list-and I really don't think Gwyneth is the most beautiful. She is pretty, and they definitely picked a great photo of her, but I never would have picked her as most beautiful.
I love Jenn Lawrence's quote, so true. We are not supposed to look like preteen boys! And I adore Zooey, and think she is by far one of the most beautiful women in the world.
The quotes are all wonderful-and Drew nailed it. Happiness is the best makeup you can possibly wear.

Christina said...

I love all these quotes! Especially J.Law's. Kerry Washington is my favorite right now. I'm glad she made the list. I'm eh on Gwyneth. She is very pretty and talented and I'm sure a lot of what she does and says gets misconstrued in the media, but I just don't love her.

MiMi said...

I'm with Christina on Gwyneth. Meh.
Jane Fonda is an idiot so everything she says seems to make her look ugly in my opinion...but I like that she admitted having lots of money helps in the beauty department!
