(Newser) People has selected the celebrity everyone loves to hate as this year's "World's Most Beautiful Woman!": Gwyneth Paltrow. As is standard for Most Beautiful winners, Paltrow adopts a self-deprecating tone: "Around the house, I'm in jeans and a T-shirt. I don't really wear makeup," she says, and hubby Chris Martin even teases her 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."

In a behind-the-scenes video, she adds that she "honestly thought someone was playing a joke" on her and "had to re-read the email three times" before she believed she'd be on the cover.
