Talk about mixed messages...
Last week, Gwyneth Paltrow was voted as the Most Hated Celebrity by Star Magazine, beating out controversial stars like Chris Brown and John Mayer. But while her snobby comments and rigid parenting methods may not endear her to everyone, there's no denying that Gwyneth is smoking hot. This week, she was named as the most beautiful woman in the world by People.
The magazine raved about Gwyneth's "timeless look" and youthful appearance, which she attributes to working out five days per week.
However, the actress and wife to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin said that her red carpet outings are pretty much the only time she ever gets glammed up. When she's around her two children, Apple and Moses, she's more likely to be found dressing down in order to keep up with them.
"Around the house, I'm in jeans and a T-shirt. I don't really wear makeup. That's what they're used to,” she said. "[My husband will] make a joke 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."
Although her movies continue to perform well at the box office, numerous comments Gwyneth has made to the press in recent years have left her branded as pretentious and, well, hated. She has referred to British people as "more intelligent and civilized than the Americans," said she finds it "incredibly embarrassing when people are drunk" and declared that she would "rather die than let my kid eat Cup-a-Soup." Last September, she told InStyle Magazine that she found TV in English to be harmful to her two children. "I only let them watch TV in French or Spanish," she said. "When I'm in France, I go to [Boulevard] Beaumarchais and buy all their cartoons."
