Haters gonna hate, but that doesn't stop Gwyneth Paltrow from continually killing it at life: The 40-year-old mother of two was just announced as People's "World's Most Beautiful Woman."

The magazine hits stands today, and Gwyn appears alongside Adele, Jennifer Lawrence, and Drew Barrymore.

She joked that her husband will be surprised to see her all gussied up:

“He’ll 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.”

Oh, LOL. It's fun to be rich and famous.

Paltrow routinely takes shit for her lifestyle magazine, GOOP, which schools readers in how to live perfect lives using nothing but large paychecks and a plethora of outside help. The world's most beautiful woman most recently starred in the "Iron Man" trilogy, playing the role of Pepper Potts.
