Gwyneth Paltrow may be People magazine's most beautiful woman in the world, but the actress herself could think of a few other suggestions.
When the topic of her latest honor came up on the red carpet at Wednesday's premiere of her new movie, "Iron Man 3," Paltrow replied that "it's not true, first of all."
But of course, she also finds being the recipient of such a title "very sweet and flattering and humbling and embarrassing and all that stuff."
And while she personally feels the most beautiful when she's at home with her family, lounging in jeans without any makeup on, wearing the Iron Man armor in the latest installment isn't half-bad, either.
The actress, who portrays Tony Stark's love interest, Pepper Potts, gets to step into it for the first time in the third film. She was pleased - and so was her 7-year-old son, Moses.
"I have to say it was really great," Paltrow told CNN. "It was completely novel and out of my wheelhouse, I would have thought. But when I got in the suit, 'I thought yeah, I should have been rocking this suit all along.' It was pretty much [Moses’] dream come true, trumped only by the fact that Pepper now has a Lego figure. So I’m in his good book right now.”
As for whether this will be her last go-round playing Pepper Potts to Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark/Iron Man, Paltrow's pretty sure "Iron Man 3" is the franchise's curtain call.
“I think so," she told CNN. "They’ve sort of said this is the end for Iron Man. So yeah, I think it probably is.”
Yet her co-star Don Cheadle is more uncertain.
“Who knows? I have no idea," Cheadle said. "Until this movie comes out and performs or doesn’t perform, I think it’s going to be a lot of seeing how people react and also what’s left to do. Is there anything left to mine in the relationships between these characters? Is there some place to go that isn’t going to get covered in one of these other Marvel movies? If so, then he could return.”
What do you think - should "Iron Man" suit up for a fourth time? "Iron Man 3," directed by Shane Black, will arrive in theaters May 3.
She definitely shouldnt have won this.
Already saw the movie at a premiere here in Uruguay last week and think it's probably the last.
The most beautiful woman in the world??? Uh, hardly... I used to like her before I saw her doing an interview where she behaved like a total know-it-all snob who is above the little people who made her famous to begin with. Sickening, especially given the fact that most of her fame came from nothing more than her being with Brad Pitt.
rip you were a talent not one of us will never forget
Take that Mr. Gun
she is very beautiful, inside and out, shes classy and sophisticated i love the way she dressed up +639052166886
Serioulsy beautiful? nope she is cute ,I don't know who chosses this women ,last year was Beyonce..really? we have real beauties here but this people are totaly blind in terms of beauty ....not she is not the most beautiful woman it doesn't define beauty at all! (not jelousy here) I admire beautiful women !
she's just not our kind....
she is not talented.
I have to disagree with you ,she is not beautiful ,but she has brains ,graduate form College,speck different languages ,she speaks Spanish frrm Spain the real castillian with the Andalucia accent never I hear a American speaking so fluent that language,she is smart..... beautiful? I don't think so!
going for it.
gp just doesn't have it...sorry she has good figure but she is not talented and is basically what we call not personable and rude
its a shame she's in this direction
she is pathetic that's why she's not popular
gp is a not tdalente
these people are a disgrace to our society and we don't need anymore hoe's then we have already...
and, speaking on behalf of all the male bloggers here - there are NOT enough hoes in the world. The more the merrier. For us at least.
Wall Street Baby Wins....
She is beautiful and classy; so much so that if you check under her skirt you will find no sand in her c o o t c h.
I gotchyer HARD DRIVE *right here* (gropes nads)
never mess with a wall street baby--your stupid–and i'm hungry
YOUR 3 NO TALENT HOE'S AND I AM A WALL STREET BABY
She is pretty and has nice looking mommy-parts
STILL HACKED IN.
Wow… My friend Emily has just married to a handsome wealthy men
They met through ~~ŚeekingRίch.Ćoм~~ a good place to talk with successful wealthy guys and beautiful classy women (athletes,doctors,CEOs,models,lawyers,celebrities,etc….)perhaps you can have a try
Paltrow is not attractive least of all talented.....
When I think of most beautiful I usually don't think of GP. Actually when I think of just beautiful GP doesn't come to mind either. I can probably think of at least 10 actresses that are more beautiful than her even right off the top of my head.
That is why paltrow and poke fun and the universe....now ties will be cut for her behavior....nobody is doing anything about it so therefore we have too......
she is of no use to the public
I know how she feels.For some reason,People magazine has selected me as most handsome man in the world.
those women have personality and they are not disgusting people...
No wonder why she can poke fun at everyone with her big sweater and stretch pants and filthy flats
Give it a rest. Beauty is subjective. I am guessing there aren't that many women who given a choice would refuse to look like her.
Now if I have to choose bwteen Angelina, Megan Fox, Gwen P, Keira Keightly and so on, the choice becoems more difficult because it is so sujective.
GP is a good person, amy be a bit uptight, but she is not trashy, she is responsible, goiod with and mother. What else do you people want?
Last year Beyonce was the winner. How is she any better? Before that was Jennifer Lopez with her 3 divorces.
Perhaps we should stop looking for the most beautiful and instead look for the best role model.
that's why she can mock leopard shoes-
All starletts are beautiful, Then you take off thier make-up, Then my wife has a shot at being the most beautiful in the world. Beauty is only skin deep, Look at linsey Lohan, Paris Hilton, Past the beauty, they are ugly down deep!!!
No wonder why she know what everyone has on at 7am and able to mock them
This "Most Beautiful" stuff is goofy anyway. She's totally right about the "first of all, I'm not" she's just the first to have the class say it. Because none of these women are truly the "most beautiful." Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder and these choices that are made are in the eye of a bunch nobodies who are simply out to sell more magazines. This ranks right up there with "the most eligible bachelor" and the "most" anything. Quite simply......they aren't.
wire cut off date...thanks
By God, she is not pretty. Even less, prettiest woman ..anything.
This is unbelievable.
As a man who's not at all into blonds, I have always thought GP was very beautiful. But that modesty makes her so HOT!! :)
Her beauty is in her DNA, as is her class, and style.
She is manners, refinement, such class as to NEVER do a sleazy reality show, money and fame came with her goals in life, she was not driven by them.
Her parents gave her morals, that many American families have long forgotten.
She is unique in that way to all the wanna be actors, who do porn videos, and think its no big deal, well it does.
She is not only beautiful outside, she truly is a beautiful woman inside (her soul), and people who know real, and lasting beauty won't forget she was not like all the others, she kept her self respect.
If I were her mom I would very very, very proud of her.
Don't worry, Salma Hayek, you are still the most beautiful creature to walk this planet in my eyes.
except for that spillte of a language that flows from those full lips – good times
Stephen we understand
Paltrow finally got something right – there are countless women more beautiful ,inside and out
... .... . / .... .- ... / -. .. -.- . . / -... - - -... ...
Maria Sharapova. Enough said.
I think her own mother (Blythe Danner) is even prettier than her! Always has been.
Catherine Zeta Jones always comes to mind as the most beautiful...and then I think of Michael Douglas and I want to vomit.
She is pretty but far from the most beautiful, who ever voted for that needs their glasses checked. Women from Victoria Secrets, Sports Illustrated swimsuit models etc etc are way more attractive..
Of course it's not true. I don't know who is but it sure ain't her.
Money will do the talking and decide. If they make lots of money they'll do another.
MOst beautiful?? Oh, Please. Plain Jane....wouldnt be famous if it werent for her parents no talent and dull.
2 words: KATE UPTON
( o )( o )
I'll trade her for Kate Upton...
I would trade just about anyone for Kate Upton.....
You know, back in Montana we take almost as much pride ina pretty woman as we do a good horse.......
The judging panel consisted of Stevie Wonder and Andrea Bocelli.
She's pretty, no doubt about it. But there is not such the most beautiful woman in the world, or the most intelligent person in the world, it always someone is better out there. It's a very ignorant statement, I feel embarrass for Paltrow.
Are you kidding me???? Most beautiful. Have you really seen her without make up>>>> UGH This world is going crazy. And if this was a way for people to go see Iron man 3?????? I have personally boycotted Hollywood. I do not see movies, pay for movies or even watch on tv. When these people tell me how to live...who to give my money to....No thanks...... No one dime. And you know what my family and I are happy. We go to zoos, parks, and spend time together more. It's great!
who's been boycotting Hollywood and virtually bankrupting the entertainment industry? You have amazing powers, lady? I would hate to be on YOUR bad side - you might boycott ME!
No you don't. This all said by the person posting on a celebrity blog...
That's probably because this celebrity blog article showed up on CNN's main page like a major news article. Guess they're desperate for material today.
What I think is that there is no way she's the most beautiful woman in the world. Pretty, yes. But not the most beautiful. As for Iron Man, sure why not. All the other movies do it, and this one is fun.
On who's standards?
I never did see Boy George, in his prime, on the cover as Most Beautiful Woman.
Shes a skinny washed out blond there a dime a dozen
There has to be a new one every year because the prior ones get ugly.
this woman isn't even CLOSE to most beautiful
AVERAGE at best
Not true...my wife is the most beautiful...to me anyway.
Awe!!!!! How absoutely sweet :)
I concur...she does like to dance in Saturday nights
Of course it's true – she's beautiful – all this other crap is just jealousy from the other ladies who are furious that when a girl looking like this walks down the street- all men look at her – while they get passed by or only some attention. Sorry girls deal with it.
ain't happening over 3 jealous hoe's
Honest and true...she's no an evil woman like they are
BEAUTIFUL GIRL WITH MORALS, HONEST AND DOES NOT HACK INTO HOMES AND COMPUTERS...
I don't know about most beautiful, but the scene in Iron Man II where she's in the party dress was a jaw dropper.
NOW THAT'S A TOUGH CALL
U? OH YEA WIRE PARTY NIGHT
Even if she were, facially, the fact that she got a boob job should take her off the list.
Natural is beautiful. Silicon is not.
She's not even that atractive and in the world? Did people magazine look at every single woman in the world? Or just hollywood celebraties? Hollywood is not a very big place and Palthrow is not even close to being the most atractive in such a small bunch of hollywood actresses.
Look at her faking humility. We all know she's a smug beeyotch.
Hey 99%... Know your place, stop being bitter and Shut the FCUK UP!
You're poor. You'll always be poor. Face it now and maybe you'll be a tad less bitter for the rest of your useless life.
Beauty comes from within. Paltrow is nothing more than a spoiled SNOB! She is far from beautiful with her nasty comments commparing herself to "regular" people. She can't "pretend to be someone living on $25,00 a year".
Man she looks like that alien that comes out of the ufo in close encounters of the third kind.
My woman is the most beautiful person in the world!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...........who judges these stupid choices?
Didn't she make some anti-American comments recently and lives in England?
I think Halle Berry holds the all time record!
Not even close...
Very pretty lady but definitely not my first choice either.
Was Stevie Wonder the judge?
Da girl is fine. At 40, she is smokin.
How about a spoiler alert if your article is going to reveal details about Iron Man 3? I have no excuse for reading a fluff piece about GP, but I certainly didn't expect to learn something that will undoubtedly prove a dramatic development in the upcoming film.
I usually don't read the article before I dart to the comment section to troll. This time it paid off because I certainly didn't want my enjoyment of IM3 ruined by a spoiler here.
This is the 4th time for Iron Man. Avengers was the third time. Avengers 2 will be the firth time.
As with all of these "rankings'...she is only selected out of the many who appear throughout the year on magazine covers. There are far more beautiful women in the world but they don't get international exposure which is what drives these decisions. Very sad that there are such rankings. What does that do to any young girl who may already feel inadequate or less than "Paltrow beautiful"?
Paltrow is a beautiful woman, but not the most beautiful in the world. I dont know if there is a most beautiful as many woman are absolutley gorgeous, but for different reasons or features. I am fairly certain that if she does exist, she's not in Hollywood
I saw the most beautiful woman once, but she wasn't in Hollywood and isn't a celebrity. She was at a Starbucks in Des Moines.
Anyone else see how bogus this is – Iron Man 3 is about to come out and suddenly she gets this – talk about a farce. People magazine was always a farce, but now its a laughing stock
Jessica Rabbit gets my vote.
Dat redhead be HOT – plus she's getting plugged by a rabbit so you know that canal gon' be TIGHT
"The actress, who portrays Tony Stark's love interest, Pepper Potts, gets to step into it for the first time in the third film."
Dammit, if you're going to have spoilers, at least warn people.
Plaltrow is kinda hot: butt & legs. But there are some extremely hot mamas that makes guys drool: Krysten Ritter,
Christina Hendricks, and Katy Perry.
in that Shakespeare movie from the '90s.
I think there should be another installment. It should be when Tony Stark and Pepper Potts' child(ren) take over Stark Ind. and the Iron (Wo)Man name.
What is beautiful about that stick figure.
No one could ever enlighten you on what beauty is. Your pond is not deep enough.
I just peed in it so it might be deep enough now
"Flesh and Bone" was the first film I saw Gwyneth Paltrow in, back when she was turning 21 yrs. old. I was in a group interviewing her for the film. It was her 21st birthday/Four Seasons Hotel, Beverly Hills, California. She was gracious, open and knew what she was expected to do to promote the film. Gwyneth laughed frequently, smiled easily, and spoke intelligently about the film and her family. It appears that she has become a complete person, not only an actress. I am proud to have met her early on and to see that she is that same wonderfully caring person she was way back when.
I remember it perfectly. I too was there. The best I can remember she brought us all corned beef and pastrami sandwiches. Her kindness was astounding.
No, Oscar, you are not entirely correct. I too was there and I had a turkey on marble rye. She even cut the crusts off for me, since my mom wasn't there. She is such a kind, generous lady.
Remember when she told the joke about midgets? I laughed so hard that soda spurted out of my nose. She is funny, kind, and talented.
I still burst out laughing when I think of that joke.
Q. What is the difference between a clever midget and a venereal disease?
A. One is a cunning runt, and the other is a ...
thank you for pointing out the real definition of beauty. Some here think it only is about looks. The point is that she is beautiful inside and out and she does it naturally. Any woman can LOOK beautiful with the right makeup, photographer and photoshop. This is the real deal.
This is a common description from people that actually met her. All the other negative responses appear to be rooted from ignorance and jealousy. Thanks for this.
I was just about to post the same exact thing. Dude needs some serious psychological help. Most pathetic person on these blogs, and that says A LOT!
More pathetic than me? Come, on, man...I try so hard!
Seriously, this stopped being even remotely amusing two years ago. You are an obsessive, extremist. Get yourself some professional help before we read about a manhunt for you on the news.
I AM a professional with a Masters in Clinical Psychology.
Sure. Sure you are... LOL!
Add delusional to the list! LOL!
Beyonce was last years, Lopez the year before. White?
There was a white crowd at the wedding I went to last weekend, but the caterers were all hispanic.
Oh it's a black thing. That's mature. Remember when Haly Barry (sp?) was most beautiful like 6 yrs in a row? Besides, as pretty as all the girls are that are rated here, any list that doesn't have Jennifer Love Hewett (sp?) listed as #1 is null and void.
sound like a bitter colored little man
Stay on BET..
and what is wrong with white?
I guess in your mind, they should never be able to name a white woman to any kind of accolade. They have had african americans, latinas, in previous years...pay attention you racist!
Yes, but a witty twit.
You just insulted twits.
I am positive you know all about fugly. Just not about the English language, taste, manners, society, self respect, evolution....
...and I would enjoy laying a 'Cleveland Steemer' on her chest!!
Did you know that posting material like that in a public forum can be classified as a form of molestation? If a child were to come in here and read that and it was subsequently reported... Hope for your sake you're not on a public, work or school computer because you could be branded a s e x o f f e n d e r for that. Good Luck with that!
Did you know that posting bullsh!t like that in a public forum can be classified as a form of mental retardation? If a child were to come in here and read that, you would be just as much of a laughstock as you are by the adults on this forum... Hope for your sake that you have a trust fund or some kind of financial assistance because you're obviously too much of a moron to be employable. Good Luck with that!
p.s., we know it's you, Pliny, making these purtanical comments, you old prude
good times....im not apologizing
