NEW YORK (AP) — People magazine has named Gwyneth Paltrow as the World’s Most Beautiful Woman for 2013.

The 40-year-old actress tops the magazine’s annual list of the “World’s Most Beautiful,” announced Wednesday.

Paltrow is the daughter of two Hollywood veterans, filmmaker Bruce Paltrow and actor Blythe Danner. On her father’s side she is the descendant of an Eastern-European rabbinical line and is related to former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

Commenting on her selection, Paltrow says: “Around the house, I’m in jeans and a T-shirt. I don’t really wear makeup.”

She credits her workout routine for keeping her looking young and feeling strong.

Paltrow is married to Coldplay rocker Chris Martin. They have two children, Apple, 8, and Moses, 7.
