Now, Gwyneth Paltrow can add one more thing to that impressive list: World's Most Beautiful Woman.

The busybody actress leads People magazine's latest lineup of celebdom's most stunning stars, taking over cover-gal duties from BFF Beyoncé, who was honored by the mag last year.

But ever the humble star, Chris Martin's ladylove knows how to keep her high-glam image in perspective.

"He'll make a joke about it," Paltrow tells the magazine of her hubby. "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."

And when it comes to her home life with their two kids—Apple, 8, and Moses, 7—the Iron Man 3 star likes to keep things no-fuss.

"Around the house, I'm in jeans and a T-shirt. I don't really wear makeup," she says. "That's what they're used to."

As for her beauty regimen, Paltrow says that her fitness routine—she's a big devotee of workout guru and pal Tracy Anderson—plays a big part in helping her keep that youthful energy and glow.

"It makes me look younger and feel strong," the actress says of her workout routine. "When I first started, I thought, 'I'll never be good at this. This is a nightmare!' But now it's like brushing my teeth, I just do it."

As for People's other beauties, Gwynnie's in great company: Other stars who've made this year's list include Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Drew Barrymore, Kerry Washington, Jane Fonda, Amanda Seyfried, Zooey Deschanel, Kelly Rowland and Pink.
