Gwyneth Paltrow: From 'Most Hated' To 'Most Beautiful'

Gwyneth Paltrow

We want to hear from you: Which crown better suits the gluten-free queen?

Well … that was fast, Gwyneth.

Just about a week ago, Star Magazine dubbed Brad Pitt's ex-fiancé the 'Most Hated Celebrity' (yes, even above Chris Brown if you can believe it).

Now, in a twist of nominations, Gwyneth Paltrow—married to Coldplay's Chris Martin since 2003—was just bestowed the honor of 'Most Beautiful' by PEOPLE magazine. So maybe there's something to that strict low-carb, gluten-free diet after all. Still, we're fairly confident good genes played a strong role in scoring Gwen the win. Her look-alike mother is actress Blythe Danner (Meet the Parents), and her father is the late director and producer Bruce Paltrow, who passed away from complications of battling oral cancer in 2002.

Perhaps we shouldn't be surprised by People's turnaround praise for the 40-year-old statuesque blonde. When we wrote on Facebook about her former, less flattering title, here's what one YourTango reader voiced back, "I love her...can't help it."

And—snobby rumors, be damned—another comment read, "I just have to ask, why what she voted for that? She seems like she's a really nice person..."

Are you in agreement: Is the Goop founder and mother of two more worthy of her Most Beautiful or Most Hated accolade? Add your vote to our Facebook discussion.
