The 40-year-old actress topped a magazine’s annual list, with actress Kerry Washington coming in second place and ‘Les Miserables’ star Amanda Seyfried coming third, reported a British tabloid.
Paltrow has stolen the title from her friend Beyonce who was voted the fittest of them all last year.
Speaking about the accolade the Hollywood star said that her Coldplay frontman husband Chris Martin and their two kids, Apple (8), and Moses (7), are surprised by the news as they see a very different side of her.
She said that when she is in house, she wears just jeans and a T-shirt and doesn’t really put-on any make-up.
“And Chris will 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,” she said.
