People’s Most Beautifule Issue
Iron Man 3 star Gwyneth Paltrow landed the top spot on People Magazine’s Annual Most Beautiful Women In The World list. The 40-year-old told the magazine that she thought someone was playing a joke on her when she first received word of being featured on the cover of the 2013 issue.
She discussed the idea of beauty with the magazine saying, “I feel my most beautiful when I am truly myself. Meaning when I accept exactly where I am in time and space and I’m not judging myself in any way. And I feel that I have the peace that comes with loving yourself and all of your flaws.”
- Fellow member of the over 40 club, Portia de Rossi, also made the list. She offered her own take on the topic of beauty saying, “As women we’re so conditioned to think that beauty and age area very important that you stay kind of youthful in order to be beautiful. I don’t think it’s fair for people to think that women are just vain because they’re worried about getting older. It’s actually really linked in with a lot of very primitive stuff for women.”
- Other gorgeous girls who made the list include Kerry Washington, Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Lawrence, Jane Fonda, and Kelly Rowland.
- The issue will hit newsstands on Friday (April 26th.)

Jennifer Lopez might be making a return to American Idol much to the dismay of Mariah Carey. There are rumors that Fox execs are hoping that bringing J. Lo back to the show to replace Mariah would give the current season a much-needed boost in the ratings.
Although some news outlets were reporting that Mariah’s people threatened legal action which killed any chance of the judge-swap, TMZ claims the network has actually gone as far as approaching Lopez about it. While no deal has been made, Fox is scrambling for a solution since last week’s episodes had the worst ratings the show has seen since its debut in 2002.
- Deadline.com is reporting that this was something that Fox considered doing about a month ago but ultimately decided it would seem desperate and damage the Idol brand.
