Glee’s Mr. Schue (Matthew Morrison) is more than happy with Emma (Jayma Mays), but his one-time love Holly Holliday is doing quite for herself, as well. Actress Gwyneth Paltrow — who played sexy substitute teacher Holly in multiple episodes of the show — has been crowned the World’s Most Beautiful Woman by People Magazine.

News broke on April 24 that Gwyneth, 40, had scored the coveted title, and the decision was met with almost immediate backlash online. Only a week ago, Star Magazine named Gwyneth #1 on their list of Hollywood’s 20 Most Hated Celebrities.

Don’t hate her ‘cause she’s beautiful! Oh wait... apparently, a ton of people already do.

There’s no doubt that Gwyneth is gorgeous. Still, Jezebel quickly pointed out that People’s Most Beautiful and Sexist Man Alive covers often have a movie or a product to promote. In this instance, Gwyneth’s new movie, Iron Man 3, is about to hit theaters. Not to say this is the only reason Gwyneth snagged the title, but it probably helped.

Included in People’s list of other “fresh faces” are Hollywood beauties Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, Amanda Seyfried, Kerry Washington, Zooey Deschanel and Kelly Rowland. Do you agree with the mag’s choice to give Gwyneth the top spot — or would you rather have seen one of the others take her place?
