I guess my 1990’s time machine worked, because apparently Julia Roberts is mad at Gwyneth Paltrow for “winning” People‘s Most Beautiful Woman title. I can’t even get into how untrue this story is, but let’s pretend it is. Let’s pretend it’s 1998 and this stuff matters, and Julia Roberts cares and we care about Julia Roberts. From National Enquirer:
A source says Julia, 45, exploded when “People” magazine named Gwyneth, 40, its “Most Beautiful Woman” – and the “Pretty Woman” is plotting to kick the “Iron Man” babe to the curb.
“Julia’s won the magazine’s ‘Most Beautiful Woman’ title four times,” a source told The ENQUIRER.
“The last time was in 2010, and even though it was highly unlikely she’d be chosen again so soon, Julia got the shock of her life when Gwyneth got the nod. She thought a twenty-something actress like Jennifer Lawrence, not someone in her age group, would get it.”
We all want to believe that Hollywood is just like Mean Girls, don’t we? Seriously though, how f-cking archaic and stupid is it that People still does this Most Beautiful Woman thing?
For what it’s worth, I had a hard time finding a photo of the two of these ladies together. And when I did, it was the same one that appeared everywhere.
Anyway, this is the real winner right here:
