Gwyneth Paltrow is one hot mama!

The Oscar winner was named the World's Most Beautiful Woman of 2013 by People magazine. The latest title only adds to the list of awards and accolades already collected by the mom-of-two, which includes an Academy Award and an Emmy Award. Throw in the adorable kids, the rock star husband, a couple of bestselling cookbooks, and a hit lifestyle website and Gwyneth seems to be the perfect pick for the title. Then why are some folks hating on her as the World's Most Beautiful?

Her Casual Isn't Our Casual: Gwynnie prides herself on being casual and laid back around home. She says, "Around the house, I'm in jeans and a T-shirt. I don't really wear makeup. That's what [my family] is used to." The issue is that the jeans come from Chloe and cost $325 and the T-shirt is by a knitted sweater by Diane von Furstenberg that costs $245. Based on the star's recent "Annual Spring Edit," we would have to shell out over $30,000 to dress in her kind of casual. It's more like $450,000 if you want all the accessories too!

Her Ingredients Don't Fit Our Budget: If you thought her wardrobe was expensive, her diet would cripple our budgets. While her latest cookbook, "It's All Good," is full of awesome recipes and amazing photos, the cost of recreating them will leave your jaw hanging open. The restrictive diet basically eliminates all the good stuff including coffee, dairy, sugar, tomatoes, wheat, meat, and anything processed. In their place are a list of name brand ingredients that don't exactly fit a middle class budget. A close inspection of the recipes showed that it would cost $300-a-day to recreate in our own kitchens.

Botox Beauty: If the clothes and the diet weren't enough, the star has admitted to embracing botox and other cosmetic alternatives to help her stay beautiful. She recently told Harper's Bazaar, "I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I'm 50. I'll try anything. Except I won't do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!" For now, she relies on laser treatments and her own workout regime to stay looking youthful.

In the Smoke

: While she embraces her organic elimination diet, she still smokes! In the same interview she said her bad habit was, "My one light American Spirit that I smoke once a week on a Saturday night." Unfortunately, one cigarette a week doesn't make her all that approachable given the price tag that comes with the rest of her lifestyle!
