Gwyneth Paltrow says world`s most beautiful woman title `not true`

Melbourne: Gwyneth Paltrow has said that she`s thrilled to be picked by People magazine as World`s Most Beautiful Woman for 2013 but it`s "obviously not true."

Paltrow questioned her own selection as she walked the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of ` Iron Man 3`.

"It`s funny, these things, because it`s like obviously not true. But it`s very sweet to be named that," the Herald Sun quoted her as saying.

Paltrow said her two children weren`t aware of the news in this week`s edition of the magazine, but she`d been getting plenty of congratulatory emails from friends and family.
