Gwyneth Paltrow is having a big month: Iron Man 3 hits theaters this weekend; her second cookbook, It’s All Good, was just released; in spite of that optimistic title, Star’s readers recently voted her “most-hated,” ahead of lady-puncher Chris Brown; and then, a mere eight days later, People named her Most Beautiful. So, it’s official: Gwyneth does everything. This is a woman who wears the nickname GOOP with a measure of actual dignity, and sported a cape to the Oscars with regal panache.

Either way, let’s be honest: If it will give us her abs, we’re totally buying that cookbook.
