Named World’s Most Beautiful Woman Wednesday, Gwyneth Paltrow is tall, thin, blonde and married to a rock star. Envy her? Sure. She’s like one of the Real Housewives, only with an Oscar and more polarizing views.

When she’s not acting in blockbuster movies, writing best-selling cookbooks and raising two adorable low-carb children, Paltrow is busy looking absolutely gorgeous on red carpets around the world.

But not everything Gwyneth says and does requires an automatic critique. In fact, she’s pretty on the mark when it comes to a few things (including her love of Oreos). Here are five reasons you secretly love her (and we do, too!):

1. She can really cook!
You made
her fish taco recipe and they turned out surprisingly awesome.

2. She hates working out – who doesn’t?
But! You bought all of Tracy Anderson’s workout DVDs and even downloaded her playlist.

3. She’s fashionable.
You’re still obsessed with her Tom Ford dress from the 2012 Oscars (that cape!).

4. She has the funds to be fashionable.
You couldn’t believe she recommended $150 sweatpants, but you’d totally buy them if you had her bank account.

5. She has fabulous friends.
Be honest, if you were besties with Jay-Z and Beyoncé you’d totally talk about it all the time too.
