Gwyneth Paltrow was once dubbed the Most Beautiful Woman Alive by People, but her striking good looks are coming under attack right now.
She can thank her new Max Factor campaign for that.
After Paltrow released this image of herself paying tribute to Audrey Hepburn, legions of the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star’s fans took to Twitter to slam her.
“She’s not pretty enough to be Audrey!” @Jaspiehorn wrote. “Worst casting ever!” @mariamzadeh added. “Gwyneth could never play Audrey.
“She’s not even half the woman Audrey Hepburn was,” said @DestineeDouty.
Meanwhile, @lainieamber called it “the funniest thing I have heard all day!”
Paltrow also paid homage to Madonna, Farrah Fawcett and Brigitte Bardot in the campaign, but it was the Hepburn comparison that ignited a firestorm.
Life isn't all bad for the much-maligned working mom Gwyneth, however.
Paltrow appears to be consciously recoupling with Chris Martin, as they've been spotted together several times after announcing a split earlier this year.
Sorry, Alexa Chung. Maybe next conscious uncoupling.
I've learned more about myself being married than anything else. I hate to say, "We've got it worked out," because you never know what's going to happen, but we laugh, we're good friends, we like to do the same stuff.

It's hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We're the same as any couple.
I definitely have to coax things out of him when we talk. You know, he's British, so it's a different lexicon totally. But you have to communicate. Otherwise there's no relationship.

We've gone through some terrible times where it's been really, really hard, but I've sort of come through those times with a much deeper understanding of myself. And we're still married. We worked through it. I think it's easier to get divorced. But I think the more you keep at it, the more you end up seeing the value in it. But man, sometimes it is not easy.

Sometimes it's hard being with someone for a long time. We go through periods that aren't all rosy. I always say, life is long and you never know what's going to happen.

I'm a very grounded, homey person and Chris is a very mad scientist, genius songwriter. So I never say, "Where are you? You should be home by now." I never place demands on him.
