Gwen Stefani is pretty awesome. She's beautiful, talented, has one of the best wardrobes in Hollywood and she manages to do it all while maintaining a relatively normal life outside of the business. In honor of her 44th birthday on Oct. 3, we're rounding up the top 10 reasons we totally love the No Doubt front-woman.
10. She looks amazing -- but she's honest about how much work is takes
It's not easy looking this good. Just ask Gwen -- or don't! "I hate talking about my body [all the time]," she once told Harper's Bazaar of how she stays in such great shape. "There is no secret: You just have to eat healthy, work out, and torture yourself." We don't know about you, but after listening to Gwyneth Paltrow constantly enthuse about her gluten-free, carb-free, sugar-free, fun-free diet, it's refreshing to hear someone fess up to how tough healthy living can be.
