Jennifer Aniston named Sexiest Woman of All Time
Jennifer Aniston is no longer plagued by depressing tabloid headlines -- the actress is happily in love, working constantly and has now been named the Sexiest Woman of All Time by Men's Health magazine.
The fitness magazine compiled a list of 100 of the sexiest women and Aniston beat out the other women in the top five -- Raquel Welch, Marilyn Monroe, Britney Spears and Madonna, for the top spot.
"Funny is sexy, and Jennifer Aniston is funny -- she was invited to join 'Saturday Night Live' before her big break with 'Friends,'" Men's Health explained of their choice. "Her down-to-earth persona makes her seem attainable, and anyone who's seen her in 'Office Space' has to admit she makes even pieces of flair look good. She rarely plays the airhead, and she seldom overplays a role: she's funny in a quiet, refreshingly human way."
"And her all-too-human love life off screen inspires sympathy that not even a string of bland romantic comedies can diminish," the magazine continued. "Other sex symbols drift toward one-dimensionality, becoming flat icons in the process, but throughout her career Aniston has remained sexy, funny, and unmistakably real."
But Aniston didn't agree that she was the sexiest, telling Men's Health, "It's a tie between Bridgette Bardot and Gloria Steinem. But if I had to choose one, I'd say Gloria because, well, she's the full package. That's sexy."
The "Horrible Bosses" star also opened up about what she was looking for in a man, telling the magazine, "Sexiest thing about a man -- other than abs -- is if he can make me laugh, has compassion, kindness, and an accurately sized ego."
Aniston is considered one of Hollywood's most beautiful actresses and earlier this year received the "Decade of Hotness" award at Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards. She has been dating boyfriend Justin Theroux, a 40-year-old actor, since at least this past May. She was famously married to Brad Pitt between 2000 and 2005. Aniston fueled engagement rumors several months ago when she was photographed wearing a sparkly ring.
Aniston recently denied rumors that she was pregnant and engaged, explaining that she has gained weight because she quit smoking.
Aniston got close to Theroux while filming their upcoming movie, "Wanderlust."
The R-rated comedy, which is slated for release on February 24, 2012, follows Aniston and Paul Rudd as they leave their city lives and land in a clothing-optional hippie commune.
In the film's trailer, Theroux is shown teaching Aniston to milk a goat, offering tips like "work the shaft" and "flick the tip." Meanwhile, Rudd's character is offered some free love from Malin Akerman.
Who do you think is the Sexiest Woman of All Time from the list's top five spots?
