Praised for being 'sexy, funny and unmistakably real', the 'Horrible Bosses' beauty tops the Men's Health poll and also bests the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Britney Spears and Madonna.
Men's Health has just released their list of 100 hottest women of all time, and Jennifer Aniston comes out on top. The "Wanderlust" actress beats her ex-husband's current partner, Angelina Jolie, who lands on No. 10, and ranks above the likes of Raquel Welch and Marilyn Monroe, who place second and third respectively.
"Funny is sexy, and Jennifer Aniston is funny," the magazine explains why its readers voted for the 42-year-old. "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. 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."
When asked to pick her own sexiest woman of all time, Aniston tells the magazine, "It's a tie between Bridgette Bardot and Gloria Steinem." She goes on to say, "But if I had to choose one, I'd say Gloria because, well, she's the full package. That's sexy."
Also making it into the Top 10 are Britney Spears, Madonna, Pamela Anderson and Jane Fonda among others. Spears ranks four on the list ahead of Madonna who rounds out the Top 5. Meanwhile, former "Baywatch" bombshell Anderson comes at No. 8, beating "Barbarella" star Fonda.
