Jennifer Aniston is World's Most Beautiful Woman


Jennifer Aniston has been named the most beautiful woman in the world.

The Friends star beat a host of stunning celebs to be crowned the World's Most Beautiful Woman for 2016 by America's People magazine.

The 47-year-old - who graces the cover of the mag's 27th annual Most Beautiful double issue - admitted she was thrilled with the accolade.

"I thought, 'Oh my God'," she said. "There was this sort of very excited, teenage-y kind of moment."

Jen said she had learned to embrace her appearance over the years.

She said she became motivated to take care of herself early in her career, when her agent told her she didn't get a part because she was too chubby.

"It's funny, it's a really quick transition from, not a care, and now all of a sudden, we've got to really be mindful of what we put inside our bodies," she said.

"And how we sleep and take care of ourselves. You can get away with a lot in your 20s."

Asked what she had learned to accept over the years about her appearance, Jennifer laughed: "Well, I've never loved my butt. It's sort of a thing. I used to have a bubble butt and was teased. Now people are paying money to get things injected."
