She’s one of America’s most gorgeous women, and next month Jennifer Aniston will be getting the beauty recognition she deserves in the coveted cover-model spot on Elle magazine’s big September issue — and has a first look. In an exclusive interview inside, Jen dishes on her love life, friendships and life in Hollywood. “I’m not going to ignore the pink elephant in the living room,” she says of the media’s insistence that she’s lonely. “It’s fine. I can take it. If I’m the emblem for ‘this is what it looks like to be the lonely girl getting on with her life,’ so be it.” And she’s happy to help others who find themselves in a similar position. “I support women, men, anybody who is in a place that’s not their strongest and who is ready to push forward,” she says. But if you are more interested in the star’s style than her love life, click over to now for an interview with her longtime hairstylist, Chris McMillan, who dishes on the secrets behind star’s much-imitated tresses. “I’ve been doing Jennifer’s hair forever. When I first met her, she had long, one-length hair with bangs, and she was like, ‘Don’t cut my hair — I want my hair long,'” he reveals. “I cut a couple inches off and layered it from her bangs down to the ends…The next thing you know, her bangs were down to her chin, and the rest of her hair was at her shoulders in these long, loose layers that sort of flipped out — and that’s what we called the Rachel.” Click here to read more about Jennifer’s hair how-tos — and her must-have products and hair styling tips at Tell us: What do you think of Jennifer’s Elle cover?

Jen is beautiful, classy and very humble. Any guy would be lucky to have her. (I do have to say her smile is kinda strange…but she’s still gorgeous.) I wish I had her hair!

Not her best pic, still a beautiful woman.

I agree about the smile, it looks airbrushed or something. Beautiful!

I have nice lips, right, even if they are thin and dry? whine whine whine…

where is the whine??? I think the media puts her there and she has to deal with it. Truthfully she’s not the poster child for the “lonely” woman, she’s moved on, I think it’s the media that hasn’t.

Jennifer anniston sucks!

I say good for Jen. I don’t understand why people are pressuring her. She has been married already. You don’t have to marry everyone you date. I don’t understand that sort of mentality in Hollywood and elsewhere. People should get married once and then leave it alone. Date everyone else, this whole marry everyone you love mentality is what has the divorce rate so high in this country.

It doesn’t really look like her at all.
