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?

Jennifer is a beautiful person inside and out and doesn’t let outside negativities affect who she is as a person. Love her! I hope I look like that when I’m 40!

She’s all class and cool like that. Luv Jen!

her mouth looks funny

give me a break, she is so air brushed in this picture, its like she is 20 something again. I don’t get it, why can’t they just look like themselves!!! She had her chance with Brad and blew it because her career was more important. Now she is alone and who is to blame? But hey, she has her hair and all her money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She is not a beautiful woman. She is not a pretty woman. She is an average looking woman at best.

She is pretty,smart,funny and she is alone. What´s the problem? Every woman in earth has to appear with a man and children? I simply don’t understand all this media pression about Jennifer. Surely, AJ could teach everybody how date a married man, get pregnant (some women did it for centuries), and even so, be loved by the mass media.

But, I don’t knew a lot of women that act the same way Jennifer did. I think she represents properly a real and modern woman.

My first thought when I saw this cover was “Damn, she looks good! and she’s sticking it to Angelina!” I know this comment is supposed to be about the picture, but I CANNOT stand Angelina Jolie…
I think Jen is a beautiful person and the epitome of grace under fire.

Jennifer does not portray herself any other way than what she is…which is classy, honest,true friend, lovable, funny, and is about the most down to earth famous person there is. The right guy will eventually come along and he will be one lucky person to have a loyal and loving woman.

Jen is beautiful,classy and amazing. Remember, the person who laughs last,laughs the loudest!!!

Jennifer Aniston is the most over-rated actress in Hollywood. She is the exact same character in every part that she plays. Courtney Cox is the one who really shined on “Friends”, but the media was so blinded by Jennifer’s relationship with Brad Pitt, that she got all of the attention. She has zero depth to her talent. Let’s move on already!!
