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?

Ummm…”Viviana”, you are the only one whining. In that little snippet of her interview she sounds strong and proud to be whomever she wants to be, single, or coupled. If you hate her so much, why did you click on the article about her?

If Brad Pitt have never married Jennifer Aniston we would have forgotten about her long ago. He MADE her. She is overrated and over-exposed.

Jen is beautiful inside and outside what I luv most is that she brings out the monster in jealous women who fail 2 carry themselves like classy womwn shoud,
Viviana & other haters get lives and stop hating I bet u r all miserable hahahaha

Enough with judging her as far as relationships are concerned,1st of all she is a nice,humble person and the paparazzi make it seem like every person she eats out with is her flavour of the month,haters be real and honest 2 yourselves cos u know that’s a smear campaign,secondly thumbs up for dumping whoever is not worthy of her”That’s what I call “BEING TRUE 2 HERSELF”
Jen shines especially when u try 2 beat her down bcos she is one of God’s favourites…..

Phhbbbbttttt! That’s not long hair. When it gets past your waist, then it’s STARTING to get long! LOL!

I like her so much since I watched “friends”.
Then I saw a movie–i forgot the name.
But I knew she was in “friends”.
Afterwards, the movie “he’s just not that into u” came out. Gosh. I was so enjoy it.
I like her style.
