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?

Love Jen more each time I see her.

oh please. all she does is go out with her next movie co-star for like a month, then she’s by herself again. she’s so not a singles role-model. she’s just trying to f$$$ every guy in hollywood before she’s 50.

‘One of America’s Most Gorgeous women’ … give us a break! The reason People magazine features her so much is … SHE’S A NEWS WORTHY MESS! Gorgeous … let’s re-set your priorities!
I stopped reading your rag when she became your poster girl (or tried to make her your poster girl). Ms A is a needy insecure and totally out of touch with reality and I’m not following her leads except for WHAT NOT TO DO with a life.

Jennifer is a lovely person and very classy. I truly wish her the best of luck and maybe she will find a man that will understand her and click with her. Jen your soul mate is out there. You will find him someday. You are a great actress and I look forward when you make a movie that doesn’t pertain to comedy. Perhaps a movie about a tough lady fighting for her life for those that want to hurt you or perhaps saving the world or something. :}
Enjoy your life and stay happy.

Jen contributes to a lot of charities, the diff between her and AJ is she does not need to photographed, interviewed, or pimped out when doing it. Jen is an inspiration to me, when you get knocked down, hang with your best gf’s, cry, pick yourself up and move on.

Why the name calling. Tell you what, when you help worn torn countries, speak to the U.N. and donate millions to those in need, then you can throw stones!!!!

LOVE Jennifer Anniston! For all these people perpetuating the myth that she is always whining about her life-grow up! The media wants to keep putting her in this role so they keep asking her about that stuff…she is just responding to the constant questions and comments that she gets. She is the epitome of class and I think she’s fantastic! I’d love to see pictures of some of the people on here criticizing her appearance-let’s pick you apart & see how you stack up!
