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?

Just this morning a saw french issue of ELLE magazine, with Jen on the cover. She looks just
GGGGREAT! I dont like very much the picture on the
american issue of ELLE though. She liooks kind of
plastic and artificial. But who cares,she is just
Beautiful and a very loving person.

Even with all the tanning, all the makeup, all the airbrushing… this is the best she can do? Seriously, poor girl, well at least her own Mother was honest with her. She has pencil lips, nothing sexy there. She has a honker of a nose (even after surgery) nothing cute there. Oh my the never ending chin?? How on earth can you call her one of the most beautiful women. We have people out there like Jessica Alba, Salma Hayek, Angelina Jolie that on off days (no make up) they still force you to take a second look. Those women are blessed with natural God given beauty!! Wow give them a tube of mascara and they can own a run way! Poor Jennifer, no matter how hard she tries, she is still just pathetic looking. Going on about her personal life does not help her either. People are tired of hearing her poor me stories! She was not ready to be in a married relationship with Brad, or a relationship period. She thought she had better things going for her. Little did she know that a real woman can do it all, be sexy, get pregnant, be hot, get great movie roles, be a great mom, a goodwill ambassador, and KEEP A MAN! Now that she is forty and ready for the serious relationship, and maybe even a family, by her own most recent admissions. Well good for her, but she needs to date outside of Hollywood, this will be her only saving grace. I also would like to see her comfortable in HER OWN SKIN… I mean, no excessive tanning, no makeup, hair up, she has so much potential, but she really needs to learn to love herself first! Beauty comes from within, if she stops her complaining and nagging, and obsessively not wanting to be seen with out the mask, she will do much better in life. Good luck to you Jennifer.

She’s a role model for all of us plain girl next door types that got lucky. Besides, how many people can move from being a member of a preppy sitcom to one of the best mediocre actresses of all times!

As attractive as she is in her own way (not a great beauty) she can not take a cover shot, try taking a candid pic of her, they tend to look much better. Even if you look at her naked GQ pic she looks frozen and stiff, and whats with that hand in the GQ Shot, looks so un-natural.

Rose…you’re mean. mean but honest!

Hollywood is to blame for all of this. They even tell us who to consider gorgeous. If you look in the corner of this web page you will see a picture of Tori Spelling hawking her “beauty secrets” right above JA…something has got to give!!!what the heck…with women looking like this even “I” can be a beautiful movie star…we won’t even comment on their acting abilities or lack thereof.
