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?

The smile she gives kinda makes her look sad and putting on a happy front but it is still a great picture and an awesome outfit she is wearing

manni on

Brittz on

I think it’s hilarious that you all talk about her like you know her!

VKG on

I think her looks are over-rated. She did get robbed for not getting an Oscar nod for her role in The Good Girl, however. Great work Jennifer.
I just don’t think she’s pretty at all.

I am an admirer of Jen. She has gone through heartbreak after heartbreak, and I can relate, which is probably why I like her so much. She’s a good girl, and from the interviews I’ve read, I gather she has a lot of insecurities that NEED to be resolved before she can step into a relationship. I have battled (and continue to do so) my insecurities b/c of the jerks I’ve dated. At long last, I’m seeing a super guy, but some of my insecurities creep up now and then. I recognize them and am working through it. I hope Jen works on herself first, and that she finds true love, as we all deserve to love hard and be loved in kind. Sorry for the blah, blah.

overrated on

Way overrated ! Boring, superficial actress with no real talent.Her movies depicts her in the same role- love torn and lonely.She messes with all the available guys in Hollywood who does not want anything to do with her after a few weeks.

I just realized, Jen is not that good-looking.

BarCadiz on

She has been photoshopped too much, she isn’t that pretty. Ridiculous, and she is such a bore.

WOW.. Jen is beautiful person… has accompished a lot in her life… she has been through a great
betrayal and come out on the other side.. those of you who think so badly of her.. let’s see what you look like and/or have accompished.

This certainly is not her best shot.. but who cares.. she is on the cover.. none of us are…

jennifer aniston is gorgeous, talented and one of the classiest women on this planet. I wish the media and all the haters would move on with their lives because she certainly has. yes she was married, yes she was cheated on something that is common in america but what isnt so common is having to deal with it in the spotlight and jen has done incredibly with it. and last time i checked jen has friends and a booming career, just cause she doesnt have a man doesnt mean she is lonely or that she cant get one. jen, you go girl, you’re a strong classy and inspirational woman, dont let anyone bring you down!
