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 media is the one who exploits her and makes her comments sound like “whines.” She doesn’t deserve any haters who are actually influenced by the media’s overwhelming coverages of her life.

Jennifer deserves a praise. She’s such a classy and beautiful woman. She looks better than ever!

how horribly cruel people can be.i hope the best for jen. these people that say these things must be really insecure people themselves.and they always talk about her age ,well angelina will be forty some day soon.

I’m so tired of this woman. All she ever does is talk about her lonely life in interviews. She started this garbage years ago when she cried to VF about her divorce.
Why doesn’t she try talking about the actual movie? Or some interesting projects she’s working on and not her lame rom-coms. How about talking about situations in other countries?
It’s always her yoga, her hair, her love life and people suck it up as usual.

Can you say “photoshop”? Maybe Adobe should hire her for their spokesperson!

The question we were asked to comment on was whether we liked Jen’s Elle cover photo… so, sticking to the purpose of this posting… no, I don’t much like it. She should not be wearing black, as it totally drains colour from her. Or, if she is wearing black, she needs to have colour on her face. This picture does absolutely nothing for her, unfortunately, as she is a lovely looking woman.

Love her, and she is sooo classy. Anyone who is ripping on her probably is just very jealous, and those saying comments about her smile, her tan, pleeease like you look even remotely as good as her. Grow up! She gets to look great while Angilina is shoulder high in dirty diapers:)

I wish i knew Jen’s secret for keeping it together as well as she does in the public eye.I can’t imagine being in her shoes and having my personal life on display.I respect Jen way more than Angelina.The girl has class,and knows how to use it respectfully
