Long hailed as the Sexiest Woman Alive, Angelina Jolie can add yet another honor to her name: Beauty Icon of the Decade. In a poll commissioned by British brand Superdrug, in which 3,000 people were questioned, Brad Pitt‘s leading lady was named number one on their list of the top 20 beauty icons of the decade. “Angelina Jolie is not a conventional beauty but her strong character shines through her fabulous features to give her a unique standing in the beauty world,” Steve Jebson, Commercial Director for Superdrug, tells the UK’s Telegraph. Also making the top five are Jennifer Aniston, Kylie Minogue, Catherine Zeta-Jones and British star Cheryl Cole. Check out all the stars who made the list here and then tell us: Do you agree that Angelina Jolie is the beauty icon of the decade? Who else would you have put on this list?Andrea DeSimone

No actually I don’t agree… There i something hardened about her that puts me off. She doesn’t seem like a natural beauty. I think Zooey Dechanel is gorgeous, so is Audrey Tautou. And of course women like Jennifer Aniston… She will always look young, I bet when she’s 70 she’ll still be rocking those jeans and that smile and pull it off!

Mona on

I think shes beautiful in a strange and wild way….shes definitely hot!!!!much much better than megan fox….

Belle on

She so beautiful.

Love on

Why Jennifer Aniston even in this list?
She’s not beautiful at all.

Angelina Jolie is a beauty of the 21st century.

oath on

I do agree Angelina Jolie is the beauty icon of the decade, but there are other women that list I don’t agree.

amanda on

WHAT ?? I DO NOT AGREE !! i don’t think that she’s beautiful….


Clint Eastwood: Angelina Jolie is one of the rare American actresses today who would have made a career in the 1940’s. Her face like her personality is very distinct, always attractive. It does not resemble anybody else. I also believe that is underestimated; as an actress she is a superb girl. Angelina Jolie registers more is the tradition of Simone Signoret, in which the obvious glamour never erases the very strong personality. Angelina Jolie is a great actress with a face that would have made her a star in any generation.

If anyone is disagree because who you are a hater .Our kids will go under the knife to look like Angelina jolie.

Confuzzled on

Yes, she’s beautiful in a unique way. But if you are going to name someone Beauty Icon of the Decade, they need to be beautiful inside and out. Someone who married someone else’s fiance (Laura Dern+Billy Bob Thornton) and husband (Jennifer Anniston+Brad Pitt) isn’t all that pretty to me.

Charlize Theron and Halle Berry outclass her any day.

Angie is the epitome of beauty whether she’s wearing a headscarf in the refugee camp or gown on the red carpet.

{oh!!} on

I’m jealous of her beauty.

{oh!!} on

I do agree she’s totally BEAUTIFUL.

Sup on

Angelina is such a stunner.

jane on

Angelina Jolie is the “Beauty Icon of the Decade”. There is something about her that you can’t take your eyes off. A very beautiful woman & also a wonderful humanitarian. With these two combination aplenty, Angelina Jolie is the deserved one.

Alex28 on

Angelina Jolie i think is the most beautiful lady i have ever seen .Her and Brad Pitt together are magic.

(LOVE- J ) on

I was surprised people magazine didn’t put Angie on the list best dress list 09. I don’t think she cares for fashion; after she wore a dress on the red carpet some of other stars copy her style.

Liz on

… is this a joke??

Chase on


She is as angelic as she is fierce; soft as she is brave, apparently more beautiful in person; even the camera fails to capture her true beauty.

Lovely inside and out; sooo talented, soo humble, so gracious, so scary smart, so generous and so loving to her partner and children as well as the needy of the world.

Iconic in her stature, unorthodox and amazingly secure and empowered. A true role model for young girls. Just a class act.

WTF is Aniston doing on the list; she is none of the above!! The likely put her there because she is glued to Angelina like the coat tailer she has been for over five years.

Her husband left HER. He didn’t leave her FOR Angelina; that marriage was over in year two. Aniston just feeds on the pity and won’t tell the real truth. Brad did; “He had reached a ‘dead end’…………..don’t be so easily fooled people. Use your heads.

ert on

Could not agree more, you know you want money?

Caribbean on

Totally agree. Also I get the feeling that see does not focus on that (her looks).
Great lady!!!!

Lin Reed on

Absolutely. She is wonderful and beautiful. No one like her…marches to her own drummer. What about Kate Hudson….much more beautiful than Jennifer Aniston for the top 5?

Starbaby on

The first choice is perfect, what I don’t understand is how can Jennifer Aniston have been chosen in the top ten? She has a Jay Leno chin. Why doesn’t she ever wear her hair up, is there something wrong with the shape of her face too? Is the public ever going to stop pitying her, she’s not the only one who ever lost her mate to smeone else. Julia Roberts, Trisha Yearwood, Marla Maples, Amy Grant (and she was a Christian music singer, how must more of a hypocrite can that be), Tory Spelling, etc. have all broken up families where there are children involved.

Lana on

I agree wholeheartedly with the selection of Angelina as the Beauty Icon of the Decade. There is no other. She is a natural beauty both inside and out. There is a genuine graciousness and kindness about her that just wins one over. She obviously loves her husband Brad and her children unconditionally and puts her man and family above everything else in her life. She has given her in-laws the Pitts the grandchildren they have always wanted and she and Brad together help so many people around the world and in the US of A who are in need – selflessly.

She is a wonderful role model for teens because even though she was a wild child as a youth, and how many of us have also been wild in our youth, she also demonstrates how one can change as a mature adult and become an arbiter for truth, love and justice in this world.

She is an outstanding, award winning actress with a professional approach to her job that is the envy of every director and every producer, and everyone who has worked with her praises her skills, her beauty and her professionalism.

Brad says she is the BEST gift he could give his children and she is his soulmate and his advisor. And she says of him he has made all her dreams come true and we are certain he and she love each other very much and continue to make each other’s dreams come true.

May only good and happiness find their way to this beautiful creature who is a bright, beaming, lovely light to this world and to her beloved family and fans.

I think Julia Roberts should occupy the #2 spot. Aniston should be nowhere on this list.

Jen on

She is the most beautiful woman of our generation in my eyes. Her face is natural and gorgeouse!!

aminata on

she is beautful, goodhearted, and a wonderful mother. it is so easy for people to cticise, and bring her past, that she was honest about. keep up the good work, angelina, and God bless you.

Leena on

With Angelina Jolie, there is no doubt, but with Aniston, pardon me but she looks like a man to me, hence the nickname Maniston, don’t you agree? I can never consider her beautiful, sorry.

sugar on

yeah,honestly i agree that Angelina Jolie is in the number 1 list because her beauty is unique also her style…
she is an extraordinary woman…
beauty isn’t only about physical appearance…
she’s beautiful inside and out, she’s a goddess and a sex symbol….

mdp on

yes, most def

sh on

of course. She’s perfect looking. She is beautiful.

bibble on

dis makesh mi happie ^_^ :D :) ;) :P hehe
go angie!! :D

lwg on

I think Aniston is included to pacify her fans that seemed to get a bit whiney and a bit rowdy.



pv on

very well deserved title; Angelina is beautiful. She never appeares like she had to try hard to look beautiful. Jennifer Anniston on the list? is this a joke?

Angelique on

I totally agree. Angie is so gorgeous, both inside and out! But Jennifer Aniston looks like a man and what style does she have besides wife beater tank tops and jeans? She’s a life-wrecker and thank god Brad got away from her before she could ruin any more of his life. Others I would add to the list are Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Christina Aguilera. Amazing and beautiful women who all do so much more than just “go shopping and self bake.” They are all selfless and truly beautiful-both inside and out.

Bianca on

She is so beautiful, inside and out. She has done a lot for the world. Such a strong woman…

anonymous on

She just is not all that great.

Meena on

I find that the list is not very international, and hence is incomplete.

Missing: Aishwarya Rai (India), Gong-Li (China) and Monica Bellucci (Italy)

These three actresses are not as well-known to people in the USA but their beauty should be recognised on an icon list.

tia on

i disagree i think hallie berry and jennifer aniston are way more beautiful than angelina jolie angelina jolie looks like joker now too much surgery

Pari on

Happy new year,,2010,,

Stephanie on

What makes her an icon is her distinctive look
I believe she will make the all-time
List as well. Her name will be equated with the decade just
As Farrah Fawcett was in the 70’s

takiyah on

i agree but they shud add beyonce,jennifer hudson,and queen latifah. beauty isn’t about being thin. it comes from inside and out.

Mika on

She is realy beautiful,

nikki on

I get tired of seeing these polls and sexiest shows on TV guide and the E channel where majority of women who make these top 10 or 5 are white. I need them 2 make the pannel of judges w/ more ethnicity so category can feature a wide range of women domestically and internationally. I love Angelina and Jennifer but they don’t hav nothing on Halle Berry, Aishwarya Rai, Roselyn Sanchez, Gabrielle Union, Gong-Li, Monica Belluici, Lucy Lu, Beyonce, Freda Pinto, and etc.., should be featured and celebrated. White isn’t always pretty u know!

Arielle b. on

I defintly agree with this. She is an inspiration to me & always has been growing up. I think she is one of the most beautiful women alive & she deserves every accomplishment she gets!!!

Dahlia Dharsono on

Angelina Jollie is beautiful inside out…,from top to toe !

Angelique on

Angelina is gorgeous, inside and out and that’s what makes her truly beautiful. Halle is okay but nothing extraordinary. I’d pick Jada over Halle anyday.

Angelina deserves this title and no one should beg to differ. Beauty comes in many forms and is on both the inside and the outside. Angelina has grown through a hard life and has gone through so much ever since her parents divorce. What makes her beautiful despite her beautiful face, her smile, her body …. is her giving spirit and her work for the unhcr that makes her tower above all other contenders. She’s a brillian actress and she doesnt place so much effort on her looks and red carpet events and insteads spends her time taking care of her children and giving back to society instead of thinking about herself and the hollywood eye.

Jennifer Aniston? please!! maybe shes a good woman, but she is NOT THAT BEAUTIFUL! go Angie!
