Jennifer Lopez is People Mag’s “Most Beautiful” of 2011, meh


Gossip Cop had this exclusively several days ago, but I didn’t run with it because I didn’t want to believe that Jennifer Lopez was named People Magazine’s “Most Beautiful” yet again. I’m pretty sure she got it in the early 2000s. It just seems like… meh. Yeah, I think Jennifer is very pretty, but I’d like to see some new ladies get the title. Can I get some Anne Hathaway into this junk? Maybe some Kate Middleton (it would be timely!)? How about some Jon Hamm? I mean, I know the “Most Beautiful” title traditionally goes to a lady, but WHY NOT THE HAMM? (I want that on a t-shirt.) So, blah, whatever, Jennifer is Most Beautiful:


Jennifer Lopez admits she loves glamming it up as a judge on American Idol or for her upcoming album, Love?.

But at home with husband Marc Anthony and their 3-year-old twins, Max and Emme, Lopez is a zero-makeup kind of mom. “That’s when I’m my happiest,” she says in this week’s exclusive cover story. “Just being able to touch my face and rub my eyes and put my fingers in my hair and not having to worry about messing it up. It’s so much better.”

From her skincare regimen to her grueling workouts and portion-controlled diet, Lopez says she makes a concerted effort to stay in top form. “The thing is, it’s part of my job,” says the singer, who ran a triathlon six months after she gave birth. “I don’t want anybody thinking it’s easy. It does take time and it’s hard work. HDTV wide-screen is nobody’s friend!”

Lopez, 41, also has learned valuable beauty tips over the years, and says daughter Emme is starting to prove she’s her mother’s child. “She is very girly-girl, just like me since I was very little. She loves for me to paint her nails,” Lopez says. “She lays out her clothes on the floor like I do with my stylist and she’s like, ‘This matches very good!’ ”

And what about son Max? “He wants to paint his nails too. Because for him, it’s just paint. He’s like, ‘I want the blue!’” Lopez says, laughing. “Then Marc is like, ‘Why are Max’s nails painted?!’ But he won’t sit still so it’s only like two nails.”

As for being called a “diva,” she says, “I kind of like it. We’ve kind of owned it now. But I certainly don’t like and I’ve never been a person who has what they call ‘diva behavior,’ which is something they tried to pin on me for a long time.”

[From People]

Bitch, you’re a diva and you have committed thousands of acts of diva-hood over your lifetime. Own it. Acknowledge it. Love it. Stop trying to play like you’re just some normal working mother who can relate to all of the moms out there. But that’s who Jennifer is trying to be now – she’s all mainstream now that she’s on American Idol. J.Lo is Middle America. Guess how Middle America she is? She sends her nannies to Target. FOR REAL.

Apparently the other big names on the “Most Beautiful” list include a who’s who of C-list bitches in desperate need of good publicity. Zac Efron… Jessica Alba… Anne Heche, Hayden Panettiere, Angie Harmon. Ugh. Also included: Clooney, Bullock and Beyonce.

    It shows that People Magazine don’t know beauty if it came up and botox the feeling right off its’ ass. Not that JL is not good looking but no

  2. TXCinderella says:

    I think J-Lo is pretty, but Most Beautiful? No. She looks very good for 41 though.

  3. khaveman says:

    She looks very pretty for her age. Good for her.

  4. Bite me says:

    Love la Lopez, but poor hung needs to give it up
    Edit horseface jula Roberts was considered most beautiful last year, so I guess this is an improvement

  5. Kevin says:

    Must be judging exterior only. Even that’s a stretch though.

  6. mia girl says:

    I guess that was money well spent on lobbying for the most beautiful title. Her publicist must have gotten a real nice gift
    She is very pretty, so maybe it’s the “try hard” that I don’t find so beautiful.

  7. whitedaisy says:

    Holy crap. I’ve said it before and I will say it again.
    She has the BEST agent in Hollywood to get her the gigs she gets.
    She is just irrelevant, or should be, based on talent.

    It would be nice if People chose someone who hadn’t had that much plastic surgery for their cover of “Most Beautiful”.

  8. Jezi says:

    She looks good but wtf is up with her eyebrows lately? Like two caterpillars sitting above her eyes.

  9. Marjalane says:

    Did they by any chance post a “before” picture of Jlo when she was a FlyGirl on Living Color? (Insert respectful golf clap for awesome plastic surgery)

    I was willing to give Jlo a chance on American Idol, but she’s proven herself unworthy with her constant interruptions and self-proclaimed musical prowess. Me no likey.

  10. Jackson says:

    That cover photo looks shopped to Hell.
    Slim pickins’ on that list. And I agree with above that she must have a great team working for her.

  11. padiddle says:

    Might as well give the most beautiful title to makeup and extensions. She looks average without tons of both.
    That said, she does look damn good when she’s “made up” I’ll give her that.

  12. JaisyMaisy says:

    What kinda outfit is that????

  13. Samigirl says:

    Oh WHATEVER. Mila Kunis ftw!

  14. leuce7 says:

    I think she looks amazing period, not to mention for her age, but most beautiful? No.

    I don’t think she’s trying to sell herself as “just like us” and middle America, and frankly, if I were as rich as she was, I wouldn’t be doing any shopping myself other than recreationally. She’s got a reputation of having an amazing work ethic, and I admire her for that.

    That being said, she is also suffering from major self-delusion if she thinks she’s never exhibited diva behavior. Really? Isn’t half the point of getting as rich and famous as she is to be able to out-diva someone else? And she’s up there in diva-dom.

  15. Andrea says:

    I sure hope they printed plenty of photos of her making that “I smelled a fart” face and accompanying pose that she always does. Can’t wait to see more of that!

  16. anonymous says:

    What a travesty, not that Jlo isn’t beautiful but what don’t we know about Jlo, this is so rediculous, how much husbands have she had to date, how much restilayne and juvederm injections. People magazine now really, your editor is out of touch,in of all of Hollywood your editor couldn’t find an up and coming beautiful starlette au natural, that the public is curious and would like to know more about their background and personal life. There is a section for older starlettes like J’lo right?

  17. OtherChris says:

    Hold on, now? Is it 1998? Because if it is I need to go back to bed and get some rest, seeing as how I don’t have kids yet and there’s probably a good-looking, uncomplicated guy waiting there.

  18. Faye says:

    I hate being told who’s “most sexy, most beautiful, etc.” It’s pointless.

  19. Melanie says:

    Julia Roberts again? She is the most overrated “beauty” in history.

  20. serena says:

    Clooney and Bullock? Oh come on.. put in some fresh meat!

  21. atorontogal says:

    Ugh! prejudiced much? “cotton picken puerto-rican”?? wtf is that? Your ignorance is showing!!!

  22. Rhiley says:

    Are you kidding me? I haven’t read People in years, but I have to say, it has sunk low low low. Ugh. People used to be so interesting because it was mix of actors/actresses/writers/musicians/and regular joes and janes. I wish they had given it to Sofia Vergara. I guess the bright side is that at least Natalie Portman didn’t get it.

  23. The H says:

    But.. You’d think Natalie Portman would get it considering she is is in damn news daily! J Lo…? it’s cause she is REAL, yo!

  24. Brittney says:

    It definitely should’ve been Mila Kunis. Her face in the little box below Lopez’s is evidence enough that she’s far and away the most beautiful.

  25. lucy2 says:

    I think she’s very pretty, but the most beautiful? No way.
    I agree with whitedaisy, her agent must be a freaking magician.

  26. P.J. says:

    J-Lo’s new “big eyebrows” are interesting. Wonder if that’s going to be a new trend?

  27. woot says:

    YESSS…her face is gorgeous without being porny and her body is killer!

  28. hstl1 says:

    I think she hasn’t transcended the ghetto fab thing the same way that Gwen Stefani still looks like some dumb, Valley, faux-punk. They both dress in costumes and don’t have any real beauty or style.

    JLo is still stuck in Diddy land.

  29. Bubbling says:

    Honestly I think she looks best she looked in years. I remember she had that phase right before or after the kids,po’ thang tried so hard but couldn’t get out of fashion circa 2000. Anyhoodle I respect women who squeezed every last drop of their beauty and talent and putting it to work (Vicky B)

  30. Rita says:

    HOORAY!!!! This is really encouraging. It means that we all have a chance at People’s coveted “Most Beautiful”. I’m going to get my hair done just in case I’m nominated.

  31. Cali says:

    About 7-10 years too late…

  32. Mark says:

    I wonder how much she paid the mag. She is the most over rated entity on the planet.

  33. Kim123 says:

    People always selects a person that is popular at the same time last year It was Julia(Eat Pray Love)before that C. Applegate( breast cancer) before that Drew Barrymore..Personally I think JLo is more beautiful than the last three women. I would like to see a Black or Asian on the cover for Most Beautiful or Sexiest Man for a change.

  34. Lisa says:

    As a Latina I am ashamed to see how low People Mag has stooped. There are plenty of beautiful women out here. I guess none of us have the Diva attitude and money to pull the front cover of People off.

  35. Amanda says:

    I guess they weren’t taking natural beauty into consideration this year. JLo really loves to schelack on that makeup and tanner and the hair extensions, not to mention the plastic surgery. Oh well!

  36. TeeTee says:

    I was JUST thinking… I wonder how much this cost Benny Medina to get this one.

    it only a coincidence, that she just comes back out and NOW she’s voted the most beautiful..her huge ego needs a boost huh??

    she is good looking–NOT the most beautiful by a long shot.

    its funny to me, LOL

    no one is checking for JLo anymore and she can’t sing, she sounds like a injured cat.

  37. tomas says:

    Plastic surgery can do wonders…she is literally unrecognizable from her early days in the business.

  38. Solveig says:

    She has very unique features, to me she has the most beautiful face in HW. But there’s something off about her appereance, something that makes me think “meh” everytime I see her. Probably it’s her lack of class and charm. She’s not fascinating enough to me to deserve the title of “most beautiful”.

  39. The Bobster says:

    I’ve seen her without makeup. It looks like she put her face on wet and it ran.

    Of course, the title means little after the hideous Michelle Kwan finished in the top 50.

  40. Ron says:

    I was up in Hollywood yesterday and there was a call for models at one of the casting offices and let me tell you, Jenny is not the most beautiful woman in the world. She looks great, and it’s nice to see them put someone over 40 in this light, but seriously People?

  41. sassy says:

    is she wearing “Barbie shoes” in that picture?? I thought my 3 year old daughter lost those under her bed. They actually ended up on JLo’s feet!

  42. junipergreen says:

    Well, her “beauty” is courtesy of plastic surgeons.

    She’s an attractive woman, but beautiful? No way. MOST beautiful? Definitely not. I wonder what the process was for selecting their most beautiful woman… Kinda makes one wonder..

    Seems to me a beautiful woman should also be striking. She’s not.

  43. bagladey says:

    When I thought of the most beautiful woman in the world right now, my mind went to memories of Mila Kunis over the awards season and after that I could not think of anyone else to give the title to.

  44. Shoe_Lover says:

    How much did she pay People to give her the title?

  45. Louise says:

    It’s funny that 6 months ago Jennifer was a step away from being a hasbeen. Her songs weren’t getting airplay, she lost her contract, her movies were bombing. Now she’s everywhere. Music all over radio, she’s got all kinds of product contracts. I liked her 10 years ago but I find her really annoying.

  46. HotLatino says:

    She’s the most beautiful IMO, why the shock? Cuz she ain’t white or what???! She’s always chosen as the most influential and most beautiful by People en Espanol and it’s true, she’s BREATH-TAKING! JLo, I love you, I can’t wait to buy LOVE?

  47. HotLatino says:

    and what if she had plastic surgery? Nobody said beauty is natural, I had a nose job and I own it, just because you have something done, doesn’t mean your fake, it’s the jealous people who can’t afford surgery the ones who criticize those who can!

  48. Ruffian9 says:

    I think everyone is aware that People’s “Most Beautiful” is really “who has a current project (movie, TV show, etc.)and will give us an exclusive?”

  49. gee_gee says:

    People’s “Best Publicist Award”. That’s the correct headline. They need to discontinue this list.

  50. Camille says:

    That is an awful cover photo of her. Not good.

    And what a boring list of nobodies they also included.

    Mila Kunis should have been named most beautiful.

  51. jemshoes says:

    This list seems so … uninspired, almost insipid. It’s like the People people (haha) are stuck in a rut and won’t own that they are. ;)

  52. MaudeLebowski says:

    Actually Hotlatte, there is just a huge pile of women that are prettier than her. Of all different races. Don’t you feel lazy reaching for the race card immediately?

  53. Sam says:

    I read somewhere that Kellan Lutz was on the list. Kellan Lutz wants everyone to know that Kellan Lutz is beautiful. Kellan Lutz works Kellan Lutz’s butt off to look that good.

  54. Kosmos says:

    Terrible choice. Not a Jenny fan she’s way too bossy and full of herself. Overall, she’s not that beautiful without the adornments and photo shopping. It seems like People has to pick someone and they’ve picked many men and women who are merely average looking, but surely not most sexy or beautiful. Take it with a grain of salt.

  55. JenJen says:

    Now she will never get over herself.

  56. Judy says:

    She looks good for her age…she’s ONLY 41!!! How old are you people…12!!! She deserved the cover.

  57. Paige says:

    That title is not appropriate that was the opinion of a few executives at People magazine opinion clearly a billion people were not surveyed for the title to be the World’s most beautiful they should have said “People Magazine Most Beautiful” Did anyone noticed how they waited to announce it the same day as American Idol night? Great marketing strategy they received free publicity by having the magazine mentioned on American Idol very well orchestrated on their part . Jennifer is pretty but requires a team for hair and makeup so at the end of the day if she wasn’t a celebrity she would be an average pretty girl. Google Jennifer Lopez without makeup and you will see what I mean.

  58. Jen says:

    Anne Hathaway, the most beautiful? you must be on something.

    I love that they picked JLO, she is really beautiful.

  59. Newbie says:

    Oh, the who’s who of the surgically-enhanced crop of pre-approved faces. How original. How exciting. I’m blind with envy. *fart*

    The whole Mila Kunis thing is good. All the others tried, TIRED, and true.

  60. Newbie says:

    Like George Clooney. Really? He looks like a standard, middle-aged man. He was a lot yummier when he was younger. And they overdo it by having him in the damn rag year. after. year. after. year. Like we can’t find prettier boys in our own backyards.

  61. Mari says:

    Better than Anne Hathaway and Julia Roberts, neither of whom are beautiful — eyes are too close together and are becoming very tiresome.

  62. elemental says:

    What????????? who comes up with this bullsh#$!

    its like the title goes out to the publicist who pays the most$$$$$. People magazine has really gone down hill in a “cheesy” kinda way….

  63. Sdiddy says:

    Ok, I’m with you on J-Lo not being the winner…….but ANNE HATHAWAY???? Seriously??? Apparently looks mean ABSOLUTELY nothing at this point, cause if she makes the cover so does Mr Ed…..a ghostly, never seen the sun Mr Ed

  64. Lady G says:

    Ouch. Her People cover was SO PHOTOSHOPPED I could not bear looking at it. This woman is cute, period, and far from the world’s most beautiful woman. She has also had her face ‘adjusted’ by surgeons over the years. Someone got paid or blown or both.

  65. Gina says:

    Okay, here’s my question: Do people on that cover actually pay to be put there? Where do they come up with the crap that she was “voted.” By whom? I didn’t get a ballot, did any of you? I guess mine was lost in the mail…All I see is a has been depserately trying to hang on. She has no idea that the general public can see how transparent she is. She thinks that AI was a choice for her. It wasn’t. She had no choice since everything else financially was going to hell. And now with Gillette and hair colors…come on Jenny from the block, who do you think you’re kidding? It kills me that she’s so shameless. She listens to these voices on AI which can be pretty damn amazing and then gets up to do her stupid song and can’t do it live. and the way she talks to those contestants…Jeez Jenny pick up a friggin’ thesaurus and learn other words for like and baby…musiical talent judged by JLO? Irony anyone…

  66. I want people to choose the most beautiful woman on his behavior as well

  67. ken says:

    I see better looking women every day.
    Why and who decides ?
