Men’s Health Magazine ranked the “hottest women of all time” and Jennifer Aniston came out #1. For real. OF ALL TIME. I actually understand when Aniston gets a high ranking when the contest is for “hottest bodies” or “looking great over 40”. She looks great for any age, and she takes very good care of her body. But I still don’t get how Aniston is “sexy,” much less “the hottest woman of all time.” I suspect that this honor was bought and paid for, much like Aniston’s Spike TV “Decade of Hotness” Award earlier this year, but whatever. You can see the full list of 100 here. Aniston even sat down and did an interview with Men’s Health too. Note the sycophantic tone proceeding the interview:
As you might imagine, getting Jennifer Aniston to answer a few questions these days is no easy feat. Perhaps no woman in show business fields more rancorous—and increasingly persistent—inquiries into the state of her dating life, her engagement status, or her desire to start a family. Hell, even we couldn’t resist tossing in a question about how her current boyfriend, the actor Justin Theroux, would feel about reading these words:
Funny is sexy, and Jennifer Aniston is funny—she was invited to join ‘Saturday Night Live’ before her big break with ‘Friends.’ Her down-to-earth persona makes her seem attainable, and anyone who’s seen her in ‘Office Space’ has to admit she makes even pieces of flair look good. She rarely plays the airhead, and she seldom overplays a role: she’s funny in a quiet, refreshingly human way. And her all-too-human love life off-screen inspires sympathy that not even a string of bland romantic comedies can diminish. Other sex symbols drift toward one-dimensionality, becoming flat icons in the process, but throughout her career Aniston has remained sexy, funny, and unmistakably real. For that reason, she is our all-time sexiest woman.
That’s what we said about Aniston in our guide to the 100 Sexiest Women of All-Time. And yes, we know dem’s fightin’ words. How could we be so brazen as to not begin and end the conversation with Marilyn Monroe? Or Angelina Jolie? Or Mila Kunis? Or… well, you get the idea. See for yourself—and re-rank the women on your own to let us know where you think Aniston—and 99 other all-time hotties—rightly belong.
Men’s Health: If you could name one woman the sexiest of all-time, who would you have picked?
Jennifer Aniston: It’s a tie between Bridgette Bardot and Gloria Steinem. But if I had to choose one, I’d say Gloria because, well, she’s the full package. That’s sexy.
Looking back, who is the least sexy character you’ve ever played?
The least sexy character was Jeannie Bueller on the TV version of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
You’re one of few celebrities out there without a Twitter or Facebook account. If we gave you the reins to both of ours for a single post, what would you want our readers to know?
One single post … what would I want readers to know … I really shouldn’t be holding these reins.
Most of our guys are funny and fit. Besides six-pack abs and the ability to make you laugh, what’s the next-sexiest quality that a guy can have?
Sexiest thing about a man—other than abs—is if he can make me laugh, has compassion, kindness, and an accurately sized ego.
You’ve given dozens of interviews to men’s magazines over the years. What’s something surprising that most men still don’t know about you?
What readers don’t know: I can breakdance. No, that’s a lie. But wouldn’t that be cool?
[From Men’s Health]
Gloria Steinem? “Accurately sized ego”? Breakdance? No comment.
I did want to point out one thing, though – I was totally wrong! Earlier this week, when I was discussing how it was Angelina Week and it was going to be full-on all-Angelina as she promoted her film, I made a bet with all of you that Jennifer Aniston was going to do what she almost always does and get conveniently “pap’d” throughout Angelina Week. That didn’t happen – it’s pretty much radio silence from Aniston and Theroux this week. Could it be that Aniston is no longer trying to steal (“homewreck”) focus from Brangelina? Could it be that she’s finally over it?
