The Beauty Secret That Makes Jennifer Aniston So ‘Sexy’

jennifer anistonIn the ultimate "neener-neener-neener" to Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston was just crowned the "Hottest Woman of All Time" by Men's Health magazine. Yes, cute, girl-next-door Aniston beat out the hundreds of uber-sexy, uber-voluptuous women who, quite frankly, in my opinion at least, ooze more "sex" that the petite, down-to-earth-blonde. Men love Aniston, though. Clearly.

Hey, wanna know why?


Because she's funny. According to the magazine, "Funny is sexy, and Jennifer Aniston is funny -- she was invited to join Saturday Night Live before her big break with Friends." I respect that.

Jen's "funny," laid-back attitude totally translates into her style, too. Do you ever see Aniston wearing over-the-top, avant garde frocks a la Lady Gaga? Or do you ever see her spilling out of her top a la Kim Kardashian? Nope. Everything Aniston wears -- whether it's on the red carpet or on the streets of NYC -- looks comfortable. And looking comfortable in what you're in -- and like your clothes aren't wearing you -- gives you confidence. And, of course, nothing is sexier than confidence.

Then there's her beauty routine. I don't know exactly what Jen puts on her skin or in her hair (Lord, would I love to), but it doesn't seem like it takes that much effort. (Of course, this "look" could be totally calculated and cost a million dollars, but that's besides the point.) Jen's hair is always down, loose, and healthy-looking on the red-carpet, and when she's out and about, it's usually pulled back with a clip. The color, which has more or less been the same for years, looks like it's just naturally highlighted from lazy days whiling away at the beach. And her makeup is never heavy. Typically, just a few slicks of some lip gloss, a swipe of mascara, and of course, that signature golden tan.

So, in addition to her sense of humor, I think the actress can thank good genes and her totally laid-back, no-fuss appearance for the award. Men don't like high-maintenance women. And if you judge Jen strictly on looks, she totally doesn't look high-maintenance.

Do you think Jen deserved this award?
