Jennifer Aniston Is "PEOPLE's" "Most Beautiful Woman"

At 47 years old, Jennifer Aniston is looking better than ever, according to People. The magazine has just crowned the actress the Most Beautiful Woman in the World for 2016. Fellow A-listers who have won the honor include Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and, last year, Sandra Bullock.

In the accompanying cover story, Aniston claims when she heard about the title being bestowed upon her, she thought, " 'Oh my God.' There was this sort of very excited, teenage-y kind of moment."

The Friends alum who transitioned to movies -; her latest role is in Mother's Day -; got lots of attention in her early years for her trendy haircuts and style, but as she's gotten older she's become admired for her healthy lifestyle and age-defying yoga body. She now appears in ads for Living Proof haircare and Smart Water.

Aniston told the magazine she feels her best when she's healthy and strong, adding that, "We've got to really be mindful of what we put inside our bodies and how we sleep and take care of ourselves. You can get away with a lot in your 20s." Surely her hubby Justin Theroux is proud.
