Jennifer Lopez is the World’s Most Beautiful Woman

April 13, 2011
It’s either the late ‘90s again or Jennifer Lopez has made a spectacular comeback in being named People magazine’s “World’s Most Beautiful Woman.”

The actress and singer is in the midst of a career resurgence thanks to her hosting gig on American Idol.

Jennifer Lopez says she was shocked by the honor. She told the magazine, “It's so crazy. Rarely am I left speechless, but I feel honored. I feel not worthy, you know? I feel happy and proud. Proud that I'm not 25!” Do you know when Lopez was 25? The late ‘90s. Though to be fair, Lopez looks as sexy now as then.

The Idol judge believes she is part of a wave of women in their forties who are changing perceptions about youth and beauty. She believes women like Halle Berry, Julia Roberts, and Jennifer Aniston are “redefining what it is to be a woman who is not in her 20s anymore but is still very viable, sexy, and important.” She’s right about that.

Lopez is said to keep her youthful, glowing appearance by undergoing regular placenta facials. Yep, she smears human placenta on her face. The bizarre facial stimulates skin regeneration and costs Lopez several thousand dollars a week.

While Lopez goes to extremes to keep her youthful look, she says beauty is skin deep (yeah, easy for the hot girl to say). The Maid in Manhattan star says “real beauty comes from your heart” and says the love of her husband and twin children is what keeps her looking so radiant. Yep, her beauty is all thanks to Marc Anthony.
