“Decade of Hotness” is Guys Choice’s ultimate term of endearment for a woman that we just can’t get enough of.  Jennifer Aniston has the magic combination of Hall of Fame hotness and humor that makes every guy wish she lived next door.  Our audience has been asking for this for years, we’re thrilled to be honoring Jennifer,” says Casey Patterson, EVP, event production, talent and studio relations, Spike TV.

Aniston burst onto the scene in 1994 with her portrayal of Rachel Green in the hit NBC sitcom “Friends,” a role that garnered her several awards over its ten season run including an Emmy, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award.  Soon after she starred on the big-screen in the critically acclaimed films “Office Space” and “The Object of My Affection,” followed by box office smash hits “Bruce Almighty,” “Marley and Me,” “The Break Up” and “He’s Just Not That into You,” among many others.  In 2004, Aniston was named #1 on People Magazine’s The Most Beautiful, a list she has made every year since its inception in 1995 and, in 2005, GQ Magazine tabbed her as its first-ever Woman of the Year.  Aniston has been seen most recently in the box office hit “Just Go With It” and will star  in the dark comedy “Horrible Bosses.”
