Jennifer Aniston is People magazine’s “Most Beautiful Woman” 2016, Gossip Cop is exclusively reporting. A publishing source tells us Aniston has been tapped for the honor for the second time. She was first chosen as the magazine’s “Most Beautiful Woman” in 2004. Gossip Cop reached out to reps for Aniston and People, but neither would comment. We will update, if need be, when there’s an official announcement on Wednesday.
We’re told the cover is tied to the release on April 29 of the upcoming ensemble comedy Mother’s Day. Aniston, of course, is not the only star of that movie to have graced People magazine’s “Most Beautiful Woman” cover. Her co-star Kate Hudson held the “Most Beautiful Woman” title in 2008, and Julia Roberts has been awarded the honor more than any other actress. Roberts was previously selected People magazine’s “Most Beautiful Woman” in 1991, 2000, 2005, and 2010.
Last year, Sandra Bullock was the magazine’s “Most Beautiful Woman.” And the year before that, Gossip Cop exclusively (and accurately) reported Lupita Nyong’o was chosen for the recognition. We also exclusively broke in 2011 that Jennifer Lopez was People magazine’s “Most Beautiful Woman.” So far, the magazine has announced that among the women included in its this year’s “Most Beautiful Women” issue are Carrie Underwood, Christina Milian, Reese Witherspoon, Sofia Vergara, Keke Palmer, and Selena Gomez.
