Angelina may have gotten Brad, but Jen takes this one: Men’s Health Magazine voted Jennifer Aniston #1 ”Hottest Woman of All Time” in the magazine’s Top 100 list. (And Angie fell to #10!) Does the former Friends star deserve it? We definitely think so. Who else topped the list?
Madonna, one of the largest icons ever is also named one of the hottest, coming in at #5. We can’t disagree. Hey, we’ve seen her amazing music videos, her sexy VMA performances, and everything in-between. “She’s like a flip-book of fashion, gyration, and melody bonded by a Zeitgeist-defining compunction for incessant, provocative reinvention,” as Men’s Health put it. ”It’s as impossible to imagine pop culture without Madonna as it is to guess what a light bulb would do without Benjamin Franklin.”
Britney Spears is #4 list, and it makes us extremely proud. After all the hard times Brit has seen over the years, we agree that she is still one of the hottest women ever. From “(Hit Me) Baby One More Time,” to the super sexy fan-favorite “Slave 4 U,” to the more recent ”Criminal,” hot is one word Britney knows all about. She’s performed with a snake, in a skin-colored body suit, and even with Xtina and Madonna at the VMA’s. Does it get any sexier?
Marilyn Monroe has topped many many lists, and this is just another. Landing the #3 spot on Men’s Health‘s list, Monroe is an icon for every woman, everywhere. They explain it well, saying Marilyn is ”the star who single-handedly seduced a sitting President, charmed a baseball legend, and inspired countless generations of women to stock up on peroxide.” Born Norma Jeane Mortenson, Monroe is famous for always being a sex icon, inspiring all women, and leaving some pretty great quotes behind. Two of our favorites are “Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world,” and “I don’t mind living in a man’s world, as long as I can be a woman in it.”
Raquel Welch was named Playboy’s most desirable women of the 70′s. Men’s Health also thinks she’s runner-up in the Hottest Women contest. She’s famous for posing in swimwear: “It’s one of the most iconic posters of all-time: a vulnerable Raquel Welch, clad in mankind’s first bikini,” says Men’s Health. Welch started as a weather forecaster, and ended up with a Golden Globe for her small role in Three Musketeers. Now she’s #2 on the flattering list.
Of their chosen hottie, Men’s Health says that Jennifer Aniston is “funny in a quiet, refreshingly human way.” They also make a good point that she’s pretty relatable with her love life: “Her all-too-human love life off-screen inspires sympathy that not even a string of bland romantic comedies can diminish. Other sex symbols drift toward one-dimensionality, becoming flat icons in the process, but throughout her career Aniston has remained sexy, funny, and unmistakably real.”Tags: Britney Spears, jennifer aniston, Madonna, marilyn monroe, Men's Health, Men's Health Names 'Hottest Women of All Time, Raquel Welch
