Jennifer Lopez has made it to the top of People magazine’s Most Beautiful list.

The New York-born ‘American Idol’ judge beat out the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner and Eva Longoria.

‘Rarely am I left speechless, but I feel honored,’ the 41-year-old singer told the magazine.

Jenny from the Block, whose current single ‘On the Floor’ is No. 8 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart this week, is married to singer Marc Anthony and has twins with him. Her upcoming album titled ‘Love?’ will be out in May. And, lest we forget, Lopez recently debuted a reworking of the classic ‘Venus’ song in Gilette razor commercials and has attained the unique title of ‘Venus Global Ambassador.’

‘I don’t want anybody thinking it’s easy. It does take time and it’s hard work. HDTV wide-screen is nobody’s friend!’ Lopez, she of the perfect posterior, said of her beauty regimen.


Other women who made People’s list: singer Jessica Simpson, Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson, ‘Tangled’ star Mandy Moore, ‘Desperate Housewives’ ’ Dana Delany, Mrs. Tom Cruise Katie Holmes and ‘The Office’s’ Mindy Kalig and Ellie Kemper.

On the men’s side, Zac Efron took top honors. The 23-year-old ‘High School Musical’ alum took first place thanks to his abs, pecs and chest.

‘I think it’s important to remember to live in the moment and enjoy every day to the fullest,’ Efron told the magazine.

Efron, who also topped last year’s list, is set to appear in Garry Marshall’s star-studded ‘New Year’s Eve.’

Behind him were ‘Twilight’ hottie Kellan Lutz and newly single Ryan Reynolds, People’s sexiest man alive.

This year’s Most Beautiful issue hits newsstands Friday.
