In a video for PeopleTV announcing her cover, Jennifer said getting the news that she'd been named the World's Most Beautiful Woman once again — the first time was in 2004 — was a surprise.
'I thought, "Oh my God",' she said. 'There was sort of very excited, sort of teenager-y kind of moment of feeling very, very flattered.'
So how has she managed to look so gorgeous in the public eye for over two decades? Jen, whose own beauty icons include Gloria Steinem, Brigitte Bardot, and Lauren Hutton, said it's all about taking good care of yourself.
'Oh yes, I've got a healthy bag of vitamins I take three times a day, like Viviscal and your basic omegas and vitamin C. Good stuff,' she said.
She also makes sure to exercise for about an hour six days a week, doing a spin-yoga class three days, weight-training three days, and cardio at home — and insists she feels most beautiful after 'finishing a great workout'.
That's nice! Jen said she was 'very flattered' to earn the title and felt like a teenager being complimented

'Because I've taken care of my body, my endorphins are going, my blood is pumping,' she went on. 'I'm taking care of the one body I have.'
Those endorphins mean she's happy, too, which she says is important — feeling good on the inside leads to looking good on the outside.
'Inner confidence. Peace. Kindness. Honesty. A life well-lived,' she said, listing what she believes are the keys to beauty. 'Taking on challenges and not feeling shame for things that haven't gone the way you felt they should have. And not feeling like a failure or allowing people to critique your life and make you feel like you've failed at something. That's just toxic noise.'
Though Friends fans would beg to differ, Jennifer insists she didn't always look so amazing, or even feel so great about herself.
How she does it: In the magazine, she opened up about her beauty secrets and insecurities
Double dose: In addition to speaking to the magazine for the current issue, she participated in a video interview
Looks good to us: The star said she was told she was 'chubby' at the start of her career
Pretty: She also said she needed contouring because her face was 'almost a complete circle'
Tight: These days, she can't believe bubble butts are a 'trend', because she worked so hard to get rid of hers
'When I was in my 20s, my face was almost a complete circle. So I really needed contouring,' she said, adding that what was happening 'before' was 'unfortunate'. But, she went on: 'Now I'm slowly chiseling away, wishing I had that round face back.'
She's also lost weight since an agent told her she was 'too chubby' at the start of her career, which she attributes to a 'terrible' diet of 'milk shakes and French fries with gravy'.
'I used to be such a little round thing,' she said. These days, she tends to start her day with hot lemon water, coffee, and a protein shake, before moving onto a salad for lunch and roasted chicken for dinner. She snacks on things like string cheese and hard-boiled eggs.
Even now, though, she has trouble accepting one area of her figure that's always been a little rounder.

'Well, I've never loved my butt. It's sort of a thing. I had a bubble butt and was teased,' she said, before admitting: 'Now people are paying money to get things injected. Like, we're sitting here dying over squats and I'm like, "Wait, what the trend?!?"
'Now I'm just, like, my body is my body, so I've embraced things overall,' she said. 'Beauty has really changed for me over the years. It's really learning to love everything about yourself and also realizing that it's not just, sort of, clothes and what's happening [on your face], but there's so much more that's beautiful in a human being.'
Jennifer also opened up about her relationship with husband Justin Theroux, telling the magazine that they 'always' work out together and he is 'just the sweetest and the nicest human'.
'He's a really kind guy, which is huge,' she said. 'He's the easiest person. I have great conversations with him. He makes me laugh — he's so interesting and so interested.'
