Age bias? What age bias? Eschewing Taylor Swift’s squad and other twentysomething starlets of gravitational advantage, People today named 47-year-old Jennifer Aniston as the World’s Most Beautiful Woman for 2016.
When the actress first heard she’d receive the ultimate honor for her looks, Aniston told People, “I thought, ‘Oh my God.’ There was this sort of very excited, teenage-y kind of moment.” On her quest to stay sexy well into middle age, Aniston added, “It’s funny: It’s a really quick transition from not a care, and now all of a sudden, we’ve got to really be mindful of what we put inside our bodies and how we sleep and take care of ourselves. You can get away with a lot in your twenties.”
