World's five most eligible single women and some dream matchups

Being infamously unattached to Brad Pitt, Vince Vaughn and John Mayer is finally paying dividends for actor Jennifer Aniston. Though unlucky in romance, the 41-year-old former Friend has been voted the most eligible single woman in the world, according to a 60 Minutes-Vanity Fair poll released Monday.

Um … congratulations?

"This whole 'Poor lonely Jen' thing, this idea that I'm so unlucky in love?" Aniston once told Vogue. "I actually feel I've been unbelievably lucky in love. … I'm right where I'm supposed to be."

If that place is "by yourself," then, yes, Jen — mission accomplished! But the good news is you have interesting company. Here are the other females in the poll's top five.

Halle Berry

Pros: Oscar winner for Monster's Ball and former Miss USA runnerup.

Cons: Seems attracted only to other celebrities. Divorced from baseball player David Justice and musician Eric Benét.

Ideal mate: At 44, she's a wee bit older than most of the starting lineup, but why not date a Tampa Bay Ray? B.J. Upton could use a little spring in his step.

Elin Nordegren

Pros: The 30-year-old former Swedish model has a very, VERY large check sitting idle in the bank, thanks to Tiger Woods.

Cons: She can swing a metal club very, VERY hard. Good for golfing, bad for dating.

Ideal mate: Rafael Nadal. Men's tennis has been boring for years. What could possibly go wrong?

Betty White

Pros: Golden Girl still the toast of Hollywood; also good friends with famously available Sandra Bullock. At age 88, BW probably not against moving to St. Petersburg.

Cons: You can't keep up with her. Trust us: No one can.

Ideal mate: 16-year-old Justin Bieber. Combined, their average age is a very respectable 52.

Lady Gaga

Pros: At 24, she's the youngest female atop the poll. Plus, as pop culture's biggest star, she can bring home the bacon.

Cons: But she'll probably be wearing it as a dress.

Ideal mate: Sean Penn. If Gaga's going to rip off Madonna, she might has well have the Material Girl's true love, too.
