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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
