Jennifer Lopez Is ‘People’ Magazine’s Most Beautiful Person of 2011!

JLo's Wildest Fashion!
Check out her craziest looks!
Jennifer Lopez has had a great year: First she was named a new judge on American Idol, then she announced that she would be releasing a new album and now she has been named People’s Most Beautiful Woman of 2011!

The 41-year-old mom is quick to admit that she knows the importance of being pretty in Hollywood. “[Being beautiful] is part of my job,” JLo tells the magazine.”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!”

Although she knows that she has to work hard to get camera-ready, Jennifer reveals that she is the happiest when she has no make-up on because she is able to touch her face and eyes without worrying about messing everything up. “It’s so much better,” says Lopez.

While it’s no surprise that Jenny from the Block is a pretty lady, it is interesting to learn that her 3-year-old son Max enjoys having his nails painted.

“He wants to paint his nails too. Because for him, it’s just paint. He’s like, ‘I want the blue!'” Lopez tells People. “Then [my husband Marc Anthony] is like, ‘Why are Max’s nails painted?!’ But he won’t sit still so it’s only like two nails.”

Who else is on People’s Most Beautiful list for 2011? Black Swan actress Mila Kunis and newly single Ryan Reynolds.
