She was named People’s Most Beautiful Woman of 2019.

Recalling her first InStyle cover back in 2004 at the age of 32, she said: ‘I had been working professionally in the industry for 11 years, and I thought, “Wow, I have been through some things.” I thought I’d been around the block.’ 

‘Fifteen years later I realize, “My god, I hadn’t even been through anything bad yet.”‘ 

Jennifer also revealed at the time she was jumping from project to project and in turn as one of the ‘hot girls’ at the time, making choices that ended up defining her.

The actress explained she felt boxed in whether it was for going on hiatus, being pregnant or having her three children.  

And while confessing she’s no longer as stressed as before in terms of finding her place in the industry, she said that unlike in her late 20s and early 30s, the offers don’t come in as frequently. 

‘I don’t have the offers coming at me that I had during that first cover [back in 2004], but I know that what does come my way is because someone really wants to see me take a shot at a role.’  

And despite Jennifer claiming the offers have slowed down, she still continues to be one of Hollywood’s brightest stars.
