Jennifer Garner is People’s Most Beautiful Woman of 2019. The magazine has been naming the most beautiful woman for the last 30 years.
Talking about her childhood, Garner told People, “I was so not one of the pretty girls that I just bypassed insecurity and didn’t see myself as attractive at all. It was not part of my life. I felt good about myself back then! That is the lucky trick. Looks weren’t a big deal in my family. I don’t think my parents ever said ‘You’re pretty’ and so we just didn’t think about it.”
Also talking about how her kids perceive her beauty, she said, “I’ll feel like the best possible version of myself,” Garner adds. “They’ll look at me and say, ‘Can you wash your face? Can you put your hair in a ponytail and put your glasses and sweats on?’” she says, smiling. “And I see the compliment in that. They just want me to look like Mom.”
Garner also addressed her approach towards makeup, saying, “Do I seem like someone who’s good at applying makeup? I own the nicest brushes and I own contouring things. If I used it, I would just look bruised.” About her workout clothing “uniform”, she said, “I try so hard to get out of [them]. But sometimes the day just doesn’t give you a break to shower and put on my other uniform, which is jeans, a sweater, and sneakers.”
Pink, who was named the Most Beautiful Woman last year, told Ellen DeGeneres, “I feel more beautiful [now] and I have decided that for the whole week that the magazine is out, no one is allowed to look me directly in my eyes.”
Other recipients of the award include Julia Roberts, who has been named Most Beautiful 5 times, Christina Applegate and Michelle Pfeiffer.
