She may have a reputation for being unlucky in love, but Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston has been named the most eligible single woman in the world, in a new poll.
The 41-year-old actress who was married to heartthrob Brad Pitt, topped the poll conducted by a magazine, beating off competition from Halle Berry and Tiger Wood's ex-wife Elin Nordegren. Aniston gained 29% of the vote to Berry's 21% and Swedish born Nordegren came third with 15%. The poll appeared to favour a slightly more mature single woman with 88-year-old Betty White beating out Lady Gaga, 24, into fifth place.
Aniston has been linked to a number of men, including singer John Mayer and actor Vince Vaughn, since her five year marriage to Pitt that came to an end in 2005. But she has poured scorn on her 'unlucky' romantic reputation. "This whole 'Poor lonely Jen' thing, this idea that I'm so unlucky in love....I actually feel I've been unbelievably lucky in love. I don't feel like I'm supposed to be any further along or somewhere that I'm not. I'm right where I'm supposed to be," said Aniston Meanwhile, the other ladies on the list have had varied fortunes in the love stakes. 44-year-old Berr has been linked to French actor Olivier Martinez after splitting from her model boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.
Back in August, Nordegren received a divorce settlement of at least $60 million from golfer Woods after he was found to have cheated on her with a bevy of women. Meanwhile "Golden Girl" star Betty White has been single since her husband Allen Ludden passed away in 1981. Lady Gaga on the other hand, has been dating 29-year-old New York barman and drummer Luc Carl.
