Jennifer Aniston: World's Most Eligible Single Woman

Her last few big screen movies may have received the cold shoulder from critics, but Jennifer Aniston is still hot enough for the general public.

The former "Friends" star was voted the most eligible single woman in the world in a new "60 Minutes"/Vanity Fair poll, reports the Chicago Tribune.

Aniston, 41, topped the poll with 29 percent of the vote. She has been romantically linked to some of entertainment's biggest names - Brad Pitt, John Mayer and Vince Vaughn among them - and is considered unlucky in love due to her many high-profile dating failures.

Despite her dating status - she has recently been linked to "Cougar Town" star Josh Hopkins - Aniston has said that she doesn't want people to feel sorry for her.

"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 feel good. 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," she said in 2008 interview with Vogue.

Aniiston was followed by Halle Berry, who polled at 21 percent. The Academy Award-winning actress also has a string of high profile ex-boyfriends, including former Atlanta Braves outfielder David Justice and R & B singer Eric Benet. She recently split with former boyfriend and the father of her child, French-Canadian model Gabriel Aubry.

The former Mrs. Tiger Woods, Swedish model Elin Nordegren, landed in the third spot with 15 percent. Besides her obvious physical beauty, she was also the recipient of a reported $100 million in her divorce settlement with the star golfer.

Fourth? Newly ubiquitous octogenarian Betty White, who has had a renaissance of late due to star turns on "Saturday Night Live" and a popular Snickers commercial. She took in 11 percent.

Rounding out the poll were a pair of disparate public figures. Pop sensation Lady Gaga came in fifth with five percent and new Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan captured four percent of the vote.
