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 Vanity Fair magazine, beating off competition from Bond girl Halle Berry and Tiger Wood's ex-wife Elin Nordegren.
Aniston gained 29 per cent of the vote to Berry's 21 per cent and Swedish born Nordegren came third with 15 per cent.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 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 Berry 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 USD 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 has been linked to 29-year-New York barman and drummer Luc Carl.
