Jennifer Aniston is #1 Celebrity Cover Girl

Jennifer Aniston is #1 Celebrity Cover Girl

People can’t get enough of Jennifer Aniston!

The former Friends star is the top cover star, according to Forbes‘ first-ever analysis of the top-selling celebrity faces. Her face has collectively sold more than 5 million copies. Here’s who rounded out the top 10?

2) Brad Pitt
3) Scarlett Johansson
4) Angelina Jolie
5) Reese Witherspoon
6) Katie Holmes
7) Carrie Underwood
8) Jennifer Hudson [tie]
8) Valerie Bertinelli [tie]
10) Kelly Ripa

Think their analysis is hokey? Check out their formula: “We looked at the newsstand sales of the six leading celebrity weeklies– People, Star, US Weekly, In Touch Weekly, Life & Style and OK!–over a six-month period ending June 30, as supplied by the Audit Bureau of Circulations. We eliminated all non-celebrity and collage covers as well as special issues with exceptionally large rate bases. Then we counted how many more–or less–issues the celebrity’s cover sold, as compared with the magazine’s average newsstand sales. Next, we factored in the number of full covers a celebrity graced. Finally, we ranked his or her consumer appeal using data from Encino, Calif.-based polling firm E-Poll Market Research to rule out flukes.”

The biggest disappointment at the newsstand? Britney Spears with an abnormally low appeal score of 3. The only one who scored worse? Paris Hilton, who scored a 2.

    hello? what happend to britney spears?? if she isnt selling magazines, then why are these idiots following her and taking pictures?

  • lylian

    Congratulations to Jennifer. I’m sure she is delighted to be the most sought after celebrity tablie cover. I think it is wonderful her fans support her by buying the tablies.

  • OK

    Thank goodness! Does that mean the trash magazines will stop featuring Angie and Brad now? Please, please, just continue putting Jen on the cover.

  • Rubyrose77

    Nice to see Brad came 2nd

  • caro

    Aniston earned the top spot thanks to strong performances across the board. In addition to garnering a high appeal score of 36, making her the second-most-liked cover subject behind Sandra Bullock, she proved a success at the newsstand. Appearing on every title except In Touch at least once during the time period, her face collectively sold more than 5 million copies.

    This poll is total BS!!!!!!!!!

    GO REESE GO. Reese is my #1

  • lila

    katie is my #1

  • http://www.crazygal.com Mojo

    Nobody is my #1

  • She has….

    CHARISMA baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • It’s Britney, b*tch

    I hate obsessed-haters calling her Maniston…and I hate people calling Angie skeletor.I HATE NAME CALLING! Bullying isn’t accepted in school, so it sure shouldn’t be accepted in anywhere else either.
    There are young people reading these threads and peoples superficial view on life affects those young people.

    Just becuz you judge people by their looks doesn’t mean that everyone else has to.

    STOP THE HATING!

  • She has….

    CHARISMA baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    She is not as beautiful as Angelina or many many others. But she has something that public responds to in a big way. Please don’t say it is all because of Mr. Huvane, because you know and I know that he couldn’t possibly get this kind of results in every major poll.

  • Tiger

    Hilarious, Poor Brad., he is the ONLY guy on the list.Cracks me up completely.I somehow get the feeling he doesn’t want that title either.

    Funny how George and Tom and the other A list men in Hollywood manage to stay off the covers.I wonder what male would be second to Brad?? Anyone have a guess?

  • Jessica

    Chiniston sells mags because she constantly tries to be in the tabloids. First, constantly play the “jilted woman”, second, get your nose and whatever else needs to be done (there are so many imperfections….where to start?). Next she will try to enter rehab or not wear underwear!

  • marina

    It would be nice that this popularity contest wouldn’t involve trashing so badly with someone’s children (the JPs, britney’s, etc.)

    The tabloids keep the bermuda triangle alive, it would be interesting to know ho many of these covers say something negative? I think most of these covers are “yellow press”, so it is not so great to be in the first places in mostly tabloid mags, unless you love it, like Lindsay Lohan who once said that it would be weird not to be in them or something like that.

    I like the BAMPZS and I do not like them to be in this list, they are popular, but hopefully they will be left in peace for the sake of the kids

    Their analysis isn’t hokey, Jared, you’re just trying to cover up for the failure of your St. Angelina. You didn’t print the good stuff – like:

    “If couples as entities were counted on our list, those of Brad and Jen would have placed second, thanks to seventh-place rankings in sales and appeal, while those of the trio–Brad, Jen and current squeeze Angelina Jolie–would have landed fourth. Faring far worse: Brad and Angie covers, of which there were nine, would have placed 26th. The couple, commonly dubbed Brangelina, had mixed results at the newsstands, earning a disappointing 44th in the cover sales category.”

    If anyone wants the real report, uncensored by Jared, go to Forbes and read it. It’s an eye opener.

  • what is it that she has?

    Pitty party has stopped long ago. It is not because of that, but there is something else about her that gets people all fuzzied up ang gravitate towards her. Could it be that may be like Brad Pitt says she is the most genuine and warmest person, or as Vince said that she had this magic Elvis touch, or as Jake G. put it..everybody loves Jennifer?

  • Chris

    Oh come on now, enough with chinister !!!She is beyond ugly

  • It’s Britney, b*tch

    Haters..think before you speak or write..THINK about the fact that young people get affected by comments like Skelator/Skeletor or Maniston, especially young girls. I doubt that Angelina is the only woman on earth suffering from weight-loss caused by grief and stress…and I doubt that Jennifer is the only woman in the world with a “large” chin…THINK about the fact that you are indirectly insulting every person on earth with similar features or problems!
    THINK about the fact that your comments might make young people feel that they’re ugly and need plastic surgery..

    THINK FOR ONES IN YOUR LIVES!

  • jackjack

    YOU’VE GOT TO BE FCUKING KIDDING ME RIGHT??!!!!!!!!!!!! that jackas s is #1 ohhhhhhhhh plzzz

  • It’s me, Bill

    Forbes is officially a tabloid now.

    Fag Face Maniston EXISTS ONLY IN TABLOIDS ANYWAYS.

    That is the ONLY place Huvaniston can land.
    Should me more often, however, to make this BS a little more believable.

    I am a CHEERLEADER FOR MANISTON AND STUPITT TO GRACE THEIR COVERS FOREVER: A DIMWIT MEETS A FELLOW DIMWIT.
    That way Pitt will not feel inadequate anymore.

  • oh

    You know why because Brangelina fans stops buying trash tabloids. We don’t support tabloids that lies about their write ups. They are being paid by Huvane & Brangelina don’t do that pay off, they believe in the truth & so do fans. As long as the tabloids don’t tell the truth about what they are wrting about, we are not supporting them. They continue to bash Brangelina which is not really fair. Plus. The X is fake.

    It certainly is an eye opener. I read it. I’m very pleased for Brad, Angelina and Jennifer.

  • before you start bashing

    She does not court publicity like many other stars do. She tries to live a private life. Just because she wears two piece swimming suits on her vacations is not couting paps. She has the figure for it. Why wouldn’t she? She is 38. She is not dead. She is entitled to happiness. Leave her alone. Brad and Angelina are very happy. They have each other. Love them. Celebrate them, but leave Jennifer alone.

  • oh

    PS, tabloids are one sided, being paid by Huvane & The X. She bought being the #1 cover Girl. That’s BS.

    Long live the Queen of Tabloids. May she grace the covers of Outta Touch, Lies and Style, National Enquirer, US Weakly and Star Magazine forever more.

  • Corleone

    Hahahahaha the Angelina fans are so jealous right now. You can SO tell the difference between simple hate comments and jealous as hell comments, this time is the latter.

    Not that they aren’t jealous ALL the time though. I find it so amusing how they always have time for Jenny. :’)

  • toodles

    wow, what a bunch of knucckleheads congratulating Jen for having the most tabloid covers.. She must be so proud…People just love writing trash and reading trash about the girl and her fans congratulate her.. thats one sick bunch…

    Well since she has not really done anything of any significance and really has not given any award worthy performances and have not troubled countries.. I guess being the queen of tabloid covers is as good as it gets for her…

    Poor Jen.. she can never crawl out from under that rock can she?

    I mean the girl doesn’t even attend the events fundraisers for any of her listed charities… so what exactly has she done?

  • wohoo for Brad & angiE

    Thanks to the power that be that the Jolie-Pitts are no longer tabloids number 1.

    It can only means one thing – more Jen on the cover until she marries and have kids – because you just know THIS IS THE HAPPY ENDING THAT THE TABLOIDS ARE LOOKING FOR. And until it happens…expect more *we feel for you Jen*.

    Pitt and Jolie already have the happy ending. There is no more to write than marriage, more kids and living happily ever after. The break up stories are winding down because let face it…even tabloid writers knows that by the minute they send the weeklies to the press…Brad and Angelina are still together. Poor folks, must be quite frustrating :lol: :lol:

    Problem is, will Jen go this route and have the man and the babies or will the tabloids drop her if she doesn’t follow through with THEIR plan for her?

    Methinks, someone has dug herself a BIG HOLE that is now determined by the yellow press and she CAN’T GET OUT IT…or else her IMAGE GOES DOWN with her. From one on, Jennifer Aniston need to live life according to the press – yellow press – oy!

    Sucks to be Jennifer Aniston.

    :lol: :lol:

    aniston fans are tabloid worshipping ignoramuses. they read tabloid trash like they are facts. so no surprise here.

    **************************************************

    Interesting, but it doesn’t make sense. If Brad and Angelina don’t sell, then why am I seeing them on the cover of every single tabloid week after week after week? It’s getting beyond ridiculous. The only thing the tabs care about is their bottom line, just like any other publication; so why would they keep putting them on the cover if they didn’t sell? And lately, when Aniston does make the cover of a tabloid, it’s always connected to some negative story about why she can’t get a man. Is this really what people want to read?

    However, I’d be delighted if I never saw Brad and Angelina on the cover of another tabloid. Then maybe people would leave them alone and they would be able to raise their children in peace and quiet. They have no need of tabloids. Aniston, on the other hand, has no existence to speak of outside the tabloids. So if they want to feature her every week, 52 weeks a year, I’m fine with it. I never buy the tabs anyway so it makes no difference to me who they put on their cover.

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    Not trying to be rude but..read the comment out loud to yourself and listen to how ridiculous you sound.

  • toodles

    I am pretty sure Jen is looking at this article being mortified that she has been crowned queen of the tabloids… she took the crown away from pyscho brit, Loser Lindsey and popsicle paris.. she must be in seventh heaven text messaging all her friends..(that was me being sarcastic)

    Looks like the tabloids already know the story of the triage is waning so they cooked up this ridiculous title for her..

    No matter what Jen does the tabloids will never let her come out of Brads shadow…

    This is the man reason she cant have a life…tabloids are busy making one up for her… now they are busy talking about her tryst with orlando bloom. Orlando bloom himself said the story is totally false..

  • sup.

    I guess the face of pitty sells…

    LOL.

  • dante

    wow… that fact changed my life completely…

    if Britney doesn’t sell mags, then why do these jackasses keep on putting her on their covers?

  • wohoo for Brad & angiE

    the gist of my post is that the end result of the last 2 years is that Jennifer Aniston’s image will now and forever be controlled by what is on the tabloid cover.

    She can’t escape it.

    Oh boy…someone has dug herself a hole and like they always say…sometimes people reach a stage in their lives when they want to do things their way…in her case..she really can’t do that anymore because her image has already been determined by the tabloids and it is to stay as is.

  • hey

    TAB HOE JEN
    Faux Nose and colored contacts. Not a true blonde with blue eyes.

    They just want to see if she is going to be whinning about Brad Pitt. She does get the pity party vote

  • proof

    20 It’s Britney, b*tch

    the only person i see name-calling here is u.

  • toodles

    You see the point I was making as theses were the previous queens that had the title

    Paris Hilton-did jail time and is now a hasbeen
    Nicole Ritchie-got knocked up and is rehabbing from drugs
    Lindsey lohan-is seeking rehab to avoid jailtime and has her career in the toilet
    Britney Spear- Lost custody of her kids, might do jail time ..is being sued..and of course needs to be commited.

    So Ms. Jen if your going to have the title remember what happened to the previous queens.. You see the paps will now relentlessly concentrate thier efforts on picking apart your whole life till there is nothing left of you.. I hope you can handle it.

  • ALEXALEX

    why is this one idiot obsessed with colored contacts? who gives a crap, it’s no different than wearing makeup.
    Jolie has highlight in her hair, wears false eyelashes and hair extensions. You are really reaching if this is all you can find to complain about someone.

  • FORBES LOVES JENMAN

    THEY INSULTED BRITNEY TOO..THE IDIOTS!!FORBES IS A FREAK!!!

  • wohoo for Brad & angiE

    frankly this is not good for a woman going into her 40s who wants to be known for her work as an actress but is respected by the the yellow press. How is that going to help her be treated seriously in the town that she is in.

    Anyways, let hope more paps follow Jennifer and take her pictures so that she is more in the yellow press.
