The movie actress and former "Friends" star tops Raquel Welch, Marilyn Monroe and Britney Spears for the honor.

Jennifer Aniston has been named the sexiest woman of all-time -- at least according to Men's Health magazine.

With a top five consisting of Raquel Welch, Marilyn Monroe, Madonna and Britney Spears, Aniston trumped them all and the reasoning was simple: "Funny is sexy and Jennifer Aniston is funny -- she was invited to join Saturday Night Live before her big break with Friends."

It's been an eventful year for Aniston, who had box office success with Horrible Bosses, but Aniston said that her pick for sexiest woman is a tie between Bridgette Bardot and Gloria Steinem.

"But if I had to choose one, I'd say Gloria because, well, she's the full package," Aniston said. "That's sexy."

When asked which of the characters she's played was the least sexy, Aniston went back a few decades. "The least sexy character was Jeannie Bueller on the TV version of Ferris Bueller's Day Off," she said.

Rounding out the top 10 on the sexiest list are Pamela Anderson, Bettie Page, Ursula Andress, Jane Fonda and Angelina Jolie.
