*People magazine has crowned Jennifer Lopez the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” in a special double issue on newsstands this week.

The singer, actress and “American Idol” judge beats out fellow celebs on the list Halle Berry, Beyonce Knowles and Jennifer Garner.

Commenting on her title, the 41-year-old Lopez says, “I feel happy and proud. Proud that I’m not 25!”

From her skincare regimen to her grueling workouts and portion-controlled diet, Lopez says she makes a concerted effort to stay in top form. “The thing is, it’s part of my job,” says the singer, who ran a triathalon six months after she gave birth. “I don’t want anybody thinking it’s easy. It does take time and it’s hard work. HDTV wide-screen is nobody’s friend!”
