I was a goth, says former `Friends` star Jennifer Aniston

London: Former `Friends` star Jennifer Aniston says she was not always the most beautiful girl and was so self-conscious as a teenager she hid behind makeup as a "goth".

The 42-year-old actress, who was recently crowned the Hottest Woman of All Time in a new poll by Men`s Health magazine, has said she was so put off by her mother Nancy`s superficial beauty obsession, Daily Star reported.

"I was a dumpy teenager. My mum was a model and was all about looks, so I rebelled by going goth. It took me years of peeling back the onion to finally stop using make-up as a mask and feel comfortable in my skin," she said.
