Los Angeles: Pop diva Jennifer Lopez has beaten off competition from younger beauties like Beyonce Knowles and Anne Hathaway to be named the world`s most beautiful woman by People magazine.

The 41-year-old singer-actress said that she was ‘honoured’ by the title and proud that she has won it at her age, reported People online.

"I feel happy and proud. Proud that I`m not 25," said the mother-of-two.

Lopez, who is a judge on `American Idol`, said that she felt her best while at home with her family of husband Marc Anthony and 3-year-old twins Max and Emme.

"Just being able to touch my face and rub my eyes and put my fingers in my hair and not having to worry about messing it up. It`s so much better," said Lopez.

The Bronx native has built a tremendous empire since appearing as an extra in the 90`s comedy show `In Living Colour`. As well as her albums and films she has expanded her brand into fragrances, clothing line and her own production company.

Lopez is joined on the honour roll by Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner, Sandra Bullock, Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Hudson among others.

The men in the Most Beautiful list include Zac Efron, Kellan Lutz, Ryan Reynolds and Johnny Depp.
