Poor Jennifer Aniston. She just can't seem to get out of the shadow of her romantic rival, Angelina Jolie.
Recently, Forbes magazine ranked her as the 8th most powerful celebrity. Not bad, right? But then the magazine ranked Angelina #1 (to make matters worse, Forbes said Angelina also edged Jennifer in earnings in the past year–$27 million vs. $25 million).
Now comes a new poll that pits (okay, bad choice of verbs) Jennifer vs. Angelina in a popularity contest. In the survey, conducted by E-Poll for WEtv network, almost 900 women between the ages of 18-49 were asked who they liked most between Angelina, Jennifer, Paris Hilton, Natalie Portman and Diane Sawyer.
Angelina came in first with 49 percent. Jennifer ranked second at 36-percent. At least she beat Paris (6 percent).
Angie beats Jen in another poll released by Heat magazine (never heard of that 'zine). This one reportedly asked fans (presumably female) whose body they envied most. Angelina came in fifth, Jennifer sixth. "Transformers" hottie Megan Fox took the top spot.
At least Aniston can take solace in this: Forbes ranked her above ex-husband Brad Pitt on its power list. He came in at #9, just behind Jen.
