People magazine has named singer, dancer, actress, mom, model and current “American Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez as the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman.” Lopez says he felt “happy and proud” after the initial shock wore off from landing the coveted 22nd annual title. The 41-year-old also added that she feels better and “smarter” now than she did in her 20s. Lopez beat out the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner and Eva Longoria. Jenny from the Block, whose current single “On the Floor” is No. 8 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart this week, is married to singer Marc Anthony and has twins with him. Her upcoming album, “Love?” will be out in May. She also recently debuted a reworking of the classic “Venus” song in Gillette razor commercials and has earned the title of “Venus Global Ambassador.” Other women who made People’s list:

On the men’s side, Zac Efron took top honors. The 23-year-old took first place thanks to his abs, pecs and chest. Behind him were “Twilight” hottie Kellan Lutz and newly single Ryan Reynolds, People’s sexiest man alive. This year’s Most Beautiful issue hits newsstands Friday.
