Jennifer Aniston pips Brad and Angelina to top spot on best-selling face list
SHE MAY HAVE lost out to Angelina in the love stakes, but Jennifer Aniston proved this week she’s more popular with the American public by being named the top-selling celebrity face by Forbes.com.
In the first analysis of its kind, Forbes calculated the popularity statistic on several factors, including newsstand sales of celebrity weeklies, People, Us Weekly, In Touch Weekly, Life & Style, OK! and Star, over a six-month period ending on 30 June, as supplied by the Audit Bureau of Circulations.
The website revealed the 38-year-old actress – who’s recently been linked to Orlando Bloom – graced six covers, appearing on every magazine except In Touch Weekly at least once during the time period, with her face collectively selling more than 5 million copies.
Ex-husband Brad Pitt was snapping at her heels in second place, followed by Scarlett Johansson, while love rival Angelina Jolie came in fourth.
Reese Witherspoon, Katie Holmes and Jennifer Hudson were also in the top ten. But a couple of famous faces were missed off completely: Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and Jesica Simpson failed to make the face grade. Even though Spears graced 18 covers in the time period, Forbes.com says the troubled star is not a hit with sales and is only slightly more likeable than Paris Hilton.
