The 29-year-old actress insists she doesn’t pay much attention to her looks and would rather spend time with her four-year-old son Ryder than treat herself to a manicure.

She said: “I even got to the point where I started waxing my own legs because I don’t have the time. I’d rather be home with Ryder sitting there waxing my legs. I haven’t gotten a facial in a million years. I don’t do those kinds of things. And when I do, I always think, ‘I should do this more often.'”

Jessica Alba – who is featured in the issue with her fiance Cash Warren – revealed expecting her first child has made her feel like a teenager again.

She said: “Pregnancy is the most beautiful thing that can happen to you. I have a glow. Everything in my face is puffed up. I have the face of a teenager! I feel like I’m 16 again.”

Other stars to make the list are Eva Longoria and her husband Tony Parker, Mary J. Blige, Salma Hayek, Christina Applegate, Julianne Moore, Isla Fisher and the cast of hit US TV show Gossip Girl.

The full list of People magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful People will appear in the next issue of the publication on Friday (02.05.08).
