If anything, motherhood has only made Julia Roberts more beautiful, say the editors of People magazine. They’ve put her on the cover of their annual 50 Most Beautiful People issue, which hits newsstands Friday, for a record third time. (People, like EW.com, is part of Time Warner.) Roberts, who became the mother of twins Hazel and Phinnaeus in November, made the list for the ninth time, a record she shares with Halle Berry, who’s also on this year’s list. ”Now that she has her babies, she has reached the peak of beauty,” Roberts’ friend and makeup artist Genevieve tells the magazine. ”She is satisfied and content. All of that shows.”

The most beautiful man and woman in the world are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, at least according to the results of People’s online poll, which the magazine says drew 500,000 voters. Just to make things awkward, the Mr. and Mrs. Smith costars — who still haven’t confirmed that they’re a couple even after photos surfaced of them sharing quality time on a beach at an exclusive Kenyan resort — share space on People’s list with Pitt’s soon-to-be-ex-wife Jennifer Aniston.

Besides Pitt and Jolie, some acknowledged couples made the list, including Heidi Klum and Seal, Jude Law and Sienna Miller, and Penélope Cruz and Matthew McConaughey. Not to mention duet pair Alicia Keys and Usher, recent Oscar winners Jamie Foxx and Hilary Swank, Finding Neverland costars Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, adulterous Desperate Housewives lovers Eva Longoria and Jesse Metcalfe, and Grey’s Anatomy costars Sandra Oh and Patrick Dempsey. Also on the list: Jennifer Lopez, Oprah Winfrey, Orlando Bloom, Jessica Alba, and Ziyi Zhang. The full list is available at People.com.
