Jennifer Lopez is People magazine's Most Beautiful Woman, but she also may be one of the most humble.

"It's so crazy. Rarely am I left speechless, but I feel honored," she told the mag. "I feel not worthy, you know? I feel happy and proud. Proud that I'm not 25!"

At 41, Lopez is in the midst of a career resurgence, largely thanks to her new role as an "American Idol" judge and the success of her hit songs from her upcoming album, "Love?"

Lopez has been showing off her remarkable looks through it all, but that comes as no surprise. She was included in People's annual Most Beautiful issue, now in its 22nd year, 10 times before taking 2011's top honor.

 The jill of all trades, who has also dabbled in acting, attributes her radiance to the "love in my life" – husband Marc Anthony and 3-year-old twins Emme and Max – since "real beauty comes from your heart."

Lopez also believes the women of her generation, including Julia Roberts, Halle Berry and Jennifer Aniston, are "redefining what it is to be a woman who is not in her 20s anymore but is still very viable, sexy and important."

"We have a lot to offer," Lopez said. "And people are starting to realize the beauty in that."

At home, however, the performer goes makeup-free.

"That's when I'm my happiest," she explained. "Just being able to touch my face and rub my eyes and put my fingers in my hair and not having to worry about messing it up. It's so much better."

 But there's no escaping the need to exercise.

"The thing is, it's part of my job," Lopez said. "I don't want anybody thinking it's easy. It does take time and it's hard work. HDTV wide-screen is nobody's friend!"

Still, she knows she's "lucky to be an attractive person" and doesn't mind being labeled a "diva."

"I kind of like it. We've kind of owned it now," she said. "But I certainly don't like, and I've never been a person who has what they call ‘diva behavior,' which is something they tried to pin on me for a long time."
