Angelina Jolie bested beauties including Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez as PEOPLE.com readers' choice for Most Beautiful Woman. Part of the allure of the 29-year-old actress and U.N. goodwill ambassador is her down-to-earth persona. "She doesn't act like a Hollywood star," says a local resident who lives near Jolie in Buckinghamshire, England. "Other than the fact that she is very beautiful, you really won't pay her much notice."
