Krysten Ritter admits that she never imagined herself in the role of a comic book superhero, but that was before she encountered Jessica Jones.
"I never in a million years fancied myself playing a superhero," the actress, who stars as the would-be superheroine–turned–gritty private eye in Marvel's Jessica Jones, tells PEOPLE. "I don't look like superheroes that we've all seen in that female form with the outfit and the boobs and the big hair – that's just not me."

PEOPLE turns 40 this year, and we have to say, it's looking pretty good for having four decades in the spotlight. Just like any other cultural institution (the White House; The Peach Pit), the magazine has made more than a few appearances in TV and movies. Let's look at some of our favorites.

Joe Jonas and his lady are flying high.
The singer, along with girlfriend Blanda Eggenschwiler, joined Richard Branson at 35,000 feet on Monday to celebrate the launch of Virgin America's new route from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.
"They were very cute together," an onlooker says of the couple. "They sat next to each other all night, and he never left her side."

Outside of Apartment 23, there seems to be no room for female dogs in Krysten Ritter's home.
The Don't Trust the B–– in Apartment 23 star recently took in a stray pup, and she's already showed off her new male companion on WhoSay.
"Calling him Buddy for the moment," the actress, 31, writes. "Going to take him to get neutered and to get his shots!"

Krysten Ritter got into the Golden Globes spirit a little early.
The Don't Trust the B---- star made her way to Nine Zero One salon in West Hollywood for some VIP hair and beauty treatment before heading to a chic pre-Globes event on Saturday.
Starting with her hair at the shop's Colgate Optic White Beauty Bar, co-sponsored by Joico, the actress opted for a "braided up-do to show off her gown that evening," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "After seeing a photo of her good friend Nina Dobrev, Krysten asked for a copycat look."
When it came time for beauty, Ritter went for something much more subtle, requesting a look that was "au naturel," the observer says.
Ritter, who the source says "was in a really good mood and excited about the night," chatted with a fellow salon-goer about surfing and snowboarding.

James Van Der Beek is sexy and he knows it – but does PEOPLE?
In anticipation of Wednesday's big Sexiest Man Alive reveal, Tuesday's Don't Trust the B–– in Apt. 23 (9:30 p.m. ET/PT on ABC) features a very eager Van Der Beek vying for the coveted title.
During the episode, the actor's pal Chloe, played by Krysten Ritter, storms into the magazine's New York City headquarters and tries to take charge and get Van Der Beek on the cover.

Krysten Ritter is happy to be a b----. She's less eager to be a bride.
The star of Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 has a good thing going with her boyfriend, the Hurt Locker and True Blood actor Brian Geraghty, and doesn't see the need to walk down the aisle anytime soon.
"I was never the little girl who dreamed about a wedding or a big white dress," Ritter, 30, tells Playboy's November issue. "I don't think I'm sour on marriage. I just don't know if I'm the type."

The premise (small-town girl starts a new life in New York City, hijinks ensue) has been done before – but it's never been this twisted.
Don't Trust the B–––– in Apt. 23, premiering Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. on ABC, features June (Dreama Walker), who moves to the Big Apple only to lose her job, her apartment and her fiancé. The naïve new girl finds a room with Chloe (yes, she's the titular B), played by Krysten Ritter, and a tenuous friendship with her best pal, James Van Der Beek, playing a smarmy, crass version of himself – to hilarious results.
