People Magazine's Most Beautiful Unveiled

After a difficult and public battle with breast cancer, Christina Applegate is feeling reinvigorated, both inside and out, she tells People. Gracing the magazine's 2009 "Most Beautiful" issue, the 37-year-old actress opens up in her first interview since undergoing reconstructive breast surgery last November.
The Samantha Who? star says she's finding balance and embracing her body after undergoing a double mastectomy in July, followed by reconstructive breast surgery in November. "You have to get through the physical transformations then buck up, go to work and try to be the normal, happy Christina for everyone around you," she says.

She has an "angel" of a boyfriend, Dutch bass player Martyn Lenoble, "who loves me from head to toe." She has a cozy Malibu beach house that she calls "the best thing I've ever done for myself." And, after a very public battle with breast cancer that has given her a gratifying "feeling of purpose," Christina Applegate has a new lease on life.
"I used to be really shy but I started to come into my own in my late 20s and early 30s," Applegate, 37, tells PEOPLE in the cover interview for the annual Most Beautiful issue. "Now I'm not afraid to speak up in a room full of people and be a part of the conversation."

One source of strength has been Lenoble. "He's been a friend for about 13 years," Applegate says. "Our relationship gets stronger and stronger. I'm really lucky." And, more importantly, he makes the actress feel "beautiful" about her new body."I'm very grateful to Martyn for coming along at a time that he did because he's been my rock through all of this," Applegate says. "He gave me something to really want to live for and something to smile about."

Others stars to make the grade this year in People's Most Beautiful - Halle Berry, Zac Efron, Angelina Jolie, Kristen Wiig (SNL fame), Taylor Swift, Robert Pattinson, Michelle Obama and others.
