Would You Rather Have Jennifer Aniston's Body or $1 Million

Would You Rather Have Hard Cash or Hard Abs?

When women were asked if they'd rather have Jennifer Aniston's physique or be a millionaire, a poll conducted by Women's Day magazine and AOL Body found that 78 percent would take the cash. Professionals evaluating the results of the poll were concerned that women are valuing wealth over health, but I'd like to think they're just being savvy. I'd for sure take the money and save it for someday. What would you choose, the body or the bucks?

Of course I would take the money. I am a healthy young woman with a nice body, that money can get me out of debt!

Is the study assuming that women must have no self esteem and that is why we would choose another woman's body over our own? I would take the money.

Duh, money. I could BUY abs (in the form of a home gym and/or liiiiiiiposuction!) with the money, and still have cash left over to do with whatever I pleased.

There is a limited amount of things you can do with a good body and an infinite number of things you can do with a million dollars. Everybody starts sagging, wrinkling, and/or bloating up eventually. Money can be invested. Why Jennifer Aniston in particular? I think she's all right, but I never seriously envied her physique. And does it not occur to whoever asked this question that maybe most of us are more happy with our current body than with our current financial situation? Those 22% who picked body must already have money.

I would take the money because it would help me out greatly with college loans and graduate school loans for the next two years. And like everyone else said, this way I could get the trainers and have that body.

Money. I am putting myself through college right now and that would solve sooooo many of my problems. But, I agree. Just because someone doesn't have rock hard abs doesn't mean they aren't in shape.

If I had the money I could spend the time it takes to get the body, but the body would not get me any money (legally), so it makes perfect sense to take the money first.
