editor’s letter

Meet Our People of the Year This week we’re sending you an extra gift for the holidays: For the first time ever we are giving you four different covers in one issue. Our People of the Year issue celebrates the stars who have made an impact on our culture, the individuals who have moved us and entertained us. We wanted to see if we could soak up a little of their wisdom. When we sat down to look at who we thought deserved this honor, I wasn’t surprised that we ended up with an all-female foursome—this year has been dominated by strong women. Jennifer Aniston summed up that zeitgeist on The Morning Show—which she coproduced for Apple TV+—in the pivotal boardroom scene, when she told a roomful of men, “You don’t have…

When Hoda Kotb and her boyfriend, financier Joel Schiffman, jetted off for a quick two-day vacation in Mexico, getting engaged was the last thing on Kotb’s mind. “It’s not like we had never talked about it—because we have two children, and we’re grown-ups—but that was maybe a year ago, and I forgot about it,” the Today cohost, 55, tells People. With her busy schedule and Schiffman, 61, with a new job, “we had both been running around a lot, so we put it on the calendar to take a trip, just the two of us.” On Nov. 23 the couple were finishing a romantic dinner on the beach when “the next thing I know he pulls the chair out and gets down on his knee,” says Kotb. “We were both…

did justin timberlake get too flirty?

But a source says Timberlake’s wife, Jessica Biel, 37, has nothing to worry about. “The video may look a way, but literally it was nothing,” the source says of the video, in which the singer, who appeared to be tipsy, seemingly held Wainwright’s hand. “It was completely innocent.” A rep for Wainwright also shot down speculation: “They are currently working on a project together. Members of the cast and crew were all together.”…
