LOS ANGELES – Actor Sandra Bullock, 50, has been named the world’s most beautiful woman for 2015 by People magazine.
The magazine, in an article published Wednesday, bestowed on her the honor, previously held by Lupita Nyong’o, Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyonce.
The Oscar winner for ‘The Blind Side’ (2009) said she found the honor “ridiculous” and that it made her laugh, though she posed for the next edition of People to hit stands Friday with her face on the cover.
Bullock said that she found true beauty as a mother, to her five-year-old son Louis, adding that the most beautiful do not have try to be beautiful.
“Real beauty is quiet. Especially in this town, it’s just so hard not to say, ‘Oh, I need to look like that,’” said the protagonist of the ‘Miss Congeniality’ films.
Every year People prepares lists of good looking people, men and women, mainly celebrities from the entertainment industry in the United States.
This year, the top 10 includes the transsexual Laverne Cox (‘Orange is the New Black’), 19-year-old model Gigi Hadid and actress Taraji P. Henson (‘Empire’).
