Sandra Bullock has been beloved by audiences for decades, but only now has the 50-year-old actress been named the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” by People magazine.
The Oscar-winning actress’s first response to the news was to laugh.
“No, really,” she told the magazine during her photo shoot for the special issue. “I just said, ‘That’s ridiculous.’ I’ve told no one.”
Bullock was recognized as “Woman of the Year” by the publication in 2010, and has been featured inside the annual “Beautiful” issue before, but this is the first time she’s landed the cover. Ironically, the honor comes one day after her 1995 romantic comedy While You Were Sleeping — which solidified her rep as America’s Sweetheart — celebrated its 20th anniversary.
