Sandra Bullock crowned World’s Most Beautiful Woman thanks to People

People magazine have awarded Minions actress Sandra Bullock as the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” for 2015 and we reckon she’s definitely worthy of the title.

But despite receiving the honour, the 50-year-old (yes, we can’t get our heads around that either) isn’t letting the crown go to her head and laughs at the label. In fact, she made it her mission not to tell anyone when she heard the news.

“No, really. I just said, ‘That’s ridiculous,’” she told PEOPLE. “I’ve told no one.” Plenty will hear about her new merit now though as the Hollywood starlet graces the mag’s cover in a stunning shot that would have us struggle to believe she’s even 40, let alone 50!

The down-to-earth star claims that she’s actually at her most beautiful when mothering her 5-year-old son, Louis, and that their life together reminds her of what’s really important.

“Real beauty is quiet. Especially in this town, it’s just so hard not to say, ‘Oh, I need to look like that,'” she explains. “No, be a good person, be a good mom, do a good job with the lunch, let someone cut in front of you who looks like they’re in a bigger hurry. The people I find most beautiful are the ones who aren’t trying.”

The Oscar-winning actress might have starred in over 40 movies throughout her lengthy career, but nowadays she says her life is all about taking her son on play dates, school runs, and engaging in “deep” conversations with the youngster, who recently told her “why he was going to marry his girlfriend.”

Though don’t expect to hear wedding bells anytime soon. “But then we were having Sunday dinner, and he said he changed his mind,” Sandra added. ” I just told him, ‘Always love those who want to love you back and are nice to you.’ Then we moved back to Legos and ‘Why are you making me eat broccoli?’” Deep indeed.
