Sandra Bullock Is People's Choice For The 2015 Most Beautiful Woman In The World

By Shannon Carlin,

People announced this morning (April 22) that Bullock is the cover star of this year's World's Most Beautiful Woman issue.

According to People, she didn't just win because she's beautiful on the outside, it's because she's beautiful on the inside.

Bullock apparently was so shocked about the honor, she had trouble really believing it. Even admitting she laughed when she first heard. "I just said, 'That's ridiculous,' I've told no one."

But, she did give her definition of what beautiful is. "Real beauty is quiet. Especially in this town, it's just so hard not to say, 'Oh, I need to look like that,'" she says "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."

Bullock said her life revolves around her little boy Louis, doing very non-glamorous things like driving the carpool and setting up play dates. But, he's not wrapped around her little finger as she explains. "We have rules," she says. "I let everyone else be the aunties and uncles who spoil him and I'm the one that lays down the law."

She also says that he doesn't even know how famous she really is, which is pretty cool. "He thought I was an astronaut for a while," she explains. "I want it to be so inconsequential and such a nonissue. I want him to be embarrassed by me like all other parents."
