Like former boyfriend (did you forget?) Ryan Gosling (opens in new tab), "real, radiant" Sandra Bullock is an attractiveness denier, except not so much that she'd refuse People's World's Most Beautiful title, which she officially won today.
Upon hearing the news, Bullock, 50, told People (opens in new tab) she thought it "ridiculous" and kept it to herself...until her interview, in which she explains her formula for real beauty: "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."
Previous WMB winners include Lupita Nyong'o (opens in new tab), Gwyneth Paltrow (at 40), Beyoncé, and Jennifer Lopez, and, this year, Laverne Cox (opens in new tab) is included in the magazine's "192 other breathtaking beauties." So yay diversity! We've sure come a long way from the 1990s (opens in new tab).
