Sandra Bullock Named 2015’s Most Beautiful Woman

Sandra Bullock has just been named the World’s Most Beautiful Woman of 2015 by People Magazine. But the 50-year-old actress reportedly laughed when she heard about the award.

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

Bullock also added that she has found beauty in her role as a mom to her five-year-old son and a schedule that revolves around carpools, play dates and listening to her son.

Fortunately Bullock has just completed work on a movie that she can likely take her son to see. She voices Scarlett Overkill in the new movie Minions set to release July 10. But this talented actress from Arlington, Virginia has a host of other films for families as well. She voiced the character of Miriam in the 1998 animation the Prince of Egypt.

In 2010 she won an Oscar for Best Actress for her role as the tough-minded mother Leigh Anne Tuohy in The Blind Side. She took on another mother role in the 2011 movie Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close where she plays the mother of a troubled nine-year-old who lost his father in the attack on the World Trade Center.

In 2013 Bullock took full control of the screen as Ryan Stone in the space movie Gravity where she plays the lone survivor of a debris storm that leaves her stranded in orbit. She received an Oscar nomination for that role as well.

Some of Bullock’s other movie credits include the romantic comedies While You Were Sleeping, Two Weeks Notice and The Proposal. She also starred in in the Speed movies, Hope Floats, The Net and Crash. She plays FBI agent Gracie Hart who goes undercover at a beauty pageant in Miss Congeniality and Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous, which I guess proves, she is as nice as she is pretty.
