Sandra Bullock Is People’s Most Beautiful Woman, Which Is Hard To Argue With
People magazine has named their choice for World's Most Beautiful Woman, and it's Sandra Bullock. I'll admit that when I first saw the news this morning I was a little confused, considering we haven't really heard much from Sandra Bullock the past year. But I'm used to feeling that way about these titles. Like when Chris Hemsworth was named Sexiest Man Alive last year. I've learned that it has more to do with PR and future projects than they do with being immediately relevant.
That said, it's hard to argue with someone like Sandra Bullock receiving the title. It's like when the really nice, cool girl wins Prom Queen instead of someone like… well, Gwyneth Paltrow. (Sorry, Gwynnie, but you should have seen that coming.) Sandra's got serious BFF potential, which is always the kind of lady you want to see win these things.
Sandra is humble about receiving the title, saying it's “ridiculous.” People of course points out that Sandra is voicing a supervillain in the upcoming movie Minions before leading into her thoughts on beauty:
“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 looks like they're in a bigger hurry. The people I find most beautiful are the ones who aren't trying.”
And that's exactly why you're on the cover, Sandy.
Sandra also talks about her relationship with her son Louis, explaining that he still doesn't know what she does for a living, because she wants “it to be so inconsequential and such a nonissue,” and also for him “to be embarrassed by me like all other parents.” Aww Sandy, who could ever be embarrassed of you?
And if that's not enough, make sure to grab a tissue before you read this quote about the time Louis asked her why she has wrinkles:
“I said, ‘Well, I hope some of them are from laughing so much.' And he touched my face and said, ‘You're not old, you're just happy.'”
I'm not crying. You're crying!
