'People' Names Sandra Bullock, 50, World's Most Beautiful Woman

Sandra Bullock is at the top of <em>People</em> magazine's World's Most Beautiful list for 2015.

Actress Sandra Bullock tops People magazine's World's Most Beautiful list for 2015, becoming the oldest person to do so in the list's 25-year history. Three-time winner Julia Roberts was 42 when she last took the top spot.

It's the first time Bullock has won the honor — but if you've been experiencing cultural déjà vu lately, you're not alone.

In recent weeks, we've learned that landmark TV shows of the 1990s (The X Files, Coach and Full House) are being re-created — all amid national discussions over police use of force (see: Rodney King, 1992) and a Bush-Clinton political showdown.

There's also talk of a Spice Girls reunion — and Fargo, the 1996 movie, is now a TV show.

People says its special "Most Beautiful" issue, with Bullock on the cover, will come out later this week. In it, Bullock shares what she thinks about beauty, and raising her son, 5.

"Real beauty is quiet. Especially in this town, it's just so hard not to say, 'Oh, I need to look like that,' " Bullock tells the magazine. "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."
