People has named Sandra Bullock the world’s most beautiful woman for 2015, the magazine announced on NBC's 'Today' show. Gracing the magazine's May cover, the 50 year old actress said she thought “that's ridiculous” upon hearing of the honour, adding that she’d so far told no one.

Sandra BullockSandra Bullock is People’s most beautiful woman for 2015.

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

The Oscar winner has stayed out of the spotlight in recent months but will soon be heard in the upcoming Minions, where she voices the villainous Scarlet Overkill. However most of Sandra’s time these days is taken up by her five year old son Louis, who was adopted by the actress in 2010.

Bullock told the mag she enjoys having ‘deep’ conversations with her son, including listening to him tell her why he was going to marry his girlfriend. "But then we were having Sunday dinner, and he said he changed his mind. I just told him, 'Always love those who want to love you back and are nice to you.' Then we moved back to Legos and 'Why are you making me eat broccoli?' "

But despite being named People’s Most Beautiful Woman, for Sandra the biggest compliments she gets come from little Louis, "I was putting him to bed and told him that even when I'm old and gray and more wrinkly than I am now, I'll still love him and want to tuck him in," the actress said.

"And he asked why I have wrinkles, and 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.' " Last year Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o topped the magazine’s annual list, while previous winners include Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Michelle Pfeiffer and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
