    Ridiculous, says Bullock of winning most-beautiful title


    OSCAR-WINNING actress Sandra Bullock was named the world's most beautiful woman this year by People magazine on Wednesday - and she laughed when she heard about the honour.

    "No, really. I just said, 'That's ridiculous,' " she told the magazine.

    Bullock, 50, who won a best actress Academy Award in 2010 for her role in The Blind Side, said she found beauty in her role as mother to her five-year-old son, Louis.

    "Real beauty is quiet. Especially in this town, it's just so hard not to say, 'Oh, I need to look like that,' " she said of Los Angeles. "The people I find most beautiful are the ones who aren't trying."

    Bullock also credits her healthy diet, including green juice, and working out up to five times a week for helping to keep her grounded and balanced.

    But it is her son who gives her the most joy.

    When Louis asked her why she had wrinkles, Bullock told him some of the lines on her face were from laughing so much. "You're not old, you're just happy," she quoted him as replying.

    Bullock follows other Hollywood stars such as Lupita Nyong'o, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez and Julia Roberts, who have received the honour in previous editions of the magazine's annual beautiful people issue.

    Bullock will be providing the voice of a supervillain in the upcoming 3D computer-animated comedy film Minions.
