People’s Latest ‘Most Beautiful Woman’ is 50

Sandra Bullock rocks it at the half-century mark.

PeopleSandraBullockCoverOr… Two decades past People magazine’s most recent other good looks title holders, Chris Hemsworth (31) and Lupita Nyong’o (32). And for that, we should all be celebrating.

While Sandra Bullock being anointed the latest recipient of a goofy annual magazine honor is not exactly the equivalent of Thor’s hammer being taken to the age of preturnatural magazine covers, it’s still an encouraging sign. Bullock has reacted with her trademark sense of humor:

Bullock insists she just laughed when she heard about the honor. “No, really. I just said, ‘That’s ridiculous,’ ” she tells People. “I’ve told no one.”

In one of the sidebars, People notes that this week marks the 20th anniversary of Bullock’s first big romantic comedy hit, While You Were Sleeping. Bullock turns 51 in July.
