Julia Roberts is the most beautiful person in the world



Tbd-juliaroberts042910 While People dropped our jaws with Sandra Bullock Day, let's not forget Julia Roberts, who got bumped off the lead cover image even though she's been named the mag's Most Beautiful Person. Because when we think of the most beautiful person in the world, we imagine a 42-year-old actress who has developed quite the reputation as being a nasty neighbor and a diva on the set.

Senior editor Galina Espinoza made the announcement on Wednesday's Today show, marking the fourth time Roberts has won the honor in her 12 appearances on the annual list. Halle Berry has been on the list 14 times, keep in mind. Are we the only ones who think Julia vacillates between plastic kewpie doll and bridge troll? Pretty Woman was 20 years ago, guys.

How does Julia do it? By enjoying her life in Taos, N.M., with her husband, Danny Moder, and their three kids. Oh, and the acting and Lancome contract don't hurt.

“Looking at my family is like a deep, cleansing breath,” she told People. “I am very blessed, and I try to show my gratitude each day. When I do get stressed out, my husband is a great help — he is incredibly funny, and laughter is the best remedy for stress.”
