Julia Roberts is PEOPLE's Most Beautiful Woman of 2017


Julia Roberts is People magazine's world's most lovely woman.

Julia Roberts has been named People's Most Beautiful woman of 2017.

At the time she felt "adorable and naïve and so happy to be invited to the party", but looking back, wonders if she deserved People's top honor. "I guess the one that gets the most commentary is probably my look for the Oscars for Erin Brockovich", she says.

To see the full interview, watch People Cover Story: World's Most Beautiful-Julia Roberts, streaming now on the People/Entertainment Weekly Network.

The 49-year-old Oscar victor is gracing the cover of the publication's annual issue for a record fifth time. The film was ultimately essential for Roberts, though, showing audiences that while she was indeed a pretty woman, she was also a whole lot more.

The actress - who is married to cinematographer Danny Moder - also graced the covers in 1999, 2005 and 2010.

Or, more accurately, 1998 was the last time a man topped the "most beautiful" list - Leonardo DiCaprio, at peak post-Titanic beauty.

Julia Roberts is officially lovely, in case there was any doubt.

The director added that "she is better looking now than she ever has been". "I did it. I shot them, ' Dyer said Muhammad told officers". Some said Roberts hadn't been working enough recently to gain the honor (she is now busy raising three children).

Everyone's favorite Pretty Woman just snagged another beauty title. "Is that good? Is that great?' I didn't really know", she explained.
