Hollywood actress Julia Roberts has been named as “People’s 2017 World’s Most Beautiful Woman.” Among those chosen every year, Roberts has been appointed as the most beautiful woman for the fifth time, followed by her first time in 1991 to 2000, 2005, and 2010.

At an interview for the special edition of People soon to be distributed on Friday, Roberts joked that “I am very flattered,” and added that “I’m going to mention that in my Christmas card to the Clooneys this year.” Her joke seemed to imply that she easily beat Hollywood famous actor and People’s two-time “Sexiest Man Alive” winner George Clooney.

All eyes around the world were on her when she took her first leading role in the romantic comedy “Pretty Woman” in 1990. A later, People named her the “People’s 2017 World’s Most Beautiful Woman.” Later on, she was the darling of movie fans, starring in films including “Notting Hill” and “Ocean’s Eleven.”

Roberts has been continuing her marriage with cinematographer Danny Moder for 14 years now. During the interview with People, she showed off her professional career philosophy that “I’m doing my best to live an ageless life with my children. I think the best is yet to come. I think I’m currently peaking.”
