Sandra Bullock Is 'People's Most Beautiful Woman' -- Thanks to Her Son ​

Of all the people People magazine could pick as the "World's Most Beautiful Woman" for 2015, we're so happy they chose Sandra Bullock. Plus you've gotta love whom she credits for her radiant looks: no, not her hairstylist or her personal trainer, but her 5-year-old son, Louis.

"Real beauty is quiet," Sandra said in her People interview. "Especially in this town, it's just so hard not to say, 'Oh, I need to look like that.' No, be a good person, be a good mom, do a good job with the lunch, let someone cut in front of you who looks like they're in a bigger hurry. The people I find most beautiful are the ones who aren't trying."

Amen to that! Given moms often get bashed for looking "frumpy," it's refreshing to hear someone say otherwise.

And I have to agree: Motherhood gives women a grace and beauty that they often don't have beforehand. I think it's because moms become much less self-conscious about their looks -- after all, they've got more important things to worry about, like raising a kind, decent kid. But ironically this this makes moms seem unself-conscious and yes, even beautiful.

Sure, moms may not always have time to get all glammed up, but the inner calm and confidence women get from motherhood is a deeper kind of beauty. Remember that, mamas!

Do you think motherhood made you more beautiful?
