Sandra Bullock for <em>People Magazine</em> Sandra Bullock for People Magazine

After a brief absence from our lives, Sandra Bullock has resurfaced to claim the honor of World's Most Beautiful Woman, according to People.

"I just said, 'That's ridiculous,'" Bullock, 50, told the magazine of the receiving the title. "I've told no one."

Bullock has kept her life fairly low-key since Gravity slayed at the Oscars in 2014. She didn't film another project for two years following the space drama until she voiced a super villain in Minions, which comes out later this year. That's because Bullock has been busy focusing on raising her five-year-old son, Louis, who is still struggling to understand his mother's unusual career.

"He thought I was an astronaut for a while," Bullock said. "I want it to be so inconsequential and such a nonissue. I want him to be embarrassed by me like all other parents."

And though being named the World's Most Beautiful Woman is a wonderful commendation, Bullock said no one's compliments make her nearly as happy as the ones from her son. "I was putting him to bed and told him that even when I'm old and gray and more wrinkly than I am now, I'll still love him and want to tuck him in," she said. "And he asked why I have wrinkles, and I said, 'Well, I hope some of them are from laughing so much.' And he touched my face and said, 'You're not old, you're just happy.' "
