People magazine has named Sandra Bullock, a familiar face to New Orleans, as the "World's Most Beautiful Woman" for 2015.

The 50-year-old actress, who voices a supervillain in the upcoming movie "Minions," tops the magazine's list, announced Wednesday.

Commenting on being selected for this year's cover, Bullock says she just laughed when she heard about the honor. "No, really. I just said, 'That's ridiculous,'" she tells the magazine. "I've told no one."

Bullock has become a fixture in New Orleans. She's a huge booster of Warren Easton Charter High School, donating money to the school and even making a surprise commencement speech there in 2014.

In 2010, Bullock adopted her now-five-year-old son, Louis, from New Orleans.

"Without the spirit of the people who live there and take care of the city and honor its traditions, its love for music, its love for life, take those people out and you don't have why I love New Orleans so much, Bullock told People in 2010.
