Being crowned the Most Beautiful Woman of 2015 by People magazine is an accolade that probably comes with its fair share of praises and expectations.
But Sandra Bullock wasn’t too worried about any backlash or pressure she might’ve faced from covering the issue — because she had much bigger plans for the so-called “prestigious honor.”
In an interview with E! News for her new animated movie “Minions,” Bullock admitted she accepted the cover, in part, to use it as a platform for praising other women’s beauty.
“You’d be surprised at the love that you have in our crazy industry,” Bullock said. “The women have bonded together and have sort of become this tribe of trying to take care of each other and be there for each other in a way, because the minute you step out it’s an onslaught. And I laughed when [People] said they’re gonna be generous and bestow me this wonderful privilege, but I said if I can talk about the amazing women who I find beautiful, which are these women who rise above and take care of business and do wonderful things, and take care of each other, then I’m more than honored to be on the cover of this.”
