Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts is more than just a Pretty Woman, the title role in her breakout movie. People magazine has named the 49-year-old star the "World's Most Beautiful Woman" for a record-setting fifth time. 

Roberts graced the cover of the "Most Beautiful" issue of People in 1991 when she was just 23, and then made the cover again in 2000, 2005, 2010 and now 2017.

“I am very flattered,” Roberts told People, adding that the new honor gives her bragging rights over her buddy and Ocean's Eleven co-star George Clooney, who has only been named the magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" twice.  “I’m going to mention that in my Christmas card to the Clooneys this year.”

Now, over two decades older since she first received the title, Roberts, who is happily married to her cinematographer husband Danny Moder and is mom to three children, told the magazine life is good: “I think I’m currently peaking.”
