Julia Roberts has been chosen as PEOPLE's World's Most Beautiful Woman in 2017. It is the fifth time, the "Pretty Woman" actress won the title. She first graced the cover of the magazine as the World's Most Beautiful Woman back in 1991, then in 2000, 2005 and 2010.
Julia can hardly believe that she won the title for the record fifth time. "I am very flattered," she tells PEOPLE's editor-in-chief Jess Cagle. The "Mother's Day" actress is now way ahead of pal George Clooney, who was named PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive twice. She jokes, "I'm going to mention that in my Christmas card to the Clooneys this year."
Julia says she had no idea how much her life had changed since "Pretty Woman". "People say, 'Oh, when Pretty Woman came out it must have really changed your life,' and it's kind of become this joke, but the truth is I was out of town when Pretty Woman came out," she shares.
"I was in another movie in this tiny little town that was showing Star Wars in its first run," she continues, "I remember reading ...'Pretty Woman came out this weekend and made this much money' and I thought, 'Is that a lot of money? Is that good? Is that great?' I didn't really know."
Julia thinks the best is yet to come. "I think I'm currently peaking," she adds.
