Julia Roberts named People's 'World's Most Beautiful Woman' -- again!

Pretty woman indeed!

Julia Roberts, for a record fifth time, is the Most Beautiful Woman in the World.

"I am very flattered," the 49-year-old star told People's editor-in-chief Jess Cagle.

The actress was just 23 when she first appeared on the cover of the World's Most Beautiful issue in 1991. A year before, she became a household name after starring in "Pretty Woman" alongside Richard Gere.

She then found herself on the list again in 2000, 2005 and 2010 -- and now 2017!

Her record-breaking feat also means she's now way ahead of good pal George Clooney, who has been People's Sexiest Man Alive only twice.

"I'm going to mention that in my Christmas card to the Clooneys this year," she hilariously joked.

And though she's stayed out of the spotlight as of late, starring in the occasional film like "Mother's Day" or "Money Monster," Julia believes the best is yet to come: "I'm currently peaking."

Julia has quite an accomplished career -- which includes winning Best Actress at the 1989 Academy Awards for her role in "Erin Brockovich." In the 1990s, she was one of the highest-paid actresses in the world.

Her cover story explores her marriage of 14 years to cinematographer Danny Moder and life with their three children -- twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 12, and son Henry, 9.

Carrie Underwood, Mandy Moore, Viola Davis, Emma Watson and Taraji P. Henson were some of the other gorgeous ladies who landed on this year's list.
