Sandra Bullock Named People Magazine’s ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’


"I've told no one"

Sandra Bullock has been named the most beautiful woman in the world by People magazine.

But the actress, 50, told People that despite her glamorous cover photo shoot, real beauty isn’t based on looks.

“Real beauty is quiet. Especially in this town, it’s just so hard not to say, ‘Oh, I need to look like that,'” she said. “No, be a good person, be a good mom, do a good job with the lunch, let someone cut in front of you who looks like they’re in a bigger hurry. The people I find most beautiful are the ones who aren’t trying.”

Accordingly, she said this was her response when she heard she was named the most beautiful woman: “I just said, ‘That’s ridiculous.’ I’ve told no one.”

Ben Affleck Apologizes for Trying to Hide Slave-Owning Ancestors

PBS is conducting an internal review

Ben Affleck publicly apologized for asking PBS to conceal his slave-owning ancestors on the show Finding Your Roots, as PBS announced that it is going to conduct an internal review of the case.

Emails about Affleck’s request first surfaced in the hacked Sony documents that WikiLeaks made public last Friday. Affleck broke his silence on the controversy by posting an apology on Facebook Tuesday night, saying, “I regret my initial thoughts that the issue of slavery not be included in the story. We deserve neither credit nor blame for our ancestors and the degree of interest in this story suggests that we are, as a nation, still grappling with the terrible legacy of slavery. It is an examination well worth continuing. I am glad that my story, however indirectly, will contribute to that discussion. While I don’t like that the guy is an ancestor, I am happy that aspect of our country’s history is being talked about.”

Affleck later sent out a tweet identifying his ancestor who owned slaves.

Also on Tuesday, PBS and WNET issued a joint statement announcing an internal investigation.

“In order to gather the facts to determine whether or not all of PBS’ editorial standards were observed, on Saturday, April 18, we began an internal review,” the statement said. “We have been moving forward deliberately yet swiftly to conduct this review.”

TIME TIME 100 Gala

How Twitter Brought the Frozen Songwriters and John Green Together

The three met up at the annual TIME 100 gala

Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the husband-and-wife songwriting team behind Frozen, attended the TIME 100 Gala last year as honorees, but they still felt a little out of place this year’s event.

“If you are at the Time 100 event and don’t know anyone, come find us in the corner and we will sing showtunes,” Anderson-Lopez tweeted early in the evening. “We are at the #time100 party awkwardly taking selfies in the corner,” her husband posted a few minutes later.

But after the two told TIME that a Twitter follower suggested they seek out The Fault in Our Stars author John Green, an introduction was quickly made—though it turned out this wasn’t the first time the three had met.

“I know what you guys did!” Green laughed after the couple told him who they were. “I talked to you last year but you don’t remember!” Green then introduced the pair to his wife, who, as the mother of small children, is extremely familiar with “Let It Go” and other songs from the movie. “You guys have changed her life, maybe not for the better,” Green said.

Lopez and Anderson-Lopez are still deep in the Frozen universe, writing additional songs for the Broadway musical adaptation of the Disney animated hit, but with last month’s news that a sequel was officially on its way, the two say they haven’t yet come up with a “Let It Go” follow-up—not that they’re sweating it.

“Definitely not!” Anderson-Lopez said. “We’re waiting till it comes [to us],” Lopez added.

This Is the First Image from the Next Pirates Of The Caribbean

Captain Jack is back

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer on Tuesday tweeted out the first image from the set of Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which shows Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow caught in what appears to be another episode of dire straits on the high seas.

Depp was temporarily sidelined last month after sustaining a hand injury on set in Australia that forced him to fly back to the U.S. to undergo an immediate operation.

However, the setback will not delay the premiere of the latest Pirates installment, which is slated to hit the silver screen in July 2017.

Lindsay Lohan Confuses ‘You’re Beautiful’ With ‘You’re a Donkey’ in Arabic

Luckily it was in an Instagram post, not a tattoo

Hollywood starlet Lindsay Lohan seems to be practicing her Arabic recently. On Monday, she tweeted habibi, the ubiquitous Arabic term of endearment that can translate into everything from lover to beloved. However, in a hilarious cultural gaffe, that tweet linked to an image on her Instagram feed which said “You’re beautiful” in English — and what nonspeakers would have assumed was the Arabic translation.

But the Arabic phrase did not read “You’re beautiful.” Instead, it said, “You’re a donkey.”

Lohan deleted the image from Instagram shortly thereafter, but not before social media was abuzz with the predictable mirth.

The domestic goddess burned the pop idol pretty bad at his Comedy Central roast

Martha Stewart stole the show at Comedy Central’s roast of Justin Bieber, but don’t worry—everything’s cool between her and the pop star now.

At this year’s TIME 100 Gala, Stewart told TIME Bieber sent her a signed guitar to include in her upcoming auction benefitting the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai Hospital.

Stewart, who wrote a tribute to Kim Kardashian in this year’s TIME 100 issue, said she was looking forward to catching up with the reality TV star, whom she’s met several times before, at the annual event. “I want to know what she thought about my essay,” Stewart said.

Her admiration also extends to Kardashian’s husband and fellow TIME 100 honoree, Kanye West, of whom Stewart says she’s a big fan. According to Stewart, West once stopped by her headquarters to learn about how she runs her business and to get inspired.

“He’s a very inquisitive man,” Stewart said.

After months of battling her ex-husband in court over financial responsibility for their baby born via surrogate last August, Sherri Shepherd is now officially listed as the mother of the 8-month-old.

“It’s bittersweet,” Lamar Sally told PEOPLE outside the courtroom on Tuesday.

“I’m glad it’s over, but I feel sad what it had to come to. Now I can go back to L.A. and tend to my son.”

Since the birth of Lamar Sally Jr., the formerly married pair had been locked in a legal battle after Sally said the couple had agreed to pursue surrogacy before Shepherd had a drastic change of heart months into the surrogate’s pregnancy.

“There was some additional evidence put on the record involving some video clips involving Ms. Shepherd,” Craig Bluestein, a legal representative for the baby, told PEOPLE of the judge’s decision to hold Shepherd responsible.

Bluestein cited a clip of Shepherd “expressing excitement over her and Lamar going to have a baby through the help of a surrogate carrier with no genetic connection.”

While Shepherd did not appear in court and her lawyers declined to comment, Sally’s legal team left satisfied.

“I feel very good,” said Bluestein. “I think little LJ, who is not yet 1 year old, needed some protection. Justice was served today.”

The Last Week Tonight host addressed the Trevor Noah controversy at the TIME 100 Gala

In the wake of the controversy surrounding incoming The Daily Show host Trevor Noah’s old tweets, John Oliver says having regrettable jokes is a part of every successful comedian’s development.

“You want to be embarrassed by the standards of the things you were doing [in the past],” the TIME 100 honoree and host of HBO’s Last Week Tonight said at this year’ gala, calling that embarrassment “part of getting better.”

Within 24 hours of being named the successor to Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, South African comedian Noah faced backlash over a number of years-old tweets that critics deemed, among other things, misogynist, anti-Semitic and fat-shaming. “I think John Cleese said [that] no one has the right to not be offended,” Oliver said. “Comedy is always going to ruffle feathers.”

Speaking about his own career, Oliver said there’s no shortage of terrible jokes from his past that he hopes never see the light of day again. “Listen, I’m a standup. If you go through the first years of my career, thank f-ck there weren’t camera phones,” he said, referring to his early work as “relentless, embarrassing, incompetent failure.”

Oliver, who said he hoped to meet fellow TIME 100 honoree Joanne Liu of Doctors Without Borders at this year’s TIME 100 Gala, said he was excited by this year’s turnover in late-night television hosts but that Stewart’s departure was “heartbreaking as a viewer” because “he’s the best that’s ever done this.”

Here’s What You’d Find if Julianna Margulies’ Email Got Hacked

The Good Wife actress called Ruth Bader Ginsburg her favorite TIME 100 honoree at this year's gala

This season of the CBS drama The Good Wife featured an email-hacking storyline ripped from the news, but the show’s star and TIME 100 honoree Julianna Margulies said she didn’t feel right following the Sony hack scandal.

“I chose not to read any of those emails,” Margulies said at this year’s TIME 100 Gala. “It was such an invasion of privacy and was very disturbing.”

The award-winning actress thanked her husband Keith Lieberthal, whom she called a “recovering attorney,” for encouraging her to treat her email with extreme caution. “Anything important, I call,” she said.

So what would fans find in Margulies’ email were she hacked? “Nothing! Maybe romantic emails,” she said. “People wouldn’t believe it.” Added her husband, “They might blush.”

Margulies named Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as her favorite person on this year’s TIME 100 and was disappointed when she heard she couldn’t attend the gala. “I get it,” she said. “Court’s in session.” Though Ginsburg is an inspiration for Margulies personally, she said she doesn’t think Alicia, her character on the CBS show, is anything like RBG. “I don’t think Ruth would quit work for her husband,” she said.
