Julia Roberts has been named People magazine's World's Most Beautiful Woman for a record-setting fifth time.

"I am very flattered," the actress explains in People's upcoming 28th annual Wold's Most Beautiful double issue that is set to hit newsstands on Friday.

The 49-year-old has previously claimed the title of Most Beautiful in 1991, 2000, 2005 and 2010.

Roberts' fifth appearance puts her ahead of her friend George Clooney who has been named People's Sexiest Man Alive twice.

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

Other women featured in the World's Most Beautiful issue include Viola Davis, Taraji P. Henson, Chrissy Metz, Mandy Moore, Emma Watson, Oprah Winfrey and Carrie Underwood.
