Bullock is named World’s Most Beautiful Woman for 2015 by People magazine.
Real beauty is quiet. Especially in this town, it’s just so hard not to say, Oh, I need to look like that, 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.

I mean, I loved the story but I didn’t know how to play her and it was a while before I got there. The director said, after about eight months, ‘Why don’t you go and see Leigh Anne and see what I’m talking about? It’ll explain her.’ I met her and was really blown away by the energy she had. I stopped thinking about it like an actor just seeing a part, and the story is what finally got me.

The vast majority of the allegations reported are untrue and unfounded. Beyond that, I will not dignify these private matters with any further public comment. There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me. It’s because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way. This has caused my wife and kids pain and embarrassment beyond comprehension and I am extremely saddened to have brought this on them. I am truly very sorry for the grief I have caused them. I hope one day they can find it in their hearts to forgive me.
