Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock, who was named the Most Beautiful woman by People magazine recently, said she accepted the title as it gave her a chance to speak against the negativity that women face in the media over their age and look.
“I feel like it’s become open hunting season in how women are attacked and it’s not because of who we are as people, it’s because of how we look or our age. I’m shocked—and maybe I was just naive, but I’m embarrassed by it.
