Laura Bush joins world's most beautiful - People Laura Bush joins world's most beautiful - People

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. first lady Laura Bush was named one of the 50 most beautiful people in the world on Wednesday, becoming the first wife of an American president to win a place on People magazine's coveted annual list.

Laura Bush, 54, joins the ranks of Julia Roberts, George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez in a list dominated by Hollywood movie stars and pop singers.

Bush tells People applies the ``less is more'' philosophy to her beauty routine as well as her handbag. ``Just like every other woman in America, I carry a lipstick, a hairbrush and Altoids,'' she told People magazine.

British actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, the new wife of Michael Douglas, graces the cover of the People special issue and although it is her third appearance on the list she still recalls a time when she was the ugly duckling.

``I was teased because I had a really flat-looking nose and before I got braces my teeth used to stick out a bit,'' she said of growing up in Wales.

Oscar winner Julia Roberts makes her sixth appearance, a record she shares with Michelle Pfeiffer and Tom Cruise. Oscar winner Benicio del Toro smolders alongside Johnny Depp and Britain's Colin Firth, while ``Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon'' stars Chow Yun Fat (news - web sites) and Zhang Ziyi reflect the list's international flavor.

Basketball player Kobe Bryant, baseball player Alex Rodriguez, American football coach Jon Gruden, TV executive Carole Black and U.S. Representative Harold Ford Jr. are among the noncelebrity beauties on the list of 50.

The list is alphabetical rather than in order of beauty.
