The magazine announced Roberts' selection on Wednesday.

The 49-year-old actress has previously claimed the cover spot in 2010, 2005, 2000 and 1991, a year after shooting to fame in the romantic comedy Pretty Woman.

Roberts, who won an Academy Award for Erin Brockovich, says she is "very flattered" by the experience.

People's 28th annual "World's Most Beautiful" double-issue will be on newsstands Friday.
