Sandra Bullock wants to be buried in her high school cheerleader uniform.

The 51-year-old actress - who is dating photographer Bryan Randall - revealed she ''embarrassingly'' still has the outfit she donned as a teenager and joked she plans to get back into it for a ''sexy night'' some time.

She said: ''That might come in handy some sexy night. I don't know who I'm saving it for. I want to be buried in it.''

Despite being voted the most beautiful woman in the world, the 'Our Brand in Crisis' star - who has an adopted son, Louis, five, and recently adopted a baby girl - insists she lost a lot of roles in her early career because she didn't have the ''classic'' look of a leading lady.

She told the November issue of America's Glamour magazine: ''They didn't want me to be the girl. 'Cause I wasn't classically beautiful.

''I loved comedy. I was the best friend. I wasn't a leading lady.''

But Sandra insists the scrutiny of her appearance led to opportunities that have benefited her in the long term.

She added: ''It allowed me to express myself in a more authentic way. Because I didn't fit a certain type, it gave me the career I wanted.''
