Penelope Cruz named Sexiest Woman Alive 2014 by ‘Esquire’
The folks at Esquire have spoken: 2014’s Sexiest Woman Alive is Penélope Cruz.
More beautiful than ever at 40, the Oscar winner — she received the golden statuette for her fiery performance in Vicky Cristina Barcelona — is now part of an elite club of gorgeous stars who have also been bestowed with the “sexiest alive” title. Past honorees include Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, Angelina Jolie, Rihanna, Minka Kelly, Halle Berry, Kate Beckinsale, Charlize Theron, and Jessica Biel.
Berry was 42 at the time she took the title, making her the oldest winner to date. Johansson, who happens to have starred alongside Cruz in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, is the magazine’s only two-time selection, having won in 2013 and 2006.
