The Sexiest Woman Alive has been revealed

Now this is an impressive addition to any CV.

Esquire magazine has just unveiled actress Penelope Cruz as its ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ for 2014.

The impressive title comes with a coveted cover shoot for the latest issue of the magazine, and the 40-year-old Vicky Christina Barcelona star is positively smouldering on the front page.

While Penelope refused to discuss either her husband, Javier Bardem, or their children, Leonardo and Luna, she did offer an interesting insight into what she finds “attractive” – and it has nothing to do with looks.

“For me, the most attractive, charming, cool, fun, interesting thing is – how could I call it? A plan,” she said.

Penelope is carrying the ‘Sexiest Woman’ torch on from last year’s winner, actress Scarlett Johansson, and becomes the eleventh woman to be honoured with the title.

Other past winners of the title include Angelina Jolie, new mum Mila Kunis, Charlize Theron and Jessica Biel.

Judging from her absolutely stunning photo shoot in the November issue of Esquire, the magazine has definitely made a stellar choice!

That is one fancy title to have. We’ll hold out for next year!
