Penelope Cruz is hot, hot, hot! The 40-year-old Spanish actress was dubbed Esquire magazine’s “Sexiest Woman Alive” for the publication’s 10th annual issue. Surprised? We can’t exactly say we were -- especially after Cruz appeared on the cover of Esquire while wearing a hypnotizing one piece swimsuit.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” star, who was described as having “no physical flaws” from profiler Chris Jones, showed off her figure as she posed for a few photos for the prestigious feature. "She is impossibly beautiful," he wrote in the November issue, explaining that Cruz is so striking that men will actually “start walking into furniture” when she enters the room.
But Cruz, who is following in the footsteps of other stunning “sexiest alive” winners like Angelina Jolie (2004), Jessica Biel (2005), Scarlett Johansson (2006 and 2013), Charlize Theron (2007), Halle Berry (2008), Kate Beckinsale (2009), Minka Kelly (2010), Rihanna (2011) and Mila Kunis (2012), only has eyes for one man. Cruz began dating actor Javier Bardem when the two stared alongside one another in the 2008 romantic comedy “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.”
Two years later, the duo was married in a private ceremony at a friend’s home. The couple currently has a son, Leo, and a daughter, Luna, together, but Cruz is very adamant about keeping her family life private. When asked about her family of four, Cruz told Esquire, “That is for us.”
However, unlike her life at home, Cruz has no problem being bold and blunt when it comes to the big screen. Below are some of Cruz’s sexiest silver screen moments that bolster her award for “Sexiest Woman Alive” -- from her sizzling scenes in “Venuto Al Mondo (Twice Born)” to her scorching hot role in “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” which earned the hot mama an Academy award in 2009:
