Penelope Cruz Is Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive

Penelope Cruz Is Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive

Penelope Cruz is Esquire magazine’s Sexiest Woman Alive for 2014! Congratulations to her! She joins the likes of Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry and Scarlett Johansson with the honor. She wouldn’t open up about her personal life, but did talk about her acting abilities in the interview.

“She is impossibly beautiful,” he writes in the November issue. “When she walks into a room, men start walking into furniture.”

Later he adds, “Over the course of a long lunch, Cruz looks like a thousand different women. She flips her hair, or she shifts in her chair, or she creases her forehead or widens her eyes, and these alone are enough to transform her. It feels like watching close-up magic, an actress playing every possible part and well enough to be confounding.”

Cruz’s ability to slip into different characters is indeed something to behold, but make no mistake — she knows exactly who she is offscreen. That wasn’t always the case, though.

“I’ve played a lot of tricks on myself. I’ve made it hard for me sometimes, especially in my teens and twenties,” the Oscar winner told the mag. “I had an attraction to drama. Most of us have that, especially if you are an artist — you feel like you are tempted to explore the darkness. I could not be less interested now. For me, the most attractive, charming, cool, fun, interesting thing — how could I call it? A plan.”

Her plan now revolves around life with her family: husband Javier Bardem and kids Leo, 3, and Luna, 14 months. Asked about them during her chat with Esquire, she said, “That is for us.”

At least some celebrities know the value of keeping their private lives private.

Penelope Cruz: Breastfeeding is addictive!


I think Penelope Cruz is one of the most beautiful women on the planet. She is flawless. She looks just as gorgeous WITH makeup as she does without. When she opens her mouth, pure sexiness oozes out. She is just so hot!

The actress landed the January (already!?) cover of Allure Magazine, and she does not disappoint. Penelope opens up about being addicted to breastfeeding, her family and her diet. Here’s more!

Diet & breastfeeding: Penélope Cruz dug into the soup, Peking duck, and crispy fish she ordered during her Allure interview, saying, “As you can see, we’re not going to talk about diet for this story.” Not the deprivation type, anyway. Cruz, mother of six-month-old Luna, says, “I’m supposed to get extra calories because breast-feeding you burn, like, an extra 500 a day. I was breast-feeding my son 13 months, and I plan to do the same with my daughter. [Nursing] is addictive. It’s hard when the day comes when you have to stop.”

Family: Cruz and her husband, actor Javier Bardem, are also parents to Leonardo, almost 3. “I always knew I wanted a family because of the way I grew up,” she says. “Family has always been the most important thing.”

Hair: “My parents owned a hair salon, so I learned a few tricks there. I can cut people’s hair—if they let me,” says Cruz.

On Salma Hayek: “She’s one of my best friends. We call each other huevos [eggs]. It was because when we were working together, we didn’t have children yet, so we used to sleep much more than now. So it was a way to call each other lazy. We slept in the same bed so many times and it was like she was always trying to wake me up and call me huevos.”

I loved breastfeeding my first son. I did it for 13 months as well, and I loved every single time. By time my second son came around I wasn’t able to keep it up like I could with my first. But I understand the love for breastfeeding. It’s something only YOU and your child can experience. it’s such a bonding thing.
