Minka Kelly: Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive 2010
The 30-year-old actress shares about her interesting childhood. “My mom lived a fast life,” Minka tells the mag’s November 2010 issue. “It was all about what we could do to have fun with nothing. She — for most of my life, she was a dancer. An exotic dancer. She was a stripper. Um, so she would come home at like three, four o’clock in the morning, and sometimes she would have a really great night, and so she would wake me up in the middle of the night and we’d go to Ralphs and go grocery shopping. And that was so much fun. We’d have the whole grocery store to ourselves, and we would have a blast and buy a hundred dollars in groceries. And it was just the best day ever. The best day.”
During the interview, which took place over dinner, Minka intently thanks the wait staff for clearing out plates and changing the silverware.
“My boyfriend [Derek Jeter] noticed that about me, too,” she says. “He’s the same way, and he said it was a good way to judge someone’s character. It’s actually unfortunate, in a way, that you would notice that. It blows my mind that anyone could be unkind to anyone. The guy clearing our plates is a person. I don’t care if you’re sweeping the floor. I don’t care if you’re cleaning my toilet… Not that I have someone to clean my toilet — I clean my own toilet.”
