Minka Kelly: Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive 2010

Minka Kelly: Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive 2010

Congrats to Minka Kelly for scoring the title of 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.”

    Oh wow, that’s amazing *rolls eyes sarcastically*

    She’s absolutely only okay in the face. And no one she is only “Esquire”‘s most beautiful person. She’s absolutely only okay overall, but I guess if you resemble a troll you may find her the “sexiest woman alive” *rolls eyes again*

  • lynn

    @LuckyL: I agree she is ok

  • jimmy

    This interview is such crap. Minka can be really rude and a wench when she wants to be. She’s been really rude to waitstaff before. Please, this is such an image makeover from her airplane incident and to promote her film.

  • Rochelle

    She’s OK – I’ve seen better!!!!

  • Jason

    She is so fake, how is she even significant, like what does she even do now? Go get a real acting job!

  • [I n F a m o u s l y C o o L]

    …nice stomach. too bad she lives off dereck jeter.

  • Jerry

    Oh god, SO SO hot! And beautiful and on the best TV show in the world.
    The world will not be the same when FNL ends this season :(

  • Rich

    OK??? People called Megan Fox the sexiest woman in the world forever and Minka Kelly is hotter than her. She is tight everywhere it counts, looks like a natural c, and facial features people pay for. Don’t hate because you can’t get off the couch bitter girls.

  • dundies

    lol i swear the second quote sounds like something megan fox would say haha :)

  • Who?????

    Never heard of her…..what is she famous for???

  • lillyb

    Ok ladies, seriously? if Minka is just “ok”, then I would like to see what you all look like.
    some women are just too funny for words…lol

  • Candyb

    Dont know about sexiest woman alive, but she’s way more than just “ok”..abs rock in the cover photo..

  • julie

    she is just simple no big deal she actually is very bottom heavy very chunky legs like tree stumps all of dereks other girls were much more beautiful and the one in NYC that gorgeous brunette forget about it no comparison but shes moved on from him and left him with a dead ego haha now settle for this …..wonder what his nice parents think of this raunchy routine act? huh? derek?

  • xxx

    Sexiest woman ALIVE?! Have Adriana Lima or Miranda Kerr died or something?

  • http://JustJared Jan

    She is definitely NOT the sexiest woman alive. She is an exhibitionist who was videoed. Nobody ever looks sexy when they are trying sooooooo hard to look sexy. Ugh.

  • WhatWillTheNeigborsSay?

    she’s the sexiest woman alive because she puts her clothes off for the magazine.

  • mailey

    i hate people who feel the need to point out to others how “normal” they are – that they clean their own toilet or walk their own dog *rolls my eyes*. whateverrrr.

  • Mary from Russia

    She is not the sexiest woman but she is naturally beautiful. She is 30 but looks 10 years younger. Some actresses look 30 in their twenties ;-)
    And btw who would you choose the sexiest instead of her? Megan Transformer Fox? Miranda Kerr? She resembles a big pumpkin on thin legs : )

  • Alias

    Nice “airbrushed” abs, compare the 1st pic and 4th pic

    ROTFLMFAO!!!

  • offtheproperty

    Sexy, sure. Sexiest? Hardly.

  • offtheproperty

    She’s trying to seem sexy by twisting her arms around behind her head and spreading her fingers out against the wall and pulling her knees up with one just slightly in front of the other one and sneering but it’s not working. She should stick to whatever else she does instead of that.

  • goodmorningall

    beautiful, yes! sexy, hell no..have you heard her voice? it’s awful!

  • meme

    not sexiest woman alive worthy

  • Leila

  • http://kennowen.blogspot.com/ Ganymede

    Minka was fantastic as Lyla on ‘Friday Night Lights’! She looks great here and is rumored to be up for ‘Wonder Woman’ if the project clears! Happy for her!

  • slambang

  • who is she????

    who is this girl? and what tv show i never ever heard of it did derek jeter loose his mind with all the gorgeous girls he went out with? i guess so

  • longchamp

    on cover – poor man’s mandy moore. in the rag – pretty but far from sexy (wtf @ those contorted splayed fingers?!) and definitely light miles away from ‘sexiest’. jeter must be tight w/the editor of that mag or something. next!

  • Anon

    I don’t think her kindness is sincere….Strictly my opinion. Does not mean I think she’s a bad person, just my opinion that she is not a genuinely kind person. The plane incident was the first red flag, this just solidifies it.

    During the interview, which took place over dinner, Minka intently thanks the wait staff for clearing out plates and changing the silverware. “My boyfriend 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.”

    hahahahahaha! lol. whatever.

  • ??????

    I’ve never heard of this woman, is she an actress, singer, model??? She must be only famous known in America!!!

  • no clue

    Who is Minka Kelly, never heard of her or Derek Jeter, are they actors?

  • anna

    NO WAY SHE’S 30!! SHE LOOKS 20! omg, is that right jared?? she’s gorgeous, I always see her in parenthood..she’s like leighton meesters twin, maybe even prettier, congrats to her!

  • anna

    @julie: bottom heavy?? what do you like, chicken legs? you people make me laugh

  • http://www.zicocn.com wholesale electronics

    whatever,sexy,sexy,sexy,but not mine.

  • DEREK JETER

    @julie: To comment #13: “I wonder what his nice parents think of this raunchy routine act? huh? derek?” UMMMM ISN’T DEREK JETER ONE OF THE BIGGEST MANHOES EVER???? His parents obviously wouldn’t care if Minka Kelly poses for sexy pics considering their son is a major s.l.u.t. Jeter’s parents don’t strike me as the type of people who care too much about morality or modesty, just look at how their son turned out. He looks like a walking STD.

  • WORK ON YOUR ACTING, GIRL!

    This girl is hot but it’s kinda sad when they depend on their looks to get by in life. She shouldn’t take these kinds of pics cuz thats all that she’ll be known for. She should focus on her acting career. Girls who depend only on their looks for fame have very short careers in Hollywood because every single human on earth ages as the years go by. It’s pretty stupid of her.

  • TERRIBLE CHILDHOOD

    I feel sorry for her for having had a stripper mom. You know that many strippers are also prostitutes b/c they give hand jobs and BJs to men in the private rooms? Some will even go all the way. They get paid more doing sexual favors than by just dancing for them. Kinda depressing to think this girl had to live a childhood like that. And getting woken up at 3 or 4 in the morning when the mom came home?! Where the hell was this girl’s dad?! I’m a guy and I would never allow my kids to live a life like that.

  • HORRIBLE TASTE IN MEN

    She’s a pretty girl but she has HORRIBLE TASTE IN MEN! First John “Famwhhhore” Mayer?! And now Derek “Manho” Jeter? Yuuuuck! She needs to get tested for STDs from these nasty men. It’s no wonder she goes for these types if her mom was a stripper.

  • ETHNICITY?!

    She must be mixed with something else because white girls don’t age very well. But Minka looks soooo young! I bet she has some Italian or Latina ancestry. She looks younger than KATE BOSWORTH and Kate is like 3 years younger.

  • Tommy S.

    What a fine azz girl. I’m only 19 but I don’t care if she’s older than me. I’d love atleast one night with Minka!! Please, Minka, please!! It’s really not a big deal anymore. Lots of hot chicks date younger men. Plus she looks so young that she looks like she could be my age!

  • http://jorevcosmetics.com Ms Bar Jolie Gaga

    Sexiest woman alive? Is this serious? Are they kidding us? Who did Derek Jeter pay off for this title? Minka Kelly is from Friday Night Lights. She is average at best. Sexy is: Adriana Lima, Angelina Jolie, Sophia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, Bar Rafaeli, Salma Hayek, etc. Sexy has to be a woman who is unlike any we normally see. If we all step out of our house right now and walk to the nearest supermarket, guaranteed, you will meet FIVE women hotter than Minka. That’s a fact.
