Penelope Cruz Named 'Esquire' Magazine's Sexiest Woman Alive 2014!

Penelope Cruz looks unbelievably amazing on the cover of Esquire magazine’s November 2014 issue – where she was just named sexiest woman alive!

Here’s what the 40-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On being tight lipped about her marriage to Javier Bardem: “That is for us.”

On her frequent collaborator Pedro AlmodĂłvar, who directed five of her movies: “[He is] the biggest source of inspiration.”

On her life so far: “I’ve played a lot of tricks on myself. I’ve made it hard for me sometimes, especially in my teens and twenties. 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.”

    This must be a joke! I mean, she is nice but i dont find ver even sexy!!!

  • Joblo

    A joke? You’re the one joking I guess because this woman is stunning and exude sexiness!

  • lol

    That’s random. But at least it’s not Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton or Scarlett Johansson. Those silly butterfaces are overexposed and overrated.

  • NotQuite

    Seems like a nice person, but she’s not even close to the sexiest woman alive.

  • Elisa

    mmm I would believe this like 10 years ago but now it seems weird, she hasn’t been relevant in years

  • Please!

    How can these people say sexiest woman “alive” when all they’re looking at is Hollywood and celebrities? Plastic surgery, professional make-up and Photoshop can turn anyone into a beauty. How long did it take to review every woman alive on the planet to come to this conclusion?

  • Josh

    Shouldn’t people vote instead of the morons who work for Esquire? Sexiest until you hear her talk.

  • Barbie and Kent

    She is SENSUALL ,TALENTED Aand sexy
    I am glad that Barbie doesnt get that title but dame

    Pathetic choice !! She is very pretty but when Tom Cruise and Penelope started their affair right in front of heartbroken Nicole Kidman, I totally lost any respect for her. Haven’t watched anything with her since.

  • Jax

    I don’t care who it is…as long as it’s not a reality star who’s famous for nothing.

  • I don’t think so

    Meh. These pics are photoshopped to hell and back. Just as ridiculous and random as Adam Levine being named the sexiest man. Since when being bland, dumb and old is considered as sexy?

  • Sofia

    @Doreen: C’mon, she was only Tom Cruise’s beard. She used him to further her career on US soil and left him when he started acting crazy in public.

  • Hmm

    I totally forgot she existed. I saw her in that atrocious movie “The Counselor” last year and wondered if every single actor who signed up for it had been punk’d. I’ve never been a fan, she reminds me a bit of annoying Sofia Vergara with her schtick.

  • Chris

    Two words: SALMA HAYEK.

  • boom

    nice, a unique looking spanish beauty this year instead of the usual overexposed average white girl.

  • Esteban

    White Latina is the Right Latina no Negra Hispanics let in YUCK!

  • Sofia the HO

    @Sofia: u still mad Tom cruise broke up with you in high school bitch.

  • Ice

    @Sofia: homophobic cu//nt

  • Ranier


  • dd

    love her…..

  • She’s a Toothpick

    Half you idiots just need a hole and a heartbeat to consider someone “sexy.” I think she’s a Jew hating toothpick that looks like she’s had her fair share of plastic surgery. Glad the world is as materialistic and self absorbed as I feared.



  • Halloween costume

    she is really sexiest ever.

  • http://comcast Lynda

    You have to be kidding !!!!!

  • Mark

    boring actress, cheap sex appeal

  • just

    First time I agree with a magazine. To me she is the most beautiful.

  • good


    yup! penelope is super sexy though, watch her in her spanish language movies. She’s absolutely gorgeous.

  • what


    lol I’ve seen whiter women in south america, and the white supremacist don’t even consider penelope white so get over yourself.

    She’s as white as selena, salma, sofia vergara shakira and cote de pablo.

  • Sophie

    Her PR team bought this shi.t for her! She’s not even relevant nowadays and people only know her because of her beard contract with Tom Cruise. She su.cks in american and spanish movies as well, she’s lucky that she’s Almodovar’s boot licker and has the help of casting couch to get the same role in Hollywood as a stereotyped latin

  • Anton

    I thought Sofia Vergara would have been, but this is alright too.
