Esquire has named Penelope Cruz as its 2014 “Sexiest Woman Alive,” and it is hard to see anyone having a problem with that choice.
The actress from 2013’s “The Counselor” and 2011’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” graces the cover of Esquire’s November 2014 issue. The contents inside the mag include the requisite photo shoot, of course, but also a woven-in tale of bullfighting in her native Madrid, and an interview with Cruz that proves her to also be 2014’s most private woman alive.
