Charlize Theron named sexiest woman by Esquire
Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron can now add another string to her bow – the title of Sexiest Woman Alive.
According to men’s magazine Esquire, the South African actress follows in the footsteps of Hollywood beauties Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel, who have been named sexiest woman in previous years.
The accolade is chosen by Esquire’s editors, writers and contributors, but according to articles editor Ryan D’Agostino, there is no set criteria.
He said of Theron: ‘She combines unbelievable beauty with a smart mind and this attitude like she’s almost one of the guys – like you could hang out and have a beer with – and all of that adds up to sexy.’
The blonde actress, who won an Oscar for playing a lesbian serial killer in 2003’s Monster, is currently starring in war film In the Valley of Elah.
The issue of Esquire featuring Theron is released October 16.
