Where does your career go after you’re named the Sexiest Woman Alive?
It’s something Minka Kelly will have to think about after being bestowed the honor for 2010 by Esquire Magazine.
The 30-year old actress, and girlfriend on New York Yankees player Derek Jeter, follows in the footsteps of former winners Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Scarlett Johansson, Charlize Theron, and Kate Beckinsale.
Minka had an interesting childhood, her mother was a stripper. Lucky for us she didn’t choose her mom’s profession or she might not have ever made it to the big screen.
“My mom lived a fast life,” she tells Esquire. “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.”
