Halle Berry was named the sexiest woman alive by Esquire magazine in its November issue, here is what the actress had to say:
“I’ve been in the business for more than twenty years, and you decide now, at this particular time, that I’m the sexiest woman alive? Come on. I mean, you couldn’t go with the Bond-girl year? You didn’t like the orange bikini? I liked the orange bikini. That would have been a pretty good year. Or what about the Monster’s Ball year? That was a sexy moment. Couldn’t you have packaged that up with some list of the best movie sex scenes ever? That would have been very easy, very magaziney. But 2008? Well, I don’t know exactly what it means, but being forty-two and having just had a baby, I think I’ll take it. There are billions of women on the planet, but let’s just say for shits and giggles that I am the sexiest woman alive. First, I would have to thank all the people who made it happen.” More on Interview & photos… Ashanti is featured on the cover of Today’s Black Woman magazine as “The Year’s Biggest Comeback Story.
