Minka Kelly is Sexiest Woman Alive: Esquire Magazine

For Minka herself, the title will take a little getting used to.

“I’ve never done a sexy photo shoot before,” says the Parenthood star, who notes that channeling her sex appeal for the Esquire shoot was a new experience. “I’ve never really honestly tapped into that side. It was really liberating. It was exciting. I would look at the pictures, like, ‘That’s me?’ Hopefully people will see that I’m not just a 17-year-old cheerleader from ‘Friday Night Lights.”
