Penelope Cruz, 40, is Esquire's sexiest woman alive. Here is a list of other sexy women over 40
Wearing a sexy swimsuit on the cover of Esquire magazine, it is no doubt that Penelope Cruz is the magazine's sexiest woman alive.
The Vicky Cristina Barcelona actress is the 11th woman who has taken on the title. Some of the previous title winners include Rihanna, Angelina Jolie and last year's winner Scarlett Johansson.
The 40-year-old mother of two said in an interview with the magazine that there is also another title that's suitable for her: Drama queen.
She said: "I've had an attraction to drama. Most of us have that, especially if you are an artist - you feel like you are tempted to explore the darkness."
Of course, it helps that the Spanish actress is stunning too.
Profiler Chris Jones writes in the article that Cruz "has no physical flaws".
He also said: "Her face contains no secrets, at least not about her. But her face tells you and the room plenty about you."
Certainly dramatic, but we understand.
At 40, she is one of the older women to have been given the prestigious title.
But we take a look at other women, above 40, who could have easily made the cut.
1. Sofia Vergara
We definitely can't talk about sexy women without mentioning Sofia Vergara. Bonus? She's hilarious.
2. Jennifer Lopez
Really, just look at that body?
3. Questionable movie choices aside, Cameron Diaz is doing everything right at the age of 41? She barely looks a year older than 30!
