Minka Kelly Named Sexiest Woman Alive

Minka Kelly is Esquire magazine’s 2010 Sexiest Woman Alive!

The Friday Night Lights actress, who is dating Derek Jeter, opened up to the magazine about what her childhood was like. “My mom lived a fast life,” Kelly explained. "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.”

Kelly also talked about just having turned 30. "It is a big one,” she said of her recent birthday. “And I love it. I think it's the most exciting birthday I think I've ever had. I'm so excited to be a woman. Done with the twenties. I'm confident — confident in my skin, and I'm cool with my flaws and all that stuff. It just feels nice to be at peace with yourself. I think my thirtieth birthday gave me permission to have all that. The twenties were a pain in the ass — figuring it all out. What am I doing? Where do I go?"
