Halle Berry is named the “Sexiest Woman Alive” in the November 2008 issue of Esquire, a title that was held by Megan Fox. Photographed by Cliff Watts, Halle Berry recreates the Bill Clinton Esquire cover in celebration of the magazine’s seventy-fifth anniversary and wears t-shirts with images of past Esquire covers printed on them.
“I’ve been around a lot of beautiful women, and Halle is truly a sexy, beautiful woman,” explains photographer Watts. “I’ve seen guys who aren’t really attracted to many women be attracted to her. I’ve seen women be attracted to her. She’s so likable. Her sexiness goes beyond her good body and beautiful skin. There’s some warmth about her. It’s contagious.”
Halle Berry also proves that you can be the sexiest woman alive and still be smart, as she wrote the accompanying article herself!
And the sexiest woman alive shares how she feels about being sexy, “Sexy is not about wearing sexy clothes or shaking your booty until you damn near get hip dysplasia; it’s about knowing that sexiness is a state of mind—a comfortable state of being. It’s about loving yourself even in your most unlovable moments. I know a little bit about that.”
