Minka Kelly named Esquire's 'sexiest woman alive'
"Friday Night Lights" cheerleader Minka Kelly is officially the sexiest woman alive. Or so says Esquire magazine, citing Kelly (no relation) for her girl-next-door charm and blend of unique qualities, all of which are on display in a series of photos in which Kelly shows off her assets in push-up bras.
But for anyone more interested in the girl behind the bra, there's an accompanying article full of fascinating Minka trivia, written in the appropriately slavering tone:
Go back and watch some old episodes of Friday Night Lights -- watch Minka flirt, watch her cheer, watch her be disgusted, watch her wake up in her underwear with the quarterback's best friend, watch her find Jesus. Jesus, just watch her. Try not to watch her. She's one of those electric actresses who seem unbearably beautiful and yet real. She breaks your heart twice: She's good, so you feel for the trials of her character, and she's real enough that, like the prettiest girl in school, you might both know her and know she could never go for you.
Also, she's a fighter:
"I'm a very nice girl, but nobody pushes me around," she would write me later in an e-mail. She was talking about a fight she got into at school once. She had befriended a girl who knew how to kickbox — who, in fact, "came from a family of kickboxers" — and Minka eventually ended up kicking another girl's [expletive] in one of those big fights after school where everybody shows up. Even today, when you mess with her or one of her friends, she wrote, "that's when you'll see a whole other side of me. That's when you'll see the side that grew up in Albuquerque."
And a chef:
At dinner we split spaghetti carbonara, which is made with a raw egg that cooks when mixed into the hot pasta. "My mom could add an egg to anything and make it better," she says. Top Ramen instant noodles, for example. "She'd say, 'Nothing for dinner? Watch this.' " And she would cook that stuff up, add whatever vegetables were in the freezer, drop a raw egg in so it cooked in the hot broth — dinner.
Now you know.
