Esquire Names Charlize Theron the Sexiest Woman in the World

Esquire magazine has named Charlize Theron the sexiest woman alive.

The Oscar winner now ranks in the same category as Angelina Jolie, Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johansson.

The 32-year-old South African beauty sounds off in the Oct. 16 issue on everything from her famous film roles to politics.

In one excerpt, the “In the Valley of Elah” star takes a swipe at the United States when she states, “I grew up in a country that learned the lesson that you can't impose your way of life on 26 different kinds of people just because you call yourself righteous. I think there are lessons this country still has to learn."
