The style mag has selected Kate Beckinsale, 36, for its annual “Sexiest Woman Alive” title. The Whiteout star follows in the footsteps of starlets like Charlize Theron and Halle Berry, who have previously taken the honor.
“This whole notion of being named ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ is going to earn me quite a beating,” Kate laughs in the November issue of Esquire Magazine. “You can’t have that title with four brothers. I’ll get wedgies. Headlocks. Noogies.”
Still, Kate’s happy for the tag that solidifies her place as an official hottie.
“I like the idea of it, too. I do. I’m feeling that I must earn this. I need to go out and become much better at pole dancing or something.”
