Derek Jeter has a winner on his hands!!

Actress Minka Kelly (Jeter’s girlfriend) has been named 2010’s Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire Magazine. Kelly also covers the magazine’s November issue looking very sexy if we must say….and talks about everything from growing up to being confident in her skin.

On growing up:
“I’m a very nice girl, but nobody pushes me around. 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.”

On being confident in her skin:
“I’m so excited to be a woman. I’m confident in my skin, and I’m cool with my flaws and all that stuff.”

On how she became successful:
“No matter what you’re doing, live it. Make an experience. Have fun. Relate to someone. Take them in. Learn. Right? Or else you’re wasting your time. And time is precious. I didn’t go to theater school. I didn’t go to Julliard. But I’ve lived a lot. I’ve seen a lot. I feel like that makes up for a little bit. I’ve lived a lot at my young age.”
