Penelope Cruz

"I had an attraction to drama. Most of us have that, especially if you are an artist — you feel like you are tempted to explore the darkness"

This year, the title of Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive has been given to Penelope Cruz

The actress of the upcoming Spanish-language film Ma Ma and Grimsby with Sacha Baron Cohen is the 10th honoree of the annual title.

"I've played a lot of tricks on myself," she says in the magazine's cover story. "I've made it hard for me sometimes, especially in my teens and 20s. I had an attraction to drama. Most of us have that, especially if you are an artist — you feel like you are tempted to explore the darkness. I could not be less interested now. For me, the most attractive, charming, cool, fun, interesting thing — how could I call it? A plan."

Previous recipients of the magazine's title include Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, Rihanna, Minka Kelly, Kate Beckinsale, Halle Berry, Charlize Theron, Jessica Biel and Angelina Jolie.
