Jolie, who manages to mesmerize men - and fight
off robot invaders - with just one eye in her
latest movie, has been named the "sexiest woman
alive" in the latest edition of Esquire magazine.
Jolie, featured as the alluring, courageous fighter
pilot with an eye patch in Sky Captain and the
World of Tomorrow, was the top pick of the magazine's
editors and mostly male readers to grace the cover
of Esquire's annual Women We Love issue. The 29-year-old
Jolie, who also lends her voice and sexy persona
to a vampish fish named Lola in the computer-animated
undersea adventure Shark Tale, received 7 percent
of all votes cast by readers.
Oscar winner and "Catwoman" star Halle Berry ran
a close second with 6 percent. Newlywed pop princess
Britney Spears made the cut this year at No. 3.
In an Esquire interview accompanying a cover photo
of the actress, Jolie acknowledged her image as
being "kind of wild or bad or weird or crazy.
The tattoos, the blood, cutting myself - it's
all very much who I am," she said. "If you knew
me privately, you might think I was even wilder
than my reputation. But I'm also much softer.
I'm a soft woman. Softer than people think."
also reveals that she recently bought an airplane
and is taking flying lessons, a hobby she embraced
because she and her 3-year-old adopted son share
a fascination with planes. "I have to concentrate
on my son," she said. "That's why I have lovers
right now and not a boyfriend. I don't want my
son to start calling somebody Daddy unless that
person's gonna stay."
marriage to actor Billy Bob Thornton ended in
divorce in May 2003. She will next be seen as
Alexander the Great's mom in Oliver Stone's upcoming
epic "Alexander." Rounding out the field of leading
contenders for sexiest woman in the magazine's
November issue, which hits newsstands this week,
were TV/pop personality Jessica Simpson, sultry
R&B singer Beyonce, Oscar-winning actress Charlize
Theron and former "Friends" star Jennifer Aniston.
