Los Angeles: Spanish actress Penelope Cruz has been named as the sexiest woman alive by a magazine.
The 40-year-old 'Nine' star is the 11th woman to be given the title by a leading magazine. Actress Scarlett Johansson bagged the title last year.
Other actress to have won the spot previously are Angelina Jolie, Rihanna, Charlize Theron and Halle Berry. The model-actress, who has recently finished filming for her upcoming film 'Ma Ma', said she does less work now as she is busy taking care of her family.
