Penelope Cruz is all natural in a new photo spread in Esquire magazine, celebrating her as the ‘Sexiest Woman Alive.’

Penelope Cruz is stunning and all natural in a new photo spread for Esquire magazine. She breaks the stereotype that actresses over 40 must get lifted, Botoxed and breast-enhanced to have a career in Hollywood.

Granted Penelope probably has good genes, but she exudes a natural beauty that no plastic surgeon could ever improve with a nip or tuck.

The Spanish actress and model was named Esquire’s “Sexiest Woman Alive” in it’s November issue. It was a bold choice given the slew of hot, young starlets in Hollywood who have both youth and beauty going for them.

Cruz began dating Spanish actor Javier Bardem while they shot the Woody Allen movie “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” in 2008. They married in 2010 in a private ceremony.

Penelope gave birth to a son, Leonardo, in 2011 and daughter, Luna, in 2013. Since then, she’s become an outspoken advocate for breastfeeding.

She describes her early years as dark and dangerous, because she saw herself as an artist, who needed to test everything. But her family is everything to her now, which explains why she’s been under the radar lately, she tells the magazine.

She refuses to see herself as the sexiest woman alive. Instead, she feels like a mother who doesn’t get enough sleep. With a three-year-old and a one-year-old who would?

The admission only makes her all the more beautiful.
