Minka Kelly Loves Her Stripper Mom


To paraphrase Chris Rock, your only goal as a parent is to keep your daughter off the pole. But if you’re already on the pole, getting your daughter into Esquire and on TV seems pretty good too! As she reveals in the latest issue, Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive Minka Kelly’s mom was a stripper…and the Friday Night Lights actress wouldn’t have it any other way. Says Minka, “She was a stripper. It was all about what we could do to have fun with nothing. She would come home at like three, four o’clock in the morning, and she would wake me up in the middle of the night and we’d go grocery shopping.”  And some moms make Rice Krispies treats!  People have all different ideas about what’s fun.

“My mom lived a fast life,” Kelly explains, “That was so much fun. We would have a blast and buy a hundred dollars in groceries. It was just the best day ever.” The 30-year-old girlfriend of Derek Jeter also recounts how she almost got free breast implants, but decided at the last minute that, duh, she was already supernaturally attractive. When you basically look like the prettiest cheerleader in school times ten, massive boobs are really just overkill. [Photo: Esquire]


Christina Hendricks Named Esquire‘s “Best-Looking Woman”


Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks was named the “Best-Looking Woman in America” in an Esquire poll this month, which makes it all the more curious that in her cover shot for the magazine, she looks nothing like herself. From the neck down, sure, her Joan Holloway curvaceousness is intact, but there’s something about the face that reeks of Photoshop or too many hair extensions that just make her look different from what we’re used to. She still looks good (it’s not a nightmare the way some other airbrushed celebs end up),  just so unlike herself.

In the interview with Hendricks she explains what  turns her on and off, discusses her Facebook hate, and, in contrast to every other woman we know, claims to love the word panties. Of course, you’ll probably just want to check it out for the photo spread where she seductively eats a watermelon, because who needs an interview when you have fruit porn?
