Los Angeles - Halle Berry is Esquire magazine's sexiest woman alive.
Berry says she doesn't "know exactly what it means, but being 42 and having just had a baby," she thinks she'll take it. Berry gave birth to her daughter, Nahla, in March.
Berry says "sexiness is a state of mind, a comfortable state of being." She says "it's about loving yourself in your most unlovable moments."
But Berry says she can't claim the sexiest-woman honor all to herself. She says she shares "this title with every woman, because every woman is a nominee for it at any moment."
