According to The Superficial, Halle Berry is Esquire's sexiest woman alive. And after seeing some of the photos (and that one can't look/can't look away sex scene from Monster's Ball) we can't disagree. We’re not going to sugarcoat it; Halle Berry is ridiculously attractive. But what does she have going on that the last 3 sexiest woman alive designees don't have?
The last 3 winners were Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson, and Jessica Biel for 2007, 2006, and 2005, respectively. First of all, none of them are 42. The whole gang was at least 10 years younger when they caught the award. Next, despite the fact the Charlize Theron is African, the whole gang is a little lighter that Halle Berry. She's also the only divorcee. And finally, none of these ladies have had a kid. How badass is it that a 42-year old, twice divorced black woman who had a kid 7 months ago is The Sexiest Woman Alive?

On top of that, old Halle Berry maaaaaay be a cougar. We've always been under the impression that if you’re over 40 and dating a man 10 years your junior that you are a cougar. So, Halle Berry's boyf, Gabriel Aubry, is 10 years younger than the 42-year old actress. So, is Halle Berry a cougar? And are you still a cougar if the dude is your baby's daddy? What if you plan on having more kids with dude, as Us Weekly claims they're planning. Also, can you still be cougar-bait if your dude is over 30? And what if the guy looks exactly like Sawyer from Lost, does that make any difference? Maybe we should just kick the whole cougar sobriquet to the curb until someone can figure this out.
