Minka Kelly Credits Her Stripper Mom For 'Sexiest Woman Alive' Title

You would think having her mom work as a stripper would have traumatized Minka Kelly, but the actress says those were actually the best days of her life.

"She was a stripper," Kelly tells Esquire in the issue which names her 'Sexiest Woman Alive', alongside a sizzling photoshoot, of course.

"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."

The 30-year-old 'Friday Night Lights' actress and girlfriend of Derek Jeter, says she wasn't the least bit embarrassed by her mother.

"My mom lived a fast life," she says. "That was so much fun. We would have a blast and buy a hundred dollars in groceries. It was just the best day ever."

In fact, she says having someone who was a stripper for most of her life helped her discover her sexy side.

"It was really liberating. It was exciting," she says. "I would look at the pictures, like, that's me?"

And although she now embraces her looks, she didn't always see herself that way.

"I never really took the idea of me being a model seriously, because I never thought that I had the body for it," she says. "I'm five-feet-five, and I have a bubble butt and pretty big thighs. So I learned quickly just to be happy with what I've got."
