Esquire magazine has (finally) dubbed actress  Mila Kunis as 2012's sexiest woman. In reality, the 29-year-old Ukrainian has been sexy pretty much since the days of "That 70's Show," but it's nice to know that consistently strong roles ("Friends With Benefits," "Black Swan") and dating (maybe?) Ashton Kutcher have elevated her to every man's consciousness, where she belongs and should remain forever and ever.

Based on the interview, she sounds pretty down to earth. Of her humor, Kunis told the magazine, "I just know how to deliver a joke. There are people who naturally exude humor and are constantly saying funny things, and there are the people who know how to deliver a joke. It's a learned skill. Through twenty years of doing this, I practice it. I think that the second you think that you're funny is when you stop being funny."

The Royals are finally getting some positive attention, too. U.K. lifestyle magazine Tatler has knighted Prince Harry "Man of the Year." The magazine writes, "He is the big-hearted warrior prince who, when he isn't flying an attack helicopter in Afghanistan, works tirelessly for his wounded fellow soldiers." Underlying the honor, though, is the context of Prince Harry's recent scandal; Tatler's cover headline,"Dirty Harry," seems to nod to it.

Now all they need is a magazine to honor Kate Middleton in the same, positive way.
