Deepika Padukone has won the title of FHM's Sexiest Woman of 2014. The annual competition has crowned Katrina Kaif three years in a row. Dips has come close but never won. She took home the Silver medal in 2011, Bronze in 2012, 2013 – landing on the top slot only once – in 2010. In an interview to the magazine she says, "It's a damn good start. Especially since it's by the people and for the people… Plus, a woman always feels complimented when someone says she is sexy. And well, someone's got to win."
She adds, "I think people shy away from being called sexy because we tend to automatically relate it to sex. The larger assumption is that it has to be about sin show, a full voluptuous body…those are the things that come to people's mind. For me sexy is your personality. For me someone who has a sense of humour is sexy, being confident is sexy, being emotional and vulnerable is sexy…someone who is senzitive is sexy."
