BOND GIRL Halle Berry was named the world's sexiest woman yesterday - the competition's oldest winner at 34.
The actress - who famously wept as she picked up a best actress Oscar last year - is also the first black recipient of the FHM magazine honour.
She narrowly pipped soap star turned pop act Holly Valance to the top place in the FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2003 poll.
More than 5m votes were counted from around the world for this year's competition.
Berry set pulses racing when she emerged from the sea in a bikini, Ursula Andress-style, in 'Die Another Day'.
