Minka Kelly is one of Hollywood’s hottest ladies in what’s likely to be one of the fall’s most anticipated new shows, and she’s now officially a Cosmo cover girl in the run up to the debut of Charlie’s Angels.

Kelly, who stars as one of the three bad-guy-whooping Angels in the upcoming NBC redux, graces the cover of the October issue of Cosmopolitan, and while little info is given in the online version of the article, Kelly does talk about her new role — which is quite a departure from her previous and less violent turn in Friday Night Lights. She says of Angels: “I’m excited by the idea of three women kicking ass and taking names.”

The magazine also teases that she explains the reasons behind her recent split from boyfriend Derek Jeter.

The two announced the demise of their relationship in late August after more than three years together.
