Not too many surprises here: Esquire magazine’s Sexiest Woman Alive is Scarlett Johansson, who previously won the award in 2006 when she was 21. She’s the first woman to win the award twice.
The star of the recently released Joseph Gordon-Levitt vehicle Don Jon and The Avengers knows that her time with the crown is probably running out.
“I’m a 28-year-old woman in the movie business, right?” Johansson told Esquire. “Pretty soon the roles you’re offered all become mothers. Then they just sort of stop. I have to hedge against that with work, theater, producing, this thing with Esquire.”
The actress is currently engaged to former French journalist Romain Dauriac after splitting with actor Ryan Reynolds in 2011, who she had been married to since 2008. She knows the territory that comes with a relationship with a Frenchman: copious amounts of body hair. Or rather, jealousy.
“I think jealousy comes with the territory,” she told the magazine. “But I’d rather be with someone who’s a little jealous than someone who’s never jealous. There’s something a little dead fish about them. A little depressing. It may not make sense, but you need to feel a little.”
Look for the Sexiest Woman Alive in next year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
