Scarlett Johansson named sexiest woman alive in Esquire poll

Scarlett Johansson celebrates her sexiest woman alive title for the second year


Scarlett Johansson has been named the sexiest woman alive, seven years after first bagging the title in Esquire magazine’s annual poll.

The Avengers star celebrated her second top spot in sultry style, covering the American publication's new November issue.

Accompanied by a series of seductive, stripped down shots (cue a selection of silky lingerie), Scarlett justifies her sexiest ranking in effortless fashion.

A lady in love, Scarlett recently confirmed her engagement to French journalist, Romain Dauriac, which follows her previous marriage to fellow Hollywood heartthrob, Ryan Reynolds.

Talking about her relationship with Romain, she said, "Look, I'm with a Frenchman. I think jealousy comes with the territory.

"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 bit depressing. It may not make sense, but you need to feel it a little.”

Adding, "I didn't think I was a jealous person, until I started dating my current, my one-and-only. I think maybe in the past I didn't have the same kind of investment. Not that I liked my partner less, I just wasn't capable of it or caring that much."

Something tells us life is pretty sweet for Scarlett right now.
