For the second time, Scarlett Johansson has been bestowed the title of Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire mag. She previously won the honor in 2006.
The “Avengers” star, 28, who was married to Ryan Reynolds from 2008 to 2011 and just got engaged to journalist Romain Dauriac, is the first woman to be named sexiest twice by the magazine, which hits newsstands Oct. 15.
“What I want to do right now is sleep late, read the paper,” she told Esquire of her busy 2013, including movies such as “Don Jon” about a porn addict and a stint on Broadway in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”
Johansson knows this might be her last time taking home a title like this because she’s in an industry that ages actresses quite quickly.
“I’m a twenty-eight-year-old woman in the movie business, right?” she said. “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.”
Johansson also gave the magazine a little insight into her sometimes “jealous” relationship.
“I’m with a Frenchman. I think jealousy comes with the territory,” she added. ”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.”
The sex symbol, who broke onto the scene in 2003 with her performance in “Lost in Translation,” added a slight dig at past partner Reynolds, who is remarried to Blake Lively.
“I didn’t think I was a jealous person, until I started dating my current, my one-and-only,” she added. “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.”
