Earlier in the year Miley Cyrus was ranked number one in Maxim’s Hot 100 list. But impressive as that may be, Scarlett Johansson has just been named the Sexiest Woman Alive in 2013. In fact, this is the second time that the 28 year-old star has taken the title. The first time was in 2006, when Miley was still only 14 years old and starting out as Hannah Montana. So it looks like Scarlett is officially sexier than Miley, at least according to Esquire magazine.
Even without “blowing Miley out of the water” as being the sexiest gal around who is still breathing, Scarlett has the distinction of winning the title twice. Luckily for Johansson, she may be older than Cyrus, but she hasn’t yet reached 40, when her sexiness, according to the Wrecking Ball singer, will diminish.
Still, Miley has only won the top “hottie” award once and Johansson is the first woman to ever be chosen twice for Esquire’s list. Sadly, for all those “eligible” bachelors out there, Scarlett just got engaged to Romain Dauriac, who is a “former” French journalist.
The Avengers star caught Romain “on the rebound” after she ditched Ryan Reynolds way back in 2010. The actress who plays Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, says that she is very invested in her latest conquest and feels like she cares much more about her new fella.
She told Esquire that although she had been voted the Sexiest Woman Alive, she feels the clock ticking on her career. She said that at her “advanced” age, 28 years-old, that the roles offered her would start narrowing. The actress said that soon all she would be offered would be mother’s roles. If that is the case, then she would be the sexiest mother going. At least sexier than Miley Cyrus if Esquire is to be believed.
Ms Johansson is a brilliant example of a child actor who successfully made the transition to adult actor with a minimum of muss and fuss. Her film debut was at the age of 10 when she appeared in the 1994 film North. She continued to work in the business and got rave reviews with her performance in The Horse Whisperer just four years later when she worked alongside Hollywood legend Robert Redford in 1998.
Scarlett reaffirmed that she was the only woman to be crowned as the sexiest woman alive twice. As well as getting the title, she was put on the magazine’s cover and she had a photoshoot for the periodical. Considering the competition, Johansson did well to win the 2013 gong. Last year Mila Kunis won the title and in 2011, Rihanna waltzed off with the crown.
Scarlett had her phone hacked way back in 2011 and nude photographs of the Black Widow actress were all over the internet. But she moved on from that embarrassing incident, just like she moved on after her divorce from Ryan Reynolds. She won the accolade without having to strip off unlike a certain former Disney star who cannot seem to keep her clothes on.
Watching Scarlett Johansson play the Black Widow in The Avengers, it is easy to see why Esquire says she is sexier than Miley Cyrus, and audiences can see Johansson as the Black Widow again in the 2014 film Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
