People have varying perceptions on what’s sexy, but for Esquire magazine, Scarlett Johansson has topped the list again.
The “Lost in Translation” and “Avengers” star was named “sexiest woman alive” by Esquire in 2006. Whether it’s the sensuous pout, the unmistakable x factor, the voluptuous curves, or all of these, Hollywood’s sexiest females come under close scrutiny after being hailed as the “sexiest women alive.” Scarlett Johansson was singled out from many beautiful high-profile celebrities oozing with sex appeal and with acting talent to boot. Some of the well-known celebrities who have bagged the title in previous years were Charlize Theron, Kate Beckinsale, Rihanna, and Mia Kunis.
Scarlett often finds herself in the limelight, not just for getting “interesting” movie roles but also for her romantic involvements. The ex-wife of Ryan Reynolds once revealed in an interview that some of the characters she has played – onstage or in movies – strike a chord. The role of Maggie in the Tennessee Williams play “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” is an example. Well, at least some of Maggie’s traits and sentiments – insecurity, unmet expectations from her man, and feisty spirit – happen to be some of the things the alluring actress can identify with. Scarlett has also appeared in the play, “View from the Bridge” by Arthur Miller.
The curvy bombshell who has smoothly transitioned to adult roles says she loves doing good genre flicks. After all, it’s like being transported to another life in a short span of time. For someone who realized that `the world is her oyster’ before she even turned 21, Scarlett has become discerning about the movie offers that have come her way. Yet she had no qualms playing a seductive alien in “Under the Skin” which premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Period film lovers remember her as Mary Boleyn in “The Other Boleyn Girl” while Marvel Comics fans were thrilled with her portrayal of the tough Natasha Romanoff in “The Avengers.”
Johansson has become the face to watch, and global brands like L’Oreal, Calvin Klein, and Louis Vuitton have lost no time in signing her up as endorser. Scarlett has been featured on the covers of various prestigious magazines, including Vanity Fair, Maxim, Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar, to name some. She is often top of mind when pollsters come out with lists of the sexiest or hottest female celebrities in Hollywood. Esquire magazine featured her looking appealingly sexy with tousled locks and wearing a nude tank with an evident black bra coordinated with shorts that flaunted her legs. Actress Angelina Jolie was the first Hollywood celebrity who was adjudged the sexiest woman alive by Esquire in 2004.
As she approaches her 29th birthday, Scarlett Johansson seems to have everything going for her – in her career and in the love department. She appeared in the comedy-drama “Don Jon” and is about to reprise her role as Black Widow in the sequel to Avengers. She has been spotted at red carpet events with French beau Roman Dauriac. Prestigious brands have been scrambling to get her, as sh remains Hollywood’s “It” girl. Scarlett Johansson has everything a girl can possibly wish for. So what else could the lovely and talented native of New York be aiming for? Meatier roles, a noteworthy movie musical, and a happy marriage perhaps?
