This just in from the Department of That Makes Sense:
It's not Johansson's first time at this rodeo, either. Seven years ago, at the tender age of 21, she earned the same heady title. But her two-time sexy crown and her other successes are not lost on her.
"You know, I gotta hustle. I'm a 28-year-old woman in the movie business, right?" the "Don Jon" star tells the mag.
"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 former Mrs. Ryan Reynolds (they split in 2010) is experiencing a new type of sexy with current beau Romain Dauriac, to whom she's reportedly engaged. The type where a tinge of jealousy on both sides is part of the bargain.
"Look, I'm with a Frenchman. I think jealousy comes with the territory," she says. "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. I know, irrational, right?"
"I didn't think I was a jealous person," she continues, "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."
Look for Johansson to reprise her sexy Black Widow role next year in
