For the second time in seven years, actress Scarlett Johansson has been named Esquire magazine’s “Sexiest Woman Alive.” In fact the 28-year-old A-list hottie is the first woman ever to win the magazine’s top honor twice.
How’s she taking it? With a pretty serious dose of perspective.
“You know, I gotta hustle. I’m a twenty-eight-year-old woman in the movie business, right?” Johansson told Esquire interviewer Tom Chiarella. “Pretty soon the roles you’re offered all become mothers. Then they just sort of stop.”

Speaking of roles, Johannson has three of them this year – Barbara Sugarman in the romantic comedy Don Jon (in theaters now), “Samantha” in the yet-to-be-released science fiction romance Her and Laura in the British sci-fi thriller Under The Skin.
Next year Johansson will reprise her role as Natasha Romanov (a.k.a. Black Widow) in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Another Captain America movie will be released the following year.
For those of you keeping score at home, previous Esquire winners include Jessica Biel, Charlize Theron, Halle Berry, Kate Beckinsale, Minka Kelly, Rihanna and Mila Kunis.
