Scarlett is sexiest

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson is happy to have earned a second Sexiest Woman Alive title as it will help her "hustle".

The 28-year-old actress first received the accolade from Esquire magazine in 2006 and has now clinched the title again.

She has given an interview to the publication to mark the honour and appears on the cover, wearing just a small pair of knickers and a tight vest.

"I'm the only woman to win it twice, right?" she queried.

"You know, I gotta hustle. I'm a twenty-eight-year-old woman in the movie business, right? Pretty soon the roles you're offered all become mothers. Then they just sort of stop. I have to hedge against that with work - theatre, producing, this thing with Esquire... Sounds pretty bloodless, I guess."

Scarlett recently confirmed her engagement to Romain Dauriac, who is an advertising executive. She touched on their romance, hinting it is nothing like she has experienced in the past, adding she enjoys knowing her fiancé is protective of her.

"You're never free of the irrational, so you might as well — Oh, I don't know. Like, it's OK to be jealous, for example, which people think is irrational. To let yourself care that much that the emotion might hurt you a little," she said.

"Look, I'm with a Frenchman. I think jealousy comes with the territory. 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?"

The blonde star was previously married to Ryan Reynolds, who she split from in 2010. Although she has only ever said good things about the actor, Scarlett implies her new relationship is a lot more fulfilling.

"I didn't think I was a jealous person until I started dating my current, my one-and-only," she explained. "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."

Leo:

You feel optimistic and for good reason. An admirer has been trying to win your heart. All this attention is flattering. If you're single, keep playing hard to get. The more you resist, the more they'll persist. Are you already in a relationship? Start pursuing a cherished dream. Fulfilling your heart's desire will make you a better partner and friend. Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
