Scarlett Johansson has been appointed the Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire magazine. It’s her second time carrying the title since 2006—and the first time for any woman to do so ever—and the reason is obvious: she’s Scarlett Johansson.
The 28-year-old actress dazzles on the November issue cover, but she’s more than just a sight for weary eyes. In the accompanying interview with Tom Chiarella, Scarlett shows readers her vulnerable side, opening up about a number of topics, including jealousy (yes, even the Sexiest Woman ALIVE gets jealous, apparently).
“I didn’t think I was a jealous person until I started dating my current, my one-and-only [Romain Dauriac],” Scarlett said. “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.”
Scarlett stars opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Don Jon, currently in theaters. In the Jersey-based romcom, Scarlett plays Joseph’s sultry love interest, but pushing her 30s, Scarlett feels the clock ticking on her career—or parts of it anyway.
“You know, I gotta hustle, I’m a twenty eight year old woman in the movie business, right?” she said. “Pretty soon the roles you’re offered all become mothers. Then they just stop. I have to hedge against that with work-theater, producing.”
Her insecurities aside, we’re sure this won’t be the last time we see or hear from Scarlett.
