Second time "Sexiest Woman" is a first for Johansson

Esquire has not only picked Scarlett Johansson as its “Sexiest Woman Alive” — it’s the first time the magazine has named someone for that cover story role for the second time.

The actress first was given that title back in 2006, and now is repeating seven years later. Johansson, who has starred in such films as “Lost in Translation,” “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” and “The Avengers,” recently completed a Broadway run in the revival of Tennessee Williams’ “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”

Currently, she’s in theaters in Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s “Don Jon.”

In the Esquire interview, Johansson said, “I’m the only woman to win twice, right? … 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 — theater, producing; this thing with Esquire.”
