Scarlett Johansson Named Playboy's Sexiest Celeb

Posted Wednesday February 21, 2007 6:43 PM GMT

Scarlett Johansson has beaten out a list of deserving beauties to top Playboy's annual 25 Sexiest Celebrities list.

The 22-year-old actress' "sensuality" and "beauty" saw off stiff competition from Angelina Jolie, Beyonce Knowles and Jessica Alba.

The adult magazine writes: "Scarlett Johansson is the apex of beauty and sensuality - from her porcelain skin to her fully feminine figure to her mysterious charisma, which is at once palpable and indefinable."

While the magazine makes it clear that Scarlett is their sexiest woman, the magazine did not assign rankings to the 24 other starlets who made up the list. This surely helps the magazine to reduce the chance of bitterness or conflict among the women over rankings.

Other names to make it onto the sexy list include Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton, Carmen Electra and Pamela Anderson.

Meanwhile, Scarlett is rumored to be the front-runner to play adult movie superstar Jenna Jameson in a movie adaptation of her autobiography, 'How To Make Love Like A Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale.'

Jenna, 32, was heard showing her admiration for The Prestige actress last month.

The adult film star said: "We're looking at Scarlett Johansson. She's my choice. I think she's beautiful."
