Scarlett Johansson's hourglass figure and plum movie roles have brought
her many fans. Among them, clearly, the editors at Esquire. The magazine has just crowned her
"Sexiest Woman Alive."
The 21-year-old actress poses in come-hither garb on the cover and
inside pages of the magazine's November issue, on newsstands Oct. 18.
On the cover, she wears a bra and a white Calvin Klein mini-dress;
In a series of photos inside, she wears cleavage-baring black lingerie
paired with an open white robe, among other get-ups.
Johansson, whose screen credits include "The Black Dahlia," "Lost in
Translation" and "Match Point," says she would rather be admired for
attributes other than sex appeal.
"What about my brain? What about my heart? What about my kidneys and my
gallbladder?" she asks, addressing all the hoopla about her curves in an
interview in the magazine.
She is no stranger to the paparazzi's cameras, and once flashed a sign
proclaiming, "the person taking this picture is harrassing me."
"Apparently I spelled `harass' wrong," she recalls. "It was horrible. I
couldn't remember whether it was one `r' or two, and I asked like four
people, and they said two."
