For the second time in seven years, Scarlett Johansson is Esquire magazine's "Sexiest Woman Alive."
Even though the honor of winning should now be old hat for Johansson, the 28-year-old actress made it a point to fit the magazine into her busy schedule.
"You know, I gotta hustle," Johansson says in Esquire's November issue. "I’m a 28-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.”
Outside of work, Johansson has been settling down with French love Romain Dauriac, who's now her fiancé. Before Dauriac came along, Johansson didn't think she was really the type to get green with envy.
“I didn’t think I was a jealous person until I started dating my current, my one-and-only," she tells Esquire. "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.”
With Dauriac, though, it seems the jealous streak is mutual.
“Look, I’m with a Frenchman," the "Don Jon" actress says. "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 depressing. It may not make sense, but you need to feel a little."
