Playboy magazine sure is taking some big risks these days. Last year, Jessica Alba was Playboy's #1, and this year Playboy chose Scarlett Johansson as their sexiest celebrity of the year. Yeah, not ground-breaking choices, but it's better than Sports Illustrated putting Beyonce on the cover of the Swimsuit Issue. The Sun has Playboy's statement on why Scarlett Johansson was chosen this year:
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.
Of course, Scarlett was not the only name on the list, though the 24 other names are listed in no particular. I've listed them in alphabetical order, because I'm anal like that:
Angelina Jolie, BeyoncÃ© Knowles, Carmen Electra, Charisma Carpenter, Christina Aguilera, Cindy Margolis, Denise Richards, Diora Baird, Jaime Pressly, Jenna Jameson, Jennifer Lopez, Jenny McCarthy, Jessica Alba, Joanna Krupa, Kara Monaco, Kelly Monaco, Lindsay Lohan, Mansion Playmates Holly, Bridget and Kendra, Mercedes McNab, Pamela Anderson, Paris Hilton, Pussycat Dolls, Vida Guerra, Willa Ford
So, does any of this matter? No, not at all. It's just another meaningless list in a long line of meaningless lists. I mean, It's not like we actually have Scarlett posing nude in Playboy, after all. Though there was that time Scarlett Johansson said she'd go nude for a movie...
Anyway, here's some photographic evidence of why Scarlett was chosen. More Scarlett Johansson pictures after the jump.
