Scarlett Johansson Beats Sharapova for Sexiest Award
by Sean Randall | March 28th, 2006, 12:06 pm

The two Marias, Kirilenko and Sharapova. But Johansson hotter?News just in is that Scarlett Johansson was named by FHM readers as the sexiest woman in the world. The new Hollywood “It” girl beat out tennis diva Maria Sharapova, who finished No. 8 in the mag’s rankings.

“One of the best things for a woman to hear is that she is sexy. I’d like to thank FHM’s readers for the huge compliment,” Johansson apparently said after learning of the honor.

For her part, Sharapova has already reached No. 1 on the WTA Tour, and has a Wimbledon title along with the most cash of any female athlete in the world. So I’m probably correct in saying she doesn’t care a whole hell of a lot. Come to think about it, who does?

As for the rest of the list, Brad Pitt girl Angelina Jolie slipped out of the top position to No. 2. Ranked third was Jessica Alba; at four Jessica Simpson; No. 5 was Kiera Knightley; six Halle Berry; seven somehow went to Jenny McCarthy; eight of course was Ms. Sharapova; Carmen Electra grabbed No. 9 and earning the final Top 10 spot was Teri Hatcher.ADHEREL

According to magazine Editor in Chief Scott Gramling, Johansson in part due to “her sultry voice and striking beauty.” Um, okay, whatever you say Scott.

At this time last year in the rankings, Johansson – no relation to Thomas or Joachim at least that I know of – was ranked No. 9 by the magazine while Sharapova just missed out on the year-end FHM championships finishing 19th.

For some inexplicable reason, Maria Kirilenko was again left off the list making me wonder who really reads that mag!

manga Says:

watched sharapova play kirilenko and i thought the latter was more appealing to the eye.

fanofall Says:

really, sharapova is a huge bitch. she used to be hot but now she looks like @##. who knows whats she gonna look like 15 years from now on ( unthinkable)- prob. a fat russian nanny-style bitch with a lousy body. others russians like kirilenko or dementieva are all better than her.

aadi Says:

u guys are not males! sharapova is way too hotter and sexier than kirilenko.sharapova is feminine and kirilenko is more a male like physice

mark Says:

who is aadi.agree with u man, sharapova is sweeter and feminine while kirilenkos facew and body are a bit masculine!

usho Says:

actually i saw both girls playing live and must admit sharapova is way too hotter than kirilenko. sharapovas sweat makes ur heart melt man

Dean Says:

Since this has turned into a Sharapova-Kirilenko debate, I have to say that Kirilenko is much better looking. Those of you saying that Kirilenko looks like a man are out of your minds. Between the two, Sharapova is far more manly. I watched their match against each other, and Kirilenko definitely wins the looks category.

robert zuckschwerdt Says:

Sharapova reminds me of a mad russian, she says Putin her idol, she should play him, make her money in Russia.

Dododo Says:

Sharapova is nothing special, she has some looks, but no charisma at all.. Behaves like a bitch, and her facial expression is always angry… like someone just kicked her!

philly karl Says:

She plays slower than Nadal, as if that were possible.
