Actress Scarlett Johansson has been named Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire magazine for the second time since 2006, and she is the only woman to earn the title more than once.

She was the star of "Don Jon," opposite of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and the Marvel Avengers franchise. Johansson was first named Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive in 2006.

She told Esquire that while her movie career is bustling, things could change for her in a few years.

"You know, I gotta hustle," Johansson told Esquire. "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. Sounds pretty bloodless, I guess."

Actress Mila Kunis was Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive last year.

Johansson is currently dating French journalist Romain Dauriac after divorcing actor Ryan Reynolds.

She says jealousy "comes with the territory" with a Frenchman but she prefers being with someone "who's a little jealous," according to CBS. 

"I didn't think I was a jealous person until I started dating my current, my one-and-only. 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," she said.

Other stars who have been deemed sexiest in years past include Angelina Jolie (2004), Jessica Biel (2005), Charlize Theron (2007), Halle Berry (2008), Kate Beckinsale (2009), Minka Kelly (2010), singer Rihanna (2011).

Johansson just finished a run on Broadway in March in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." She is currently filming the action flick "Lucy" with Morgan Freeman, replacing Jolie.

Johansson will reprise her role as Natasha Romanoff/The Black Widow in at least two more Marvel films – "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," due out in April, and "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," expected to be released in 2015.

Born in New York City, she has a twin brother, Hunter Johansson. She began her acting career in 1994, making her debut in the comedy "North."
