Jennifer named FHM’s sexiest womanComment on this story
London - Jennifer Lawrence has been crowned the 'Sexiest Woman in the World' by FHM magazine.
The Oscar-winning actress has topped the British men's magazine's annual 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll taking the crown from 2013 winner Mila Kunis, who drops to sixth place.
Jennifer, 23, narrowly beat Michelle Keegan to the accolade, with the stunning 'Coronation Street' star finishing in second place once the thousands of readers' votes counted.
Although she just missed out on the top spot, Michelle - who is engaged to Mark Wright - was still thrilled to finish as runner-up.
Speaking in the new issue of FHM magazine on sale now, the 26-year-old actress saying: "I'm totally taken back by this, it really does mean a lot. Thank you so much to the readers of FHM and everyone who took the time and voted for me, I'm so flattered. I believe that being 'sexy' isn't wearing lots of heavy make-up or having the perfect hair or figure, it's about self-confidence, being comfortable with yourself, smiling and being happy!"
Rounding off the top five are Rihanna in third spot, fourth placed British/American model Emily Ratajkowski - who received worldwide attention after appearing naked in Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' video - and 'Big Bang Theory' actress Kaley Cuoco in fifth.
Other top 10 placed babes include Beyoncé in seventh spot, Nicole Scherzinger in ninth and Scarlett Johansson in tenth.
Notable entries in the list of a hundred women include TV chef Nigella Lawson at number 21, Kate Moss at 42, Jennifer Aniston at 36 and supermodel Cara Delevingne at 54.
