TO 2.4million men, Jennifer Lawrence is the sexiest woman in the world – but to millions more, she is Jennifer Who?
Jennifer, 22, hit the top spot in the survey organised by website AskMen after appearing in the film The Hunger Games this year and is set to earn an Oscar nomination for her performance in latest movie Silver Linings Playbook. Among all 99 women there are only a few who are household names, such as Rihanna, Cheryl Cole and the Duchess of Cambridge.
The American actress has just topped a global poll of the planet’s 99 most desirable women, though many on the list are virtual unknowns in Britain.
Lawrence bumped last year’s winner, Sofia Vergara of “Modern Family” and 32F bra fame, down to No. 12, while reality star Kim Kardashian nearly bottomed out at No. 98.
In a tally of more than 2.4 million international votes for the site’s annual list of the “Top 99 Most Desirable Women,” The Hunger Games star unseated Vergara, who was previously named the Most Desirable Woman of 2012. Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively won in 2011, while Emmanuelle Chriqui took the No.1 spot in 2010 and Eva Mendes in 2009.
Every baby is born with certain fundamental truths in mind: Loud noises are scary, you love your Mom, and Jennifer Lawrence is really attractive. AskMen UK decided to reinforce the validity of one of these statements in a poll of 175,000 gents. Can you guess which one?
But, just as we were happily skipping along, enjoying this newly bestowed honor on the behalf of one of our favorite stars, we realized: She didn’t actually top the list. Arguably one of the biggest stars of 2012, Lawrence is also joined by breakout beauty Kate Upton, Mila Kunis, Emma Watson, and Rihanna, to name a few. But none of those hotties were number one. That vote of confidence went to…drum roll…Holly Willoughby. Wait, who?
