Scarlett Johansson the sexiest woman alive – again.

ScarJo took the top spot in Esquire’s annual Sexiest Woman Alive issue, gracing the cover in stilettos, a tan tank top and tiny maroon shorts.

Inside the issue, Johansson, 28, ruminates on her beauty, saying she knows she has to cash in now as Hollywood is increasingly unfriendly to aging beauties such as herself.

“You know, I gotta hustle. I’m a twenty-eight-year-old woman in the movie business, right?” she told the magazine. “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.”

Johansson, who most recently starred in “Don Jon,” was also named sexiest woman alive by Esquire in 2006, and she is the only woman to nab the title twice. Mila Kunis took home the crown last year, and Rihanna the year before.

The “Avengers” star recently announce her engagement to French journalist Romain Dauriac, and she told Esquire that “jealousy comes with the territory” of being with a Frenchman.

“I didn’t think I was a jealous person,” she continues, “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.”
