Almost certainly because she topped the list of FHM's readers poll of 100 sexiest women, over the last 24 hours I've gotten about 3000 Google hits from people searching for photos of Scarlett Johansson.
Since pictures of Scarlett are all over the internet, I'm guessing that these Scarlett fans are looking for photos of her nude and they keep landing here because the pictures I've posted of her are in a post called There are no naked pictures in this post.
Imagine their disappointment---or, if they are men and women of taste who know that sometimes clothed is sexier than naked, their pleasant surprise---when the picture that keeps turning up is this one.
As Nancy Nall is wont to say, nice gams.
I've been accused here of having a thing for Scarlett. Really, I don't. I was innoculated against her charms a long time ago by having dated her near lookalike back in high school. It might be true that I have a thing for the memory of my old girlfriend, who was beautiful and had nice gams too, except that remembering her means remembering a time in my life about which I have decidely mixed feelings. Looking at Scarlett Johansson brings back memories of a time when I was young, stupid, and inept around girls and this is not fun.
So while I recognize, respect, and admire Scarlett's beauty and talent, I do it from a safe distance.
Anyway, as you all know, my heart belongs to Uma.
Objectively, though, Scarlett wouldn't top my list, and looking over the poll's top 10 vote-getters, I see only two who'd make my own Top 10, Halle Berry and Teri Hatcher.
Angelina Jolie is a goddess and I remember enough about Greek mythology to know to steer clear of goddesses.
At any rate, let's take our own poll right here. Sexiest Movie Stars. Who are your Top 5? Male and/or female? Feel free to make separate lists or mix and match.
I'm going with Uma, Halle, and Teri, to start. I'll be back later with numbers 3, 4, and 5. I need to take some time to give it serious thought.
Ok, I need to take some time to enjoy giving it serious thought.
