Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar-winning actress of "Silver Linings Playbook," the "Hunger Games" franchise, and "American Hustle," has been named by FHM as their top pick of "Sexiest Women in the World" for 2014.
Access Hollywood reported (via Yahoo News) May 1 that the men's magazine's latest annual poll to find the "Sexiest Women in the World" saw last year's list-topper, actress Mila Kunis, unseated as sexiest. Oh, she's still considered one of the top ten sexiest in the world, though, because she only dropped five places to No. 6 on FHM's list of 100.
But Jennifer Lawrence, who has been on an amazing roll since landing the lead as Katniss Everdeen in "The Hunger Games." She had come to Hollywood's attention with her performance in the 2010 independent film "Winter's Bone," a role which garnered her the Breakthrough Performance award from the National Board of Review, not to mention several major and minor award nominations, including an Academy Award nod. After winning the Oscar for Best Actress in 2013 for "Silver Linings Playbook," she was also nominated for Supporting Actress in this year's best film-nominated "American Hustle."
The 23-year-old recently announced that she was taking a break from acting, having filmed several movies in a brief two-year period. Her latest project, "X Men: Days of Future Past," will arrive in theaters at the end of May. She took over the role of Mystique, a character popularized by Rebecca Romijn in the earlier "X Men" movies, in "X Men: First Class."
Jennifer Lawrence beat out British actress Michelle Keegan ("Coronation Street") for the top spot. Internationally famed singer a body barer Rihanna placed third. Model Emily Ratajkowski and actress Kaley Cuoco ("The Big Bang Theory") rounded out the top five.
AskMen.com's "Most Desirable" woman, Emilia Clarke (HBO's "Game of Thrones") made the list as well, placing at No. 11. Lawrence topped the list last year.
