The Hype

As she reclines back in this swimsuit we can see why GQ magazine named actress Scarlett Johansson 'Babe of the Year.' The 26 year-old Iron Man 2 star beat out Megan Fox and Blake Livelyto claim the crown.

GQ magazine revealed the reason behind the choice, "At 26, she remains fresh-faced, curious, trying on new moods and outlets of expression as easily as she changes her hair color. This is what we love about Scarlett: that she's game, that she's good, that she can try on all these guises without seeming to try too hard. And all the while still seem genuinely like the observant, inquisitive (and very cute) girl in transition we fell for in Lost in Translation."

Johansson has been starring in films since she was 10 years old. She has starred in blockbusters such as 'Home Alone 3,' 'The Horse Whisperer,' 'Lost in Translation,' 'The Other Boleyn Girl,' and 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona'

Johansson told GQ, "I'm still trying to figure out what to do when I'm not making movies, I just don't do that many things."

Scarlett broke hearts around the world when she married Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds in 2008. The couple currently resides in Los Angeles.

Scarlett is known and loved for her healthy image. She has previously criticized Hollywood for promoting an image that causes unhealthy diets and eating disorders.

"Being ultra-thin is not sexy at all. Women shouldn't be forced to conform to unrealistic and unhealthy body images that the media promote." She told TeenHollywood.
