Scarlett Johansson Named GQ‘s Babe Of The Year

Sure, few things are as certain as death and taxes, but we think it’s almost always a sure thing that Scarlett Johansson will be named to someone’s sexiest women of the year list. So it’s little surprise that the actress was crowned GQ’s “Babe of the Year” in the December issue, which hits newsstands November 23.

It has indeed been a big year for Mrs. Ryan Reynolds. Just this weekend, she racked up her third stint as “Saturday Night Live” host (loved the “Millionaire Matchmaker” sketch!), her May superhero release “Iron Man 2″ did gangbusters at the box office, and she scored a Tony for her role in the Broadway play “A View From the Bridge” opposite Liev Schreiber. Did we also mention she made out with Sandra Bullock?

When asked by GQ what it is she loves most about her craft, Scarlett couldn’t quite put it into words. “I don’t know if I can answer it, actually,” she said. “It’s sort of like asking someone what feels good about playing an instrument. It just satisfies some part of you. There’s this indescribable thing that happens when you know that something’s working, a sense of the timing and everything coming together. Also there is the problem-solving part of it that’s interesting. I like taking apart something and trying to figure out what will make this interesting to watch. What’s going to make this…delicious.”

Scarlett’s cover is one of five for the issue; the other four feature a few of GQ’s Men of the Year including James Franco, Drake, Stephen Colbert and Jeff Bridges.
