Esquire magazine has named Scarlett Johansson the “Sexiest Woman Alive” for 2013.

The 28-year-old “Don Jon” star is the only person to earn the title twice, having first scored the crown back in 2006.

A couple of other related “seconds”: Johansson, who in the seven years since her first win has married and divorced Ryan Reynolds, is now gearing up for wedding No. 2 to French former journalist Romain Dauriac.

She is also the second Jewish actress to be named “sexiest” something this year. The first was Mila Kunis, who earned the No. 1 spot on FHM’s “Sexiest Women In the World” list this past spring. (ScarJo trailed far behind at No. 49.)

Which leaves us to wrestle with whether it’s okay to feel some Jewish pride while also completely opposing the objectification of women. We’ll get back to you on that one.
