Mila Kunis is the sexiest woman on the planet - at least according to Esquire.
The magazine gave Kunis top honors in its annual list of the sexiest women alive, which places her in the company of former winners including Halle Berry, Scarlett Johansson, Charlize Theron and Kate Beckinsale.

Being called the hottest woman in the world is just another title for Kunis, whose exotic beauty and top-notch physique have already earned her plenty rankings. She's been named GQ's 2011 "Knockout of the Year," No. 3 on Maxim's 2012 "Hot 100" list and No. 9 on a similar list in FHM. And while those lists were all tethered to a certain year, Kunis was acknowledged as a timeless beauty when Men's Health magazine called her one of the 100 most beautiful women of all time.
But the "Black Swan" actress said she tries not to let rankings like that go to her head.
"So much of who you are in this industry is based on what that critic says, what that director says, what that actor says. People start believing all that, and they become what everybody else wants them to be," Kunis said. "And I think that I've consciously separated my two lives. I love what I do. I couldn't imagine doing anything else. But when I'm done with work, I'm done with work. I think that if I bought into the hype, I would lose all sight of who I am."
In addition to her beauty, 29-year-old Kunis has also become known for her comedy chops. She rose to fame on the hit sitcom "That '70s Show" (where she met her current boyfriend, Ashton Kutcher), she voices Meg on the cult cartoon show "Family Guy" and she has appeared in big-budget comedy films like "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "Date Night" and "Ted."
But the actress said despite her work in comedy, she is not naturally funny.
"I think I stumbled upon doing funny things, but I'm not funny. I just know how to deliver a joke," she said. "There are people who naturally exude humor and are constantly saying funny things, and there are the people who know how to deliver a joke. It's a learned skill. Through twenty years of doing this, I practice it. I think that the second you think that you're funny is when you stop being funny."
