Sexiest but she doesn't care

Sexiest but she doesn't care
Actress Jennifer Lawrence.

We can just picture Jennifer Lawrence's reaction upon finding out that she has just been named FHM magazine's Sexiest Woman In The World this year.

Classic JLaw would probably see the US actress pulling a face - an exaggerated grimace in disgust and plenty of dramatic eye-rolling, with a trademark snarky comment thrown in for good measure.

Yes, that would have been her way of saying "thank you" - or rather, "no thank you" - for the title.

In case you are wondering, FHM didn't even manage to cajole a single quote out of her regarding topping the annual list.

That's how much she cares about, or wants, it.

After all, Hollywood's current It girl has never been one to conceal her disdain for the industry's obsession with sex appeal, skinny figures and stunning looks.

As for being labelled sexy, the 23-year-old star of The Hunger Games admitted in the past that the mere thought makes her "queasy".

Compared to past FHM Sexiest winners such as Mila Kunis (2013), Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (2011), Megan Fox (2008) and Jessica Alba (2007), Lawrence does come across as a strange fit.

She is not one for revealing red-carpet gowns or provocative come-hither poses in bikinis or lingerie on magazine covers, unlike others on this year's Top 10 list, such as pop stars Rihanna and Beyonce.

And when she does make that one almost- naked appearance - smeared in blue body paint as shape-shifting blue-skinned mutant Mystique in the X-Men movies - the word "sexy" is not one that comes to mind.

Rather, she is powerful, witty and real, both on and off screen.

Forget traditional sexiness.

Here are five reasons why the Oscar-winning star is smokin' in our books.
