According to an international poll released on Tuesday by the website AskMen. Jennifer Lawrence was named as the “Most Desirable Woman of 2013”
“The Hunger Games” star rose to the top of the list from No. 47 last year on the heels of the box-office smash while buffing her credibility as a quirky, sex-mad young widow in the independent film “Silver Linings Playbook,” AskMen editor in chief James Bassil said.
“Overall, there’s a sense that she’s a little more authentic than other actors,” Bassil said, adding that the public still knows too little about the 22-year-old actress to form a negative opinion.
“She’s fresh because we haven’t seen her all over the gossip pages for the past three or four years,” Bassil said.
Lawrence bumped last year’s winner, Sofia Vergara of “Modern Family” fame, down to No. 12, while reality star Kim Kardashian plummeted to No. 98.
The poll surveyed 2.4 million readers asking them to vote on which celebrity they would choose as a prospective partner, according to the website, which is a unit of News Corp. The top 99 are then compiled into the annual poll.
Rounding out the top five were actress Mila Kunis, model Kate Upton, R&B star Rihanna and “Crazy, Stupid, Love” actress Emma Stone.
