Jennifer Lawrence has inherited the crown of the "Sexiest Women in the World" from Mila Kunis this year.

The men's magazine FHM released their annual list, and the Oscar-winner has won the title because, according to the magazine, she is "so freaking cool".

In addition to her obvious talent and natural beauty, FHM notes the Hunger Games actress's new short do – which is being copied by sweet young things world-wide – and her photo-bomb during Taylor Swift's interview with Ryan Seacrest at the Golden Globes.

"The past 12 months have seen Jennifer's career rocket off into the stratosphere," the magazine wrote about the American Hustle actress.

British actress Michelle Keegan – who stars in Coronation Street – came in second, although she was named "sexiest woman in the UK" by the magazine.

"I'm totally taken back by this, it really does mean a lot," said Keegan in a statement. "Thank you so much to the readers of FHM and everyone who took the time and voted for me, I'm so flattered. I believe that being 'sexy' isn't wearing lots of heavy make-up or having the perfect hair or figure, it's about self confidence, being comfortable with yourself, smiling and being happy!"

Rihanna finished third and model Emily Ratajkowski and Kaley Cuoco rounded out the top five spots.

Last year's winner – and mom-to-beMila Kunis finished sixth this year.

Other names on the list include Beyonce (7), Scarlett Johansson (10), Emilia Clarke (11; she was recently dubbed 'Most Desirable' by AskMen, ironically knocking off Jennifer Lawrence), Katy Perry (12), Emma Stone (20), Taylor Swift (27), Zooey Deschanel (34), Jennifer Aniston (36), Kim Kardashian (38), Selena Gomez (56), Miley Cyrus (79) and Shakira (87).

Past queens of the "Sexiest Women in the World" list include Megan Fox (2008), Jessica Alba (2007), Keira Knightley (2006), Britney Spears (2004), Halle Berry (2003) and Jennifer Lopez (2001 and 2000).
