"Scarlett Johansson dethrones Megan Fox as 'Esquire's' Best Looking Woman, not Christina Hendricks."

You know that when you put the names of three very good looking women in your headline you increase the likely hood that you’ll get a lot of hits. What I should have done is make the headline “Megan Fox, Scarlett Johansson and Christina Hendricks Film Nude Lesbian Orgy Scene for Upcoming Film,” however that would be unethical. (Note to editor, please don’t change the title of my post to “Megan Fox, Scarlett Johansson and Christina Hendricks Film Nude Lesbian Orgy Scene for Upcoming Film”).

The truth is, a month or two ago “Esquire” magazine announced Christina Hendricks as 2010’s Best Looking Woman. Check out our article here.

According to www.nydailynews.com, Scarlett Johansson was actually the first choice. “Esquire” editor-in-chief, David Granger admitted that Scarlett was the first choice at a recent magazine conference, but went on to say, “But Scarlett completely screwed us.” Truth is Scarlett’s Broadway commitment prevented her from doing the photo shoot.

I’m sure covers for magazine change all the time. What good does it do throwing Scarlett Johansson under the bus? For one she’s more popular than “Esquire” magazine. Have you seen her in “Iron Man 2?” My God, how about “Match Point?” When I saw “Match Point” I fell forever in love with Scarlett Johansson…my wife doesn’t really care, I don’t think anyways. But I digress. Why would “Esquire’s” editor-in-chief say something like that? He shit on an A list celebrity and then inadvertently belittled Christina Hendricks, the reigning Best Looking Woman.

By the way have you been to www.esquire.com lately? There are two sections for the Women We Love gallery. One of the sections is in left/center of the page with picture of Angelina Jolie naked, covering herself with a sheet. In the top left corner is the other section with none other than Scarlett Johansson. It’s pretty annoying listening to this guy basically say he’s disappointed with Christina Hendricks as his Best Looking Woman cover. It doesn’t matter who’s better looking between the two, Scarlett was in “Iron Man 2” and that’s what Dave probably wanted a piece of.

Who is the best looking? That’s subjective, that’s like asking who is a better singer, Adam Lambert or Kris Allen. I’d say who cares, but apparently a lot of people care…seriously check out the comments on that story/headline; it’s crazy.

That was two seasons ago and people still care, but again I got off topic. I’ve never seen “Mad Men,” so I don’t really know who Christina Hendricks is, but God bless her she is the Best Looking Woman at “Esquire” magazine, so let’s not take that away from her just because David Granger couldn’t keep his big mouth shut.
