Not only is the 23-year-old sexy, she is also smart, funny and successful. But she is also taken. JLaw has been dating X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult, on and off, for the past few years.

Lawrence has been outspoken on how much beauty accounts for success in Hollywood, telling Elle back in 2012, "In Hollywood I'm obese. I'm considered a fat actress," she explained. "Today, if anybody even tries to whisper the word 'diet,' I'm like, 'You can go f*** yourself.'"

Although the actress has been nominated for an Academy Award the last two years, her career is still as strong as ever. You can see Lawrence next in Serena, another period piece co-starring Bradley Cooper. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 will be out at the end of the year.

Coming in the number two position on this year's list is British actress Michelle Keegan. The 26-year-old said she is honored to be on the list, but agrees with Lawrence, explaining that being sexy has to do with so much more than being pretty.

"I believe that being 'sexy' isn't wearing lots of heavy makeup or having the perfect hair or figure," Keegan said, according to People. "It's about self-confidence, being comfortable with yourself, smiling and being happy."

Rihanna, Emily Ratajkowski and Kaley Cuoco round out the top 5. Others on the list this year include Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Nicole Scherzinger, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Aniston, Prince Harry’s ex Cressida Bonas, Pippa Middleton and Miley Cyrus.
