Hollywood actress Mila Kunis has been named the "Sexiest Woman Alive" by men's magazine Esquire in their November issue that was out this week.
The 29-year-old star, who appeared on the cover page magazine's latest issue wearing just a black leather pant, replaced last year's winner Rihanna.
"If I wanted to charm the pants off you, I could. I think that if I bought into the hype, I would lose all sight of who I am, and so much of who I am is what my parents went through and instilled in me. And I never want to lose that. Ever. Because I would be so disappointed if I didn't make them proud," Kunis said.
The "Friends With Benefits" actor, who is rumoured to be dating Ashton Kutcher, was lauded by Esquire on its website as "the most beautiful, opinionated, talkative, and funny movie star that we've all known since she was nine."
"Or as she might say (and did), 'If I wanted to charm the pants off you, I could.' She talks like that and she looks like that, even when she's really not trying hard at all," the magazine reports.
Although, the one-time star of the TV comedy "That '70s Show" is happy to receive the honour, the actress said that she doesn't take her pin-up status too sincerely.
"What I do and who I am are two different things. And they always will be," Kunis told the publication during an interview.
"What happens with people is they lose sight of who they are, and they become either who they want to be or who they are perceived to be. But whatever it is, it is no longer who they are. So much of who you are in this industry is based on what that critic says, what that director says, what that actor says. People start believing all that, and they become what everybody else wants them to be," she said.
When the magazine asked the "Black Swan" actress if she thinks she's funny, she replied saying, "I think I stumbled upon doing funny things, but I'm not funny. I just know how to deliver a joke."
After replacing Rihanna this year for the "sexiest woman alive" title, Kunis joined the list of Esquire magazine past winners including Oscar winners Charlize Theron and Halle Berry.
