“The Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence has topped men’s magazine FHM’s 2014 Sexiest Women poll.

The Oscar-winning actress beats out British beauty Michelle Keegan on the newly-released top 100.

Ashton Kutcher’s pregnant fiancée Mila Kunis, who topped the list last year, falls to sixth place, while Rihanna, Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines video co-star Emily Ratajkowski and Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco complete this year’s top five.

Beyoncé makes a big leap from last year’s 19 to seven, and British reality TV star Lucy Mecklenburgh, Nicole Scherzinger and Scarlett Johansson round out the top 10.

Meanwhile, embattled celebrity chef Nigella Lawson has been given something to smile about as she fights to win back her reputation following a drug scandal at the end of last year – she becomes the oldest woman to make the list at No. 21.
