Lindsay Lohan is the "hottest" woman on the planet. The Georgia Rule actress finished top in Maxim magazine's annual 'Hot 100' poll, ahead of Jessica Alba in second, and Scarlet Johansson in third. Maxim editor-in-chief Jimmy Jellinek said: "There is no other star in the world who causes more of a stir in the public eye than Lindsay. Her every move is watched and reported on."
Jellinek claims his readership is "obsessed" with Lohan, who was last week pictured enjoying a romantic holiday in the Bahamas with womanising model Calum Best. Lindsay, 20, was delighted to finish first, saying: "I couldn't be more flattered to be honoured as the No. 1 girl in Maxim's Hot 100 list!" The 'Hot 100' is a list made up by editors to reflect the yearly impact of beautiful women in the world of film, TV, music, sports and fashion.
Jellinek revealed the list focuses on the promise of greater things to come in the following year. The top ten also featured Christina Aguilera, Jessica Biel and Rihanna. Eva Longoria, who held the crown for the past two years, slipped to ninth position. Angelina Jolie and Beyonce Knowles only managed to make the top twenty, while Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Jennifer Aniston failed to make the cut.
Ashlee and Jessica Simpson are both on the list at 16 and 41, respectively. Maxim has been running its 'Hot 100' list for eight years. Previous winners include Jennifer Garner, Jessica Alba and Christina Aguilera.
