Scarlett's Sexiest Looks
Scarlett Johansson at her best!
Don’t hate her ’cause she’s beautiful.

Scarlett Johansson is a drop-dead stunner — but that comes with its downsides. The Avengers actress recently lamented her good looks for keeping her from landing coveted roles.

“That has happened to me before,” the star said of losing out on a parts for being a pretty face. “That’s always an unfortunate thing… I would imagine when casting someone, you would want to challenge yourself in some way. It is so interesting to see actors transform. There are certainly plenty of times when I am definite not sexy.”

And ScarJo is not the only Hollywood head-turner who has bemoaned her beauty.

Megan, Halle, Charlize, Angelina — one is more gorgeous than the next.

While their out-of-this-world physical perfection leaves men drooling and woman dripping with envy, these leading ladies sometimes see their picture-perfect appearance as a hindrance.

From fighting for roles to obscuring their lovely looks, these A-list actresses have toiled long and hard to be known as more than a knockout.

What do you think of their comments on beauty — ridiculous or refreshing?
