And the 'sexiest woman alive' is...

Actress Mila Kunis has gone topless for the cover of Esquire magazine after editors crowned her the sexiest woman alive.

The 29-year-old Black Swan actress, poses seductively in a pair of skintight trousers, with her back to the camera, for the men's publication's upcoming November issue, but she insists her public persona is much different from who she is in real life.

"What I do and who I am are two different things. And they always will be. 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," she said in an interview with the magazine.

"I think that if I bought into the hype (of fame), 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, who is now dating her former That '70s Show co-star Ashton Kutcher, preserves her modesty on the steamy Esquire cover by covering her bare breasts with her left arm.
