Megan_fox"Transformers" star Megan Fox took top honors on the FHM annual 100 Sexiest Women in the World list.

Runners up: Jessica Biel and Jessica Alba (who won last year), followed by Elisha Cuthbert, Scarlett Johansson, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Hilary Duff, Tricia Helfer, Blake Lively and Kate Beckinsale.

Fox’s rise has been slightly meteoric. She debuted on the list in 2006 at No. 68, but moved up to No. 65 in 2007. Jumping 35 spots in a year is quite an achievement.

What changed? The "Transformers" movie gave thousands of teenage boys a chance to see her Angelina Jolie-esque script tattoos: a poem on her ribcage and a Shakespeare-inspired quote on her right shoulder.

"We will all laugh at gilded butterflies"? Maybe it’s taken out of context, but I don’t get it.

Curiously, Angelina Jolie dropped to No. 12 this year. Factor: too many  pregnancies? 

Paris Hilton was a mere No. 77, while her big-bottomed pal Kim Kardashian was No. 17!

What was that crack Paris made about Kim’s sizable rear looking like cottage cheese in a trash bag? How about some ketchup on that cheese, Paris!

But poor Britney Spears was literally at the bottom of the babe barrel at No. 100.

Don’t worry, Brit. There’s no place to go but up!
