JENNIFER Lawrence has been voted the world's most desirable woman.

The 22-year-old 'The Hunger Games' star has been awarded the title in a new international poll released on Tuesday (11.12.12) by online men's magazine AskMen.com after enamouring the majority of the 2.4 million voters with her down-to-earth attitude.

Editor-In Chief James Bassil said: "Overall, there's a sense that she's a little more authentic than other actors.

"She's fresh because we haven't seen her all over the gossip pages for the past three or four years."

The blonde beauty was followed in the top five by actress Mila Kunis, model Kate Upton, Rihanna and actress Emma Stone.

Last year's winner 'Modern Family' star Sofia Vergara slipped to 12th place.

Other well known names to make the list included a number of beauties over the age of 40 including US First Lady Michelle Obama, 48, comedian Sarah Silverman, 42, and British actress Rachel Weisz, 42.

Jennifer has been dating British actor Nicholas Hoult, 22, since they met on the set of 2011's 'X-Men: First Class' and she doesn't want them to become a celebrity couple.

Jennifer previously said: "You don't want your relationship to be in the press, but at the same time - and this is only a theory - the more you try and keep it secret, the more the media tries to crack it open.

"Maybe there's less pressure if you admit you are dating. Admitting that is just an experiment. I'm going to see how it goes."
