Surprise, surprise.

Hollywood beauty Jennifer Lawrence has landed at the top of FHM's list of "The 100 Sexiest Women in the World," the British publication revealed Wednesday.

"The past 12 months have seen Jennifer's career rocket off into the stratosphere," the magazine wrote when listing reasons for Lawrence's No. 1 position, which include her popularizing the pixie cut, starring in the "Hunger Games" sequel and photo-bombing Taylor Swift's interview with Ryan Seacrest at the Golden Globes.


Lawrence has previously appeared on the covers of magazines like Vogue, Marie Claire, Glamour, Elle, Rolling Stone and Time.

The 23-year-old "American Hustle" actress is currently dating her "X-Men: First Class" co-star Nicholas Hoult. The couple will appear together in the upcoming sequel, "X-Men: Days of Future Past," due out May 23.

Coming in at No. 2 on the sexiest women list was English soap actress Michelle Keegan, who was also declared the "Sexiest Woman in the U.K."

"I'm totally taken back by this, it really does mean a lot," read a statement from Keegan. "Thank you so much to the readers of FHM and everyone who took the time and voted for me, I'm so flattered. I believe that being 'sexy' isn't wearing lots of heavy make-up or having the perfect hair or figure, it's about self confidence, being comfortable with yourself, smiling and being happy!"

Rihanna, Emily Ratajkowski and CBS' "The Big Bang Theory" cast member Kaley Cuoco rounded out the top 5.
