Guess Who's on the World's Sexiest Women List (Hint: They're Jewish)

Not every Jewish mother would get naches from seeing her daughter in FHM magazine, but who can avoid feeling tribal pride in the fact that, of the 100 women listed in the mag's latest "Official 100 Sexiest Women In The World 2014" list, 10 are nice Jewish girls?

Not only that, but the Jewish winners snagged three out of the top 10 (or 33 percent) spots, which confirms, as Jewish Business News put it, that "you really can have a sexy Jewish girlfriend, and wife too, all in the same package after all."

Topping the Jewish list, in fourth place, is actress and model Emily Ratajkowski, the star of the controversial "Blurred Lines" music video by Robin Thicke. The American Ratajkowski is of Polish-Jewish descent on her mother’s side. Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is in first place.

In sixth place is actress Mila Kunis, who took first place in last year's list. Born in the Ukraine, Kunis moved to the United States with her family when she was seven. She is expecting her first child with partner Ashton Kutcher.

At number 10 is actress Scarlett Johansson, the evergreen Jewish favorite who won kudos over the past year for standing up to criticism of her advertising contract with SodaStream.

Rachel Riley, presenter of the British TV show "Countdown," is in 17th place; chef Nigella Lawson, by far the oldest woman on the list at 54, is in 21st place; actress Alison Brie is 39th and English model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is number 61.

Surprisingly, our own Bar Refaeli only makes 66th place on the list, which many Israelis will regard as a travesty. She is followed by American actress Dianna Agron, who is ranked 84th, and Israeli actress Gal Gadot, star of "The Fast and the Furious," in 97th place.

Not a bad day's work for the tribe.
