It took her seven long years. Seven painful, miserable, torturous years, but Scarlett Johansson, 28, finally has returned to her rightful place atop Esquire's "Sexiest Woman Alive" list. She's the only woman to wear the crown twice.

Scar-Jo, who split with Ryan Reynolds in 2010, plans to take French journalist man Romain Dauriac as her second (and one hopes, last) husband.

"I didn't think I was a jealous person," she tells Esquire, "until I started dating my current, my one-and-only. I think maybe in the past I didn't have the same kind of investment. Not that I liked my partner less, I just wasn't capable of it or caring that much." Take that, Ryan!

Is Scar-Jo too old?

Esquire's sexiest woman alive (in all the known universe) seems to think she's entering her twilight years. At least when it comes to Hollywood.

"You know, I gotta hustle. I'm a twenty-eight-year-old woman in the movie business," Scar-Jo tells the mag. "Pretty soon the roles you're offered all become mothers. Then they just sort of stop. I have to hedge against that with work - theater, producing, this thing with Esquire." Adds the aged matron, "Sounds pretty bloodless, I guess."

T.R. Knight weds bf

Former Grey's Anatomy star T.R. Knight, 40, who came out officially as a gay American man in 2008, has wed his longtime bf, Us Weekly reports. Grey's alumna Katherine Heigl attended, so we know everything was wonderful. Knight is a man who prizes his privacy, so it's no surprise that the media don't have his husband's full name. He's known only as Patrick.

Knight currently stars as Mercutio in an Off-Broadway production of Romeo and Juliet.

New love for Jodie Foster?

Oscar winner and general awesome person Jodie Foster, 50, is "quietly dating" photographer and L Word actor Alexandra Hedison, 44, says E! News. Hedison, whose dad David starred in the TV show Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, dated Ellen DeGeneres for three years.

Jackson: No regrets

She may have lost her multimillion-dollar negligence lawsuit against AEG, but Michael Jackson's mum, Katherine Jackson, says she doesn't regret a thing, despite the emotional and financial toll it has taken.

"Any reports that Katherine . . . is feeling remorse for filing the wrongful-death lawsuit are completely untrue," a Katherine Insider tells TMZ.

MJ's mom charged that AEG was negligent in hiring Conrad Murray, who has been convicted of involuntary manslaughter in MJ's death.

Naming Halle's baby
