Men say they appreciate the inner beauty of a woman, but it’s the outer kind that carries the day on Maxim’s new list of the world’s 100 hottest women. It is also evident that for this Maxim’s audience, beauty goes hand in hand with youth. Some of these women are awfully young, but thankfully there’s no jailbait on the list.

For some oglers — we mean, readers — it may be difficult to spot the Jewesses among all the pouting lips, super-deep cleavages and come-hither looks. Not so for the Shmooze. We’ve identified more than a handful of Jewish women who made the cut. The hottest among them is Bar Refaeli, who comes in at the very top spot on the list. In fact, that must be the reason she appears close to naked in the Maxim photo shoot — when you’re that hot, you might just feel the need to shed your clothes.

Hot on Refaeli’s high heels is Mila Kunis in third place. This is not surprising, given that she was recently named Knockout of the Year by GQ.

Joining them on the list are Lea Michele at number 14 and Scarlett Johansson not far behind her in 17th place. Emmy Rossom takes 49th place, with Amanda Bynes in the 59th spot. Kat Dennings barely makes it on to the list, coming in at number 97.

Does all this sexiness go to these women’s heads? Refaeli, the hottest of the hot, says it doesn’t faze her one bit. In an interview with New York magazine, she said: “…I never get used to it, because when I wake up in the morning I put on my baggy jeans and my T-shirt, and I feel not even close to being sexy…I feel I’m sexy when I need to be in front of the camera. I kind of play with it, and I’m very, very confident. But on an everyday basis, I don’t think I’m that sexy at all.”

No, not sexy at all.
