Playboy's sexiest celebs: Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson and... Tara Reid?

pb-reid-portman-gi.jpgWe have it on good authority that the April issue of Playboy is dedicated to its annual "Sexiest Celebrities" list. The mag's editors list 27 women -- actresses, singers, reality TV stars, models and even  a UFC ring girl -- who they believe "exude the radiance of experienced women who remain on top of their game."

Natalie Portman will be glad to learn she made the list. No doubt, she'll want to save the issue next to her best actress Oscar. Also included: "True Blood's" Anna Paquin, perennial  listee Halle Berry, Beyonce and Scarlett Johansson.

But the A-listers are outnumbered by reality stars like Kim Kardashian and "Jersey Shore's" Jenni "J-WOWW" Farley. At least three Playboy Playmates made the cut.

And then there's "American Pie" alumna and sometime party girl Tara Reid. And that's when we start questioning the whole premise.
