Top model Jennifer Hawkins, a former Miss Universe, was voted the sexiest woman Down Under by the readers of Ralph magazine. However, Gillard laughed at the results, saying that her name on the list was "very unusual". "I'm sure many Australians do read Ralph magazine, but I'm not one of them," News.com.au quoted her, as saying. "I think people don't understand that I am probably two foot shorter than Jennifer Hawkins and double her body weight, so it's been a very unusual result.
"I would simply agree that Jennifer is a very attractive woman," she added.
