Elisha Cuthbert is the most beautiful woman on television, but the Canadian actress thinks it’s a “crazy” honor.
Maxim made the big announcement this week, along with the release of its stunning cover featuring the 30-year-old star in a purple swimsuit. (Look closely and you can also spot her giant rock from hockey player fiancé Dion Phaneuf).
“To think that one person could be the most beautiful when there’s Kaley Cuoco, Sofia Vergara, Zooey Deschanel? They’re all stunning. I’m not gonna fight anyone about it, though. I’ll accept it with grace,” Cuthbert told the magazine. “But being on a show with two other beautiful women, this is gonna make going to work very uncomfortable. I don’t know, this might be a curse.”
Curses aside, the Happy Endings star does make a good point. With all the gorgeous faces on the small screen these days, Maxim must have had a tough decision when it came to crowning the most beautiful actress of them all.
In the article, Cuthbert also dished on one of her most famous roles ever: Danielle the porn star in The Girl Next Door.
“To be honest, I think one reason guys liked that characters so much is because I didn’t go fully nude. My character really could be the girl of every guy’s dreams,” she said. “I remember I had a lot of real porn stars tell me I was like their Julia Roberts from Pretty Woman. Nice sentiment but, you know, a little awkward.”
