Olivia Wilde, the actress, who plays Thirteen (Dr. Hadley) on the Fox medical drama House, is No. 1 on Maxim’s 2009 Hot 100 list, featured in the magazine’s June issue, on newsstands this week.
Maxim editors write: We may not know a McDreamy from a McNugget, but when it comes to TV doctors, there is only one who makes our body temperature rise. The pulse-quickening internist played by Olivia Wilde on House, M.D. is named Thirteen (which we presume is out of 10) and has a terminal illness that causes her to dabble in drugs and casual sex. (That’s how we want to go!) But we were drooling over this N.Y.C. native long before she was injected into Fox’s hit medical drama….
“I’m considered sexy even though I’m wearing a lab coat every day and seen as a doctor on TV. That really says something. Playing someone who is not defined by her looks and being considered hot, that really makes me feel good,” Olivia said, still beaming over her spot on this year’s list.
Here’s how the rest of the Top 10 rounded out:
2. Megan Fox
3. Bar Refaeli
4. Malin Akerman
5. Mila Kunis
6. Eliza Dushku
7. Adriana Lima
9. Jordana Brewster
10. Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Who might be the most surprising woman on the list? Michelle Obama, Maxim editor Joe Levy says. She comes in at No. 93. Why does she make the cut? “Her accomplishments, her fashion sense, her triceps,” Levy says. “We merely want to acknowledge that the overall package is one of remarkable beauty, intelligence and talent.”
Let us know what you think of this year’s list.
