You know what? There are a lot of other choices one could make, and I’m not even sure who I would choose for such an “honor” (Karen Gillan? Sarah Rafferty? Christina Hendricks? What? I like redheads), but I can’t complain with the choice of Elisha Cuthbert, who fits the magazine’s demo, and belongs to a hilarious television show, Happy Endings, that could use all the promotion it can get. Would it have been better if she, Casey Wilson, and Eliza Coupe were ALL given the honor and featured in a Alison Brie/Gilian Jacobs style threesome pillow fight? Sure. But we take what we can get.
Cuthbert, naturally, was “thrilled,” when asked by US Magazine about the award.
“To think that one person could be the most beautiful when there’s Kaley Cuoco, Sofia Vergara, Zooey Deschanel? They’re all stunning,” says Cuthbert, who has appeared on Maxim’s cover three times before. “I’m not gonna fight anyone about it, though. I’ll accept it with grace. But being on a show with two other beautiful women [Casey Wilson and Eliza Coupe], this is gonna make going to work very uncomfortable. I don’t know, this might be a curse.”
Alright, alright. Let’s skip to the cover already.
A one piece? Well, that’s novel. Now, where’s our GIF-appropriate reaction?
Nope, nope: Definitely going to need another GIF to properly celebrate this occasion.
One more? Sure!
Now let’s wash it all down with some ribs.
