Elisha Cuthbert Is ‘TV’s Most Beautiful Woman’, Says Maxim

elisha1 - Elisha Cuthbert Is 'TV’s Most Beautiful Woman', Says Maxim

The story from Us Weekly:

Boob tube beauty! Elisha Cuthbert has been named TV’s most beautiful woman by the editors of Maxim. Wearing a retro swimsuit on the magazine’s March cover, the “Happy Endings” star calls the honor “very flattering.”

“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.”

In addition to her TV roles on “Happy Endings” and “24,” Cuthbert is perhaps best known for playing a porn star in the 2004 movie The Girl Next Door.

“To be honest, I think one reason guys liked that character so much is because I didn’t go fully nude. My character really could be the girl of every guy’s dreams, instead of having them see her naked and going, ‘Oh, that’s not my thing,’” Cuthbert, 30, says. “Remember Weird Science? Kelly LeBrock never got naked. She didn’t show you every­thing. I think that’s why it resonated with more men than it probably should have.”

What do you all think of their choice?

  • I think she’s really pretty and funny in happy endings. Somehow I’ve always imagined her being a tad chubbier than she really is, dunno why?

  • Snip

    She looks great!

  • misscheeks

    Pretty lady, although Maxim doesn these things for publicity, lol I hope nobody takes it too seriously. Just for fun now ;)…if I to make a list of the sexiest women on tv, I’d pick:
    -Morena Baccarin
    -Kiristen Kreuk
    -Taraji P Henderson
    -Mariska Hargitay
    -Archie Panjaby
    -Gina Torres
    -Freema Agyeman
    How bout you guys? 🙂

    • misscheeks


      • Gabriela

        Omg you’re calling other girls sexy?

        • misscheeks

          Haha umm yes! What’s wrong with calling other women “sexy?”

    • ary

      i don’t watch much tv, but i would say Cobie Smulders, Olivia Wilde and Tamara Taylor. Something like that 😛

      • misscheeks

        Ooh Colbie Smulders!! How could I forget about her? her face is just so beautiful! I probably watch too much tv haha. I love her on HIMYM (How I Met Your Mother), I presume you watch it too? Barney is my favourite character and Marshall is like a big teddy bear..I wanna hug him lol.

    • Sidney

      I don’t know about the prettiest since i can never think of anyone on the spot, but i think Morena Baccarin is gorgeous. She always stands out for me in anything she’s in.

      • Anonymous

        Yes Morena Baccarin is beautiful, especially with the very short hair she had in “V.” That show reminds me of two other very beautiful actresses in it – Laura Vandervoort and Elizabeth Mitchell. Kaley Cuoco, Cobie Smulders, Sofia Vergara and Elisha Cuthbert are all pretty too. All the main girls from Smallville are pretty too. I also think Jennifer Morsen is beautiful, actually quite a few actresses from Once Upon a Time are pretty. Stana Katic, Zooey Deschanel (and her sister from “Bones”), and Margot Robbie are beautiful too… Its too hard to pick just one haha.

      • Indigo Lace

        Me too. She wore the most flattering outfits on the t.v series “V”. That’s the only reason I was upset the show was cancelled.

    • I find it so hard to make these lists – but I’d definitely be putting Morena and Gina Torres on it – they’re both gorgeous! I also think Nina Dobrev is beautiful – more onscreen than in pictures – and I can’t leave Christina Hendricks and Sofia Vergara out either!

      • misscheeks

        Yeah Erica, those ladies are sexy for sure imo! I always end up missing people out…Sarah Shahi is another one I missed lol

    • binks

      Agreed I would add Kerry Washington to the list too. But Elisha Cuthbert is cute more like the girl next door sort of way.

    • lillaliket

      Mary-Louise Parker and Emily Deschanel! Oh, and Emmy Rossum, she is gorgeous.

    • Powwow

      I was gonna add Kerry Washington, she’s gorgeous, Elisa is pretty but not especially beautiful IMO. Also, her legs are really short which, I know sucks :/ lol

    • Hazal

      Eva Longoria!!! 😀

    • Loxy

      Shay Mitchell! The way she carries herself is just so sexy.

      • Emmy

        her poise! The way she stands and walks makes me wanna be a better person 😛

    • Alex

      natascha mcelhone from californication is absolutely stunning!!!

    • artemis

      i doubt i know all of those, maybe not by their name but i know kristin, she’s is pretty.
      from the stuff i watch/watched i like nina dobrev(TVD), deborah ann woll(TRUE BLOOD 😀 and the middle eastern actress that plays luna, her face is pretty..her boobs are saggy sadly..i love her face), hmmm fk it’s hard to think of everything i watched, OH, chyler leigh(grey’s anatomy. plain blonde katherine heigl had NOTHING on her), hmmm, zoey is nice, hmmm i’ll think of others later lol

  • ary

    Meh, not my type.

  • Isabel

    Well, i don’t find her to be that goodlooking, i actually think she’s sort of generic. I guess everyone has it’s own taste but i don’t usually pay attention to those magazines because no matter if the woman who takes the prize is beautiful or not, it’s her popularity that helps her to make it into the cover.

  • Observer

    she’s pretty but maxim cover is photoshopped to hell and back.

  • Debbs

    I agree with this. I always wondered why she wasn’t more famous. Her face is gorgeous.

  • Sienna

    Nice pretty face but her body is a bit thick in the arms and legs.

  • Lauren

    I think she looks good. Healthy, toned, curvy. But they photoshopped her left shoulder to the point of weirdness lol

  • HB


    And no, they didn’t like that character because she never got naked. They liked her because she was an object. “Can I some inside? I’m all wet.” Please.
    *rolls eyes*

  • Sidney

    I don’t think she’s stunning per se, but pretty, and she can be hot, and she’s always funny in her interviews. She seems kinda goofy which adds to her “hotness” imo.

  • lc

    Uh yeah no. Kind of a has been also.

  • Jacky Daniels

    well she is hot in a “girl next door” way. like kelly couco. i think she is cute.

  • She’s cute – but I wouldn’t call her the prettiest.

  • Mimi

    Overrated.. What about meghan markle?! Kristin kreuk, kerry washington, sophia bush, emily vancamp, emmanuelle chriqui..and that’s just some that i find hotter than elisha..

  • jenna

    Pretty girl, nice body. No idea who she is.
    It’s crazy to see the candids of her versus the cover of the magazine. Really shows just how much they trim off cuz she looks way thinner on the cover.

  • HazeL

    I would have never expected her to be on top of a list like this, but I actually really like that she is – I’ve always thought she was gorgeous and she seems comfortable with her body even though she’s not thin. Nice healthy looking normal girl who seems approachable, she looks a bit like Jennifer Morrison in some of the photos.

  • Liz

    I understood her appeal back in her prime “Girl Next Door” days. I don’t understand her appeal now. She’s not a very good actress at all. Her character on Happy Endings is really annoying….but then again so are all of the characters except for Max and Penny….well except for when Penny says “amahzing” then she’s also really annoying. I need to stop watching TV…

  • Alex

    Do not know who this girl is. But she must be beautiful. Taste is a very subjective thing. My Diva TV is Mariska Hargitay. Simply beautiful. A natural beauty. She is like wine. It gets better with time.

    • misscheeks

      I agree about Mariska Alex, she’s lovely! Do you watch SVU?

      • Alex

        Watch. And I say that in my country Mariska is adored by fans. People find it beautiful. And she is. She has the most beautiful smile I’ve ever seen in my life.

    • Mia

      Mariska is a unique beauty, I really like her features. Unfortunately these lists are usually geared towards younger actresses. There is a lot of ageism in the entertainment industry.

      • Alex

        I totally agree with you. Of course, Mariska is not too worried about these lists. She was once a beauty queen in her youth. But I wanted to register my opinion just because she is an older woman. But she is really beautiful. His dark brown eyes and her smile are impressive. And she is tall and curvy. A natural beauty, without artificiality and stereotypes.

        • Shiv

          Ahhh hello- her mother was the late Jayne Mansfield- of course she’s gorgeous!

          • artemis

            x_x that woman looked like kate upton with corset training

  • vanessa

    she is very pretty so I won’t disagree, at the same time there are a lot of women on tv who very pretty. Shay Mitchell being one of them, hope she is one that list maxim! =)

  • Liz

    I find that blond chick from Chuck or the farm girl from Walking dead both 100 times hotter.

    • neutra

      You mean Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie? She is SO BEAUTIFUL. Not to mention the only female cast member in TWD who doesn’t drive me insane. The fact that she can look that good in that show even when she’s been crying, barely wearing any makeup except for blood and dirt…. I love her. She was especially beautiful as Bella in Supernatural. I’ve listened to a couple of podcasts with her – she seems so incredibly down to earth and has a great sense of humour. She’s really refreshing. And a great healthy figure too!

  • Loxy

    She is a babe. I have always lover her face.

    Elisha Cuthbert is very beautiful indeed. However I dont know who the most beautiful or most handsome man on tv would be. Honestly beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, its very subjective and everyone has a different opinion. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you look like, there will always be people who do and people who do not find you attractive. We’re not all interested and attracted to the same kinds of people. Some people may think Elisha is gorgeous, while others may think she’s just ok to them… There’s no right or wrong answer. The “sexiest” man/woman lists are all just about hype, exposure and a bit of fun… They’re not to be taken seriously coz people will never agree on the outcome. In the end, Elisha is a beautiful woman but Im not particularly drawn to her. She does have an interesting face and nice body though and I think she is pretty.

      However I dont know who the most beautiful *woman or most handsome man on tv would be.

    • artemis

      jesse williams :)) for his face 😀 his body is very toned and stuff that most would go nuts for but i like smaller muscles on guys. he’s so tall and has nice legs and wide shoulders so it almost makes up for it. nothing makes up for the armpit hair i saw he had in some pics X_X hope it was the photographers decision and not his. it just ruins everything :-&

  • Winnie

    Elisha Cuthbert? really? i thought she was cute at best, and she hasn’t aged very well since The Girl Next door, has she?

    one of the most beautiful females on TV imo is Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen (but only while in costume, i find her underwhelming as a brunette). i also think Annalynne McCord is gorgeous and so is Jessica Lowndes and…yeah. as you can see, i don’t watch much TV lol

  • loo

    I’m not a huge fan of her face but I think she has an amazing figure. I suspect that’s what the boys like the most about her. I agree with her comment too – leaving a bit of mystery is far sexier than showing everything.

  • tellmewhatyouwant

    in that first picture she looks like that amanda chick from ugly betty

  • AIms

    She is gorgeous. She is a good example of slim but not too slim. Good for her. No wonder men love her so much.

  • retrobanana

    never found this woman attractive her shoulders arms always bothered me she has one of hose bigger on top small on bottom bodies which makes me ohhh so happy to be pearshaped for once (and i am finally becoming a smallish pear or maybe an accepting my pear ass lol) her face is just meh…she just is very forgettable.
