For the second year in a row, Eva Longoria has topped Maxim’s annual “Hot 100” list of the most successful women in film, TV, music, sports and fashion.
The 31-year-old “Desperate Housewives” actress was said to be shocked by the ranking. Male readers of Maxim no doubt were not, although it is the first time the magazine has bestowed the No. 1 honor back-to-back. Editors made the selections for the issue, which will be on newsstands Thursday.
Jessica Alba is No. 2, followed by Lindsay Lohan, Angelina Jolie, Stacy Keibler, Scarlett Johansson, Cameron Diaz, Kate Bosworth, Keira Knightley and singer-actress Christina Milian.
A statement issued by the magazine said the women on the list have “a tremendous amount of buzz surrounding them, undeniable beauty and a promise of greater things to come.”
The list also includes “Desperate Housewives” stars Nicollette Sheridan (No. 48) and Teri Hatcher (No. 73).
“The Maxim Hot 100 continues to get hotter, and it is all because of girls like Eva Longoria, who always looks sensational and continues to reach new heights in her career,” Editor in Chief Ed Needham said in a statement Monday.
