Elisha Cuthbert shocked to top TV beauty poll

Elisha Cuthbert can't believe she's beaten the likes of Sofía Vergara and Zooey Deschanel to be named TV’s Most Beautiful Woman by Maxim magazine.

The blonde actress appears on the cover of Maxim to celebrate being named TV’s Most Beautiful Woman by the publication.

The 30-year-old actress stars in Happy Endings alongside female co-stars Eliza Coupe and Casey Wilson, and is stunned by the title.

"To think that one person could be the most beautiful when there’s Kaley Cuoco, Sofía Vergara, Zooey Deschanel? They’re all stunning. 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, this is gonna make going to work very uncomfortable," she quipped in an accompanying interview.

Former 24 star Elisha poses up a storm for the March 2013 issue, which hits American newsstands on February 19.

The gorgeous star shows off her beauty credentials in a navy one-piece bathing suit, clinched at the waist with a black leather belt.

Elisha remains modest about her appearance, and although she is admired for her sex appeal, she prefers to keep it under wraps.

"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," she laughed, speaking about her famous role in comedy movie Girl Next Door.

Elisha got engaged to Canadian hockey player Dion Phaneuf last year. Despite being the object of men's affections, the star is more than happy with her beau.

"In interviews everyone is always asked who their celebrity crush is, and I haven’t had one since Jordan Knight from New Kids on the Block, when I was 12," she smiled.

"Now I just say Oprah [Winfrey]. I love that woman. She’ll go to someone’s house and bring a huge bucket of oranges she picked from her Santa Barbara home. Oprah, when did you have time to pick two dozen oranges from your garden?"
