Olivia Wilde tops Maxim’s Hot 100 list

The Maxim Hot 100 results are in and this year, the magazine has given nods to the beautiful ladies of the runway, reality TV and even a resident of the White House.

But the top spot went to a beauty from a different kind of “House.” The Fox medical drama’s Olivia Wilde snagged the top spot for 2009.

Maxim Editor-in-Chief Joe Levy says that he has loved Wilde since her role as bad girl Alex on “The OC”

“Olivia Wilde has been the sexiest woman on television since she heated up ‘The OC’ five years ago. She’s smart, she’s beautiful, and she has dual citizenship in the U.S. and Ireland — what more can a man ask for?” Levy asked.

This June, fans will get to see a different side of Wilde as she busts out her comic chops in “Year One,” starring Jack Black and Michael Cera. Wilde will play Princess Inanna alongside the funnymen.

Sliding in at number two is “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” co-star Megan Fox.

“Seriously, do women get more painfully hot than this?” the mag raves. “Megan Fox has the face of an angel, a body so perfect that God may have carved it out of soap … and sex appeal that could melt a unicorn’s horn.”

In the third slot is Sports Illustrated’s newest swimsuit cover girl, and Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend, Bar Refaeli.

“If there’s any evidence that the Middle East is a land of beauty and wonder Bar is it,” the mag said of the Israeli model.

    "'Transformers' made $700 million and that opened a door to introduce this 'new girl,'" Fox tells Entertainment Weekly. "I happened to be such an outrageous personality that people wanted to start writing about me because it was deemed controversial. I think if I had been a typical Hollywood actress and I said all the right things and I had been a publicity android, it wouldn’t have escalated to this level."
