Danica McKellar Talks About What's Sexy in Maxim Interview

Well Said: Danica McKellar on What's Sexy

"If a guy is skilled at anything, that’s attractive. There’s something very primal about that, and, sure, it can be as simple as figuring out the tip quickly . . . Confidence is one of the sexiest things in guys and girls. Look at Michelle Pfeiffer: My God, she’s 50 years old, but she is still so sexy. If I were into women, I would be totally into her."

— Danica McKellar, aka Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years, flashed some skin in her recent Maxim interview. But this mathlete, who's written three books on her quest to get girls more interested in numbers, put aside the books to school us on what's sexy.

What are you suggesting, Betty Wayne?! Because I say that a lot, about a lot of women :D Being smart and self-confident is definitely attractive! The face/body you've got - it's just a base. The whole attractiveness is much more than that!

Lee she has amazing hair. Really though "If I were into women, I would be totally into her." Straight chicks don't say that. Chicks who **think** they're straight say that.

Growing up (maybe even still... :P ) I wanted to be like her; back then due to her gorgeous hair, now because of the hair and the brains (math and I currently have a poor relationship.) Also she is right, confidence is insanely attractive. When you are at peace with yourself and proud (not to be confused with ego larger than one's head), then it is drawing to others.

About Michelle Pfeiffer and confidence, I had a friend who knew her. In person, Michelle is very shy and mousy. She's a wallflower, and practically goes unnoticed. However, when she's in a front of a camera, Michelle transforms. An alter ego comes out. This ego is remarkably more confident. So the Michelle people see on camera is completely different from the Michelle they would meet in person.
