American supermodel Marisa Miller tops Maxim’s Hot 100 list for 2008, dethroning Lindsay Lohan.
As Sports Illustrated’s 2008 Swimsuit Issue cover girl, Victoria’s Secret’s number one Angel (sorry, Gisele), and the crème de la crème of Maxim’s ninth annual Hot 100 list, Marisa Miller embodies the official return of the all-American supermodel. Not since Cindy Crawford ruled the catwalk has a pinup born and bred on U.S. soil so thoroughly captured the imagination of the American male. It must be strange living a life in which no man can formulate a coherent sentence in your presence. Oh, and if you really need one more reason to love her: Marisa humbly says of her career, “I get a kick out of it, but it would be stupid to let it go to my head. It’s modeling—I didn’t find the cure for cancer.”
Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel took the #2 and #3 spots, respectively.
