Elisha Cuthbert

Elisha Cuthbert has been named the most beautiful woman on TV.

The 'Happy Endings' star has been awarded the annual title by the editors of Maxim magazine and admits the honour is "very flattering".

The 30-year-old blonde beauty said: "To think that one person could be the most beautiful when there's Kaley Cuoco, Sofia 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 [Casey Wilson and Eliza Coupe], this is gonna make going to work very uncomfortable. I don't know, this might be a curse."

The former '24' star also admits that she has no problem being an object of lust and thinks that her character as a porn star in the 2004 movie 'The Girl Next Door' was a huge hit because she was subtly sexy.

She said: "To be honest, I think one reason guys liked that character so much is because I didn't go fully nude. My character really could be the girl of every guy's dreams, instead of having them see her naked and going, 'Oh, that's not my thing.' Remember 'Weird Science'? Kelly LeBrock never got naked. She didn't show you every¬thing. I think that's why it resonated with more men than it probably should have."

Elisha announced her engagement to ice hockey player Dion Phaneuf, 27, last September after five years of dating.

The couple celebrated their happy news with a seafood feast at New Glasgow Lobster restaurant on Prince Edward Island, Canada.
