Some Turtles have all the luck. Besides the friendship of his bros and a limitless supply of baseball caps, Entourage’s resident chauffeur turned entrepreneur gets to smooch Dania Ramirez. Joining the pantheon of babes who have appeared on HBO’s smash over the years, this smokeshow already made our sexy sonar beep uncontrollably with turns in X-Men: The Last Stand, The Sopranos, and Heroes. Now that she’s in our living rooms every Sunday night, facing the week ahead is a lot easier.
You’ve been in Maxim before, but this is your first time on the cover. How does it feel?
I’m psyched! I loved being photographed in the sand. I’m Dominican, so I’m a beach girl.

Do you enjoy sexy shoots?
Absolutely! I embrace femininity, and that includes being sexy and comfortable with my body.
The creator of Entourage, Doug Ellin, told us this season has the hottest women yet.
We have a great group of girls. There’s me, there’s Emmanuelle Chriquí—who’s beautiful—and then there’s Sasha Grey, who’s a porn star. We got a Dominican, a Canadian, and a porn star.

Do you hit the Hollywood party scene as hard as the guys on Entourage?
Not as much as I used to. When I first came out here, I was a lot more into the partying, but now I enjoy coming home, cooking a great meal, and just lounging.
C’mon! We’ve seen you get down at our Hot 100 party.
I do go out, but only to the best parties—hence the Hot 100! I just don’t want to be going out every night to the same club as everybody else. But I love a great party. I’m alive, and I love all the pleasures of life...eating, dancing, sex. I love it all!

They say blondes have more fun. But "they" apparently never met a brunette like this.
