The 2009 Hot 100

6. Eliza Dushku- On-screen in Fox’s Dollhouse, she’s a lethal hottie who can negotiate a hostage release or recover stolen art for the Greek government. Offscreen, she’s the show’s producer. Either way, you should stay on Eliza’s good side. In March, the former Angel and Buffy babe revealed to us that in addition to working 14-hour days doing many of her own stunts on the show, she still makes time for hygiene. “I love catching a glimpse of my tattoos when I strip down to take a shower.” Eliza, you’ve delivered a roundhouse kick to our heartstrings.

Watch Eliza's video.

2. Megan Fox- Seriously, do women get more painfully hot than this? Megan Fox has the face of an angel, a body so perfect that God may have carved it out of soap while in the shower, and sex appeal that could melt a unicorn’s horn. Plus, we hear she smells like clouds! Look for Megan as robot bait in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, a cheerleader in Jennifer’s Body, and a beauty beguiling Josh Brolin’s disfigured gunslinger in Jonah Hex. And look for us to keep typing “Megan Fox” in Google image search!

1. Olivia Wilde- We may not know a McDreamy from a McNugget, but when it comes to TV doctors, there is only one who makes our body temperature rise. The pulse-quickening internist played by Olivia Wilde on House, M.D. is named Thirteen (which we presume is out of 10) and has a terminal illness that causes her to dabble in drugs and casual sex. (That's how we want to go!) But we were drooling over this N.Y.C. native long before she was injected into Fox's hit medical drama. Roles on small-screen faves The Black Donnellys and The O.C. introduced Olivia to the world, but it's her prehistoric part in this month's Year One that will put her on top of it. As the object of Cro-Magnon lust in the Judd Apatow-produced, Harold Ramis-directed, Jack Black-starring comedy, Olivia will surely knock moviegoers back to the Stone Age. Ugh!

3. Bar Rafaeli- If there’s any evidence that the Middle East is a land of beauty and wonder—not just unending turbulence— Bar is it. The 24-year-old Israeli supermodel with the brain-blowing bod scorched the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue this year, sending lonely high school gym coaches across the country into cardiac arrest at their mailboxes. These days, you can watch her hosting MTV’s House of Style—if you’re into that sort of thing. Or just keep staring at this incredibly hot photo.

7. Adriana Lima- With apologies to Mrs. Tom Brady, it’s Adriana who epitomizes the Brazilian bombshell— her killer curves, ridiculous sexiness, and adorable accent make this supermodel the hottest export from a nation stupid with smoking hot women. In addition to campaigns for Guess and Maybelline, the perfectly proportioned polyglot (she speaks Portuguese, English, and French) has been a Victoria’s Secret Angel for nine years running— yet somehow, we never tire of seeing her nearly naked. She broke our hearts when she married Memphis Grizzlies guard Marko Jaric, Commence hating!

8. Rihanna- Pop’s reigning princess has had a year of wild highs and lows, from two Grammy nods to a much-publicized altercation with R&B singer Chris Brown. But the Barbadian beauty—who picked up a don’t-mess- with-me pistol tat after the incident—is poised to return stronger than ever. Rumor has it she’s already begun recording her fourth album, the follow-up to 2007’s smash Good Girl Gone Bad. We’re dancing already!

4. Malin Akerman-

In the dark world of Watchmen, Malin was tasked with one tough mission: distract moviegoers from Billy Crudup's 12-foot-long blue penis. She succeeded with flying colors--and a peelable latex costume. Watchmen wasn't the first time we've seen Malin (Who can forget her role in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle?), and it won't be the last. She's got four new flicks on her busy schedule.

9. Jordana Brewster- No offense, Paul Walker, but this breathtaking daughter of a Brazilian swimsuit model and granddaughter of a Yale University president is the real reason the entire world went to see Fast & Furious. Paul! Wait. Come back. It’s nothing personal!

5. Mila Kunis- When the cast of Forgetting Sarah Marshall tapped the Ukraine-born Kunis to play Jason Segel's rebound, who could have predicted that she would throw of the entire premise of the movie? Mila's combination of exotic beauty and girl-next-door charm would make any sane man forget his ex in three seconds flat. With the upcoming Mike Judge comedy this fall, she cements her sexpot status. For those of us who remember Mila as Ashton Kutcher's cute (but frankly annoying) girlfriend on That 70s Show, there are two questions: When did she get so insanely hot? And why is she still with Macaulay Culkin?! Maybe some things are better left unanswered.

10. Jennifer Love Hewitt- If you were finally getting over your 14-yearlong crush on JLH, we apologize for this picture, which will set your recovery back a good decade. Ever since she uttered her first, “Bailey!” on Party of Five, Love has been the object of many a man’s obsession. She left us high and dry for a bit, but her return to the tube on Ghost Whisperer gives us our weekly fix of Love and needy dead people.
