Abigail Spencer isn’t just your typical starlet. The gorgeous Florida native got into the industry early on, being romanced by Don Draper onMad Men and going toe-to-toe with other lawyers on Suits. Her latest role as Amantha Holden on the gritty Sundance Channel drama Rectify has garnered rave reviews, with several award nominations coming in for both her and the show. Up next, the beautiful actress is taking her talents behind the camera with the upcoming Winter Light, as well as her role on the buzzed about new season of HBO’s True Detective. If people weren’t looking in her direction before, they will be now.
Abigail filled Maxim on her go-to drink, the ideal date, and why men should be a little "un-groomed."
I feel sexiest when I’m wearing nothing. Or mom jeans.
My go-to drink would probably be Steaz Energy Zero during the day and some rosé/champagne/ tequila at night!
My favorite parts of my body are my arms. For hugging, holding, and jazz hands.
Want to get my attention? Walk around with a Josh Pence face replacement.
The ideal date would involve sleeping in...then a delicious breakfast at Superba or Gjelina in LA. A morning stand up paddle or surf. Then a long nap, of course. Then a leisurely afternoon of bike riding and walking around leading up to an amazing dinner at Gracias Madre with margaritas and chips and guacamole a plenty followed by a movie. Out. Or in. Is that specific enough?
I love tacos. And chips & guacamole. Margaritas too. Have I mentioned margaritas? I'm a drinky.
A man should be a little un-groomed please. No spending more time getting ready than me. Scruff n' stuff is good. Au natural.
I love the well-fitted look but not too fitted. Rag & Bone pants with Frye boots or a great sneaker and a nice simple Rag & Bone t-shirt. A Filson lumber jack buffalo check flannel. And maybe a great sweatshirt I can borrow. With one piece of tasteful jewelry.
Melissa McCarthy & Amy Schumer should be on the Maxim Hot 100. Hilarious and smart is hot.
As for what’s next, True Detective just premiered, with Rectify [coming] soon in July. I'm shooting this amazing film, The Sweet Life, with Chris Messina. And my film A Beautiful Now premiered at The Los Angeles Film Festival on June 12th. Plus the short feature I produced,Winter Light, is hitting the festival circuit. And I have two writing projects that are various stages of development.
