Laura Ramsey has always been a bit ahead of the game. The 32-year old Wisconsin native made the big move to California at age 19 and never looked back. She quickly nabbed roles in She’s the Man and Are You Here, but took a while to find a project that would put her face - and what a face - front and center. With VH1’s Hindsight, she's finally got a vehicle. And she's going to hit the gas.
Laura filled MAXIM in on how to get inside a woman’s heart, her favorite Wisconsin spot, and a good glass of tequila.
There are seventeen other things that I would like to be doing. I don’t know why, but I feel like I want to be a masseuse and have my own little place that people come and do energy healing and body work. I try to be zen as much as possible in the world we live in now but like anyone it’s a challenge to find it.
Fuck is definitely my favorite curse word just because there is so much behind it and there’s so many ways of using it. You can use it the word in so many different ways and it’s apart of our language. You can express so much just with that one word.
I feel most sexy wearing jeans and a t-shirt. I like just being comfortable.
I really like a nice, fresh ceviche. That’s really exciting to me with the sun shining and a really good cold beer. If I’m going to be in Wisconsin, then I’d go with a grilled bratwurst. You can’t go wrong with that, also with a cold beer.
I like a really nice tequila on the rocks. It’s the best liquor; it’s the most clean and if it’s a really nice one, you can sip it all night and you won’t get a hangover.
A good way to get inside a woman’s heart personally is cook me a meal. Cook me a good meal and I’m a happy date. That’s pretty impressive to me.
In terms of grooming, a man should be whoever the hell the man wants to be. If he wants to have hair, he should have hair and if he doesn’t then he shouldn’t have hair. I think it’s all up to the man. Whatever makes him happy.
Back home in Wisconsin, I have a place called The Corner Bar. It’s the best bar that has probably ever existed, it’s a dive bar in my hometown. I pretty much grew up there. My Dad’s in a band so his band would play there and there’s a juke box, darts, pool, and everybody knows everybody.
I’d say my favorite part of my body is my feet because they’re little. Yeah, I like my feet.
I hope whatever’s supposed to happen next will happen. If Hindsight is going to be the greatest success, then I think that’s going to be amazing, and if it doesn’t then I think that’s amazing as well. I think everything is happening how it’s supposed to happen. I’m just trying to live in the moment and not think about the future too much.
