Malin Akerman Is Turning 40, So Celebrate With the ‘Billions’ Beauty’s Hottest Shots Ever

The Swedish stunner deserves your well wishes.

Longtime Maxim favorite and Billions beauty Malin Akerman is celebrating a major birthday: the big 4-0.

The Swedish-born stunner, who was raised in Canada before making it big in Hollywood, got her start in a slew of silly ’00s comedies like Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, The Heartbreak Kid and Couples Retreat.

It’s really too bad Watchmen never took off.

But she has proven that she is a formidable acting force on the acclaimed Showtime series Billions, where she plays Lara Axelrod, the gorgeous wife of Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis).

As a brilliant but tough-as-nails beauty from a working-class background, Akerman’s character has completely flipped the “trophy wife” script. She’s every bit as cunning and power-driven as the show’s star.

Check out Malin Akerman’s hottest shots of all time in the slideshow above, some of which just might be throwback Maxim shots.
