It's been a few years since Maxim checked in with Mikaela Hoover. The actress and model from small-town Washington has since parlayed her small role alongside Glenn Close in Guardians of the Galaxy into numerous other on-screen opps on hit shows like 2 Broke Girls and Lucifer, plus parts in a slew of recent short films.
Find out more about her rap star crush, sexiest fantasy (It involves endless burgers and ranch dressing), and more below:
How can a man catch your attention?
Humor. I’m a sucker for funny guys.
What’s the worst pick-up line you’ve ever heard?
I could write a book on terrible pickup lines. Too many amazing ones to write. Lately, I’ve been getting quite a few people telling me they matched with me on Tinder. Either there’s a bunch of fake Tinder profiles of me out there, or it’s a pretty brilliant pickup line.
How do you let a man know you’re interested?
Go up to him and tell him.
What’s your ideal date?
Burgers with ranch dressing and a scary movie at home.
What about a man turns you on the most?
As I said before, I’m a sucker for humor. When a man doesn’t take himself too seriously and can laugh at himself and me, I love it.
When do you feel sexiest?
When I am comfortable. When I’m not working I’m always dressed down. My friends make fun of me because I’m constantly wearing sweatpants and a tank, but it’s when I feel the most comfortable.
Who’s your biggest celebrity crush?
Eminem. I saw him in concert last year and almost fainted. Doesn’t every girl who grew up in the 90s still have a thing for Marshall Mathers? Also, Jensen Ackles' Dean Winchester from Supernatural. His character is such a beautiful badass.
What's on your favorite music playlist?
Tupac, Eazy-E, Tim McGraw, Eminem and Dan + Shay. I know that's pretty random...I grew up in Washington, so I love me some country.
Do you have a favorite athlete or sports team?
The Los Angeles Dodgers.
What fashion brands do you like the best?
Ha, does Target count?
What's your favorite meal?
A good burger with ranch dressing. It’s my go-to meal.
What’s your favorite thing to do in the bedroom?
A lady never tells.
And what should a man never do in the bedroom?
Be insecure. It doesn’t matter what you are rocking as long as you are secure and confident.
Have any sexy fantasies?
Trapped on a tropical island with endless amounts of burgers and ranch dressing. Oh, and some French toast for breakfast. If you could throw in some deep-fried Oreos for dessert, that would be amazing!
What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
Food that’s terrible for me and my bed.
