What a Beautiful Woman Wants: Mikaela Hoover

“It doesn’t matter what you are rocking in the bedroom as long as you are secure and confident.”

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.
