"Rosie is a true transformer," Maxim Editor in Chief Joe Levy said in a press release. "A Victoria's Secret stunner who is about to go supernova when she takes over for Megan Fox in the 'Transformers' franchise. Her talent is as undeniable as her beauty, which is pretty jaw-droppingly undeniable."

Some celebrities who have topped the list in past years include Olivia Wilde, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Simpson and Eva Longoria, who won twice.
