"I loved it! I imagined I was the sexy wife left alone, posing around the house in lingerie," actress Eva Amurri tells Maxim of her photo spread in the April issue, on newsstands Tuesday.
Amurri's boyfriend, Fox soccer analyst Kyle Martino, apparently liked it, too. "[He] visited the set, and we got engaged the next day," Amurri says. "Everybody's been teasing him, 'The Maxim shoot sold you, huh?' "
Amurri, 25, is used to sexing it up for the cameras, having played a stripper recently on Showtime's Californication – a role she also enjoyed immensely.
"I've wanted to play that part my entire life," she says. "You can tell from the way girls dress on Halloween, we just want to wear cute outfits that let us show off. We're always told, 'You can't look like a slut,' so to be able to prance around like we do in our bedrooms, it was a dream come true."
Will her exotic dancing lead to something more family friendly – like a turn on Dancing with the Stars?
