Add this to Ashley Tisdale's list of acting skills – she can look totally hot while completely freezing.
The Scary Movie V actress, 27, says her sultry photos – including the cover shot – in the May issue of Maxim are a bit deceiving. What looks like summer was anything but.
"It was freezing. It was not really that fun," she told PEOPLE Thursday at the Scary Movie V premiere in Los Angeles. "I was in Malibu, in the wintertime, with nothing on."

Meryl Streep received universal acclaim and an Oscar – her third – for her portrayal of former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher in the 2011 biopic The Iron Lady. PEOPLE's critic raved at the time that Streep's turn was more "channeling" than impersonation.
On Monday, after the news broke that Thatcher had died at 87 following a stroke, the actress was quick to point out that, in reality, Thatcher was a complex woman she barely knew – and a woman with a complicated legacy.
"Margaret Thatcher was a pioneer, willingly or unwillingly, for the role of women in politics," Streep said in a statement. "It is hard to imagine a part of our current history that has not been affected by measures she put forward in the U.K. at the end of the 20th century. Her hard-nosed fiscal measures took a toll on the poor, and her hands-off approach to financial regulation led to great wealth for others. There is an argument that her steadfast, almost emotional loyalty to the pound sterling has helped the U.K. weather the storms of European monetary uncertainty."

In honor of the 20th anniversary of Steven Spielberg's 1993 blockbuster hit Jurassic Park – which is being rereleased on the big screen in 3D on Friday – PEOPLE catches up with the film's child stars, Joseph Mazzello and Ariana Richards.
For Mazzello, now 29, the days spent filming with Spielberg in Hawaii marked "the greatest time of my life," he recalls. "My time with Steven on Jurassic Park affected where I wanted to go to school and what I wanted to do with my life."
After Jurassic Park, Mazzello starred in a string of hit movies, including The River Wild with Meryl Streep, and enrolled at the University of Southern California in 2001.

Roger Ebert is resting in peace.
"We were getting ready to go home today for hospice care, when he looked at us, smiled, and passed away," Roger's wife of 20 years, Chaz, said Thursday in a statement, shortly after news broke of his death. "No struggle, no pain, just a quiet, dignified transition."
But the loss of the iconic movie critic, 70, has understandably left Chaz "devastated," as she refers to him as "my husband, my friend, my confidante and oh-so-brilliant partner."
