Elisha Cuthbert — Celeb Crush
If you’ve been sleeping on finally watching ‘Happy Endings,’ even though everyone you know and respect has told you to do it, this is your final chance to not look like a dummy: Watch this show. In addition to being hilarious, it also features this babe, who we’ve been crushing on since we first met her way back on Nickelodeon’s ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’
Cuthbert was raised in Montreal, and had a weird start in the entertainment business — she was a children’s foot model. She first appeared on the ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ in 1996, and became a regular on the show in 1999. During that span of time she also spent 3 years as co-host of ‘Popular Mechanics for Kids.’ At the age of 17 she moved to LA and was quickly cast in the role that got her noticed, Jack Bauer’s perpetually-in-peril daughter Kim on ’24.’ She’s been on a million lists of sexy women, duh, and has appeared in multiple movies, including the 2004 movie which we blame for destroying our sense of reality, ‘The Girl Next Door,’ where she played a porn star who moves in next door to a teenage boy and falls in love with him.
These days she’s the ditzy boutique owner Alex on ‘Happy Endings,’ a sitcom about six young Chicago friends. It’s hilarious, fresh, and awesome enough that the current season (3) is now airing two times a week until the finale in March. Catch up, you’re missing awesome things, including more of Elisha. Here’s a best of video of her being awesome:
