[ May 11th 2005 ]
lipped beauty Angelina Jolie has eased into seventh
position on this year's MAXIM Hot 100 for 2005.
The Tomb Raider star brushed off stiff competition
from Sin City's Brittany Murphy and Dukes Of Hazzard
star Jessica Simpson. Pole sitter for 2005 is
Desperate Housewives' Eva Longoria, with actress
Evangeline Lilly in second place.
Hot 100 continues to be a barometer of Hollywood
cool, and this marks its 6th anniversary. Each
year, MAXIM chooses 100 of the most successful
women of the year in film, television, music,
sports and fashion. All of the women on the list

Editors are given the daunting task of selecting

throughout the year.
MAXIM Hot 100 is the end result of a process in
which experts examine thousands of beautiful women
and refine them down to the very hottest," says
MAXIM Editor-in-Chief Ed Needham. "These are the
women whose names are on the lips of people the
world over, whose careers are headed for the dizziest
heights and whose looks will scorch the back off
