Now i am fully aware that Maxim's "Table of Hotness" is finished a year old understanding that it's considered mean-spirited within the extreme to comment negatively over a woman's looks and so i won't do it, but, c'mon! The 93rd hottest woman in the world? Out of maybe three to four billion eligible females? On the same list as Tomei, Watson, and Montag? On a single list as Taylor Swift and Jessica Biel and Jennifer aniston?Top list
As the late Gary Coleman would certainly have said, "Gimme a rest!"
Just as it's crude to demean a lady's looks, isn't it rude to insult the intelligence of girls and men alike by including someone of at best average pulcritude on a list of hottest women exclusively for political reasons, namely that her husband was president and Maxim was sucking up?
Perhaps it comes down to Maxim's definition of "hot," which the British men's magazine doesn't define. hottest
Call me old fashioned but using any criteria, I'd never label our previous First Lady, Laura Bush, as hot. I'd describe her as very pretty, dignified, lady-like, and classy but never as hot. That classification, even though it doesn't apply to Mrs. Obama, no longer has enough line in describing the wife with the president of the United States.
Apparently, though, Maxim didn't agree.
The wife in the president of France, former model Carla Bruni, is surely an entirely different matter since she once made her living by being hot.
