Danica McKellar in Stuff Magazine (July 2005)
The last I heard about Danica McKellar (Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years), she was a UCLA math genius publishing a paper on “Percolation and Gibbs states multiplicity for ferromagnetic Ashkin-Teller models on Z2” (no joke).
Of course, since there is a tremendous glut of brilliant female mathematicians in American academia, Ms. McKellar chose the more difficult path of trying to drum up more acting roles by posing in her underwear for Stuff Magazine.
Danica, I understand you’re all grown up now and an attractive woman, but I felt a little uncomfortable looking at Winnie like this. To be fair, I wouldn’t want to see Fred Savage in his Jockeys either.
