Winnie, No!

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.

    Hee, hee. If I looked like that I’d probably flaunt it, too! 🙂

    For my part, I have absolutely NO problem seeing her like this! 🙂 I loved her then, and I love her now. Plus, I already had an inkling from when she appeared in one episode on that Fred Savage show (what was it called? Working?).

    It was funny. I had heard she was going to be on the episode, and it took me about half the episode until I realized THAT was her! She looks great. 🙂

    Two words: Holy crap!

    I loved the Wonder Years. Little Winnie is all grown up! She was a beautiful child. For Danica, it must be nice to be brilliant and gorgeous. I’m with you about Fred Savage. I wouldn’t want to see him in his briefs, either!

    Ah, no biggie. She’s now a UCLA alumna (and we’re known to be damn cute ;)). Plus, it’s tasteful. Well, at least, that cover shot is. Plus, she’s also in this month’s issue of Good Magazine and she has her clothes on!

    I’m too lazy to link it…well, that’s not true, I don’t know how, but here is the article link:
