On this list you will find only the hottest of the American Pie franchise alums. With eight movies, including some straight to video spin-offs, there were so many beautiful women to choose from it was amazing. But again, this is the best of the best. And we’re going by looks, not resume, so some of the usual suspects were omitted from the list.
For example, there is no Natasha Lyonne listed. Sure, she’s been in Hollywood since Pee Wee Herman, and recently revived her career with her raunchy role on Orange is the New Black, but you know what? She is a great actress, and has a striking look, but she’s not the hottest coal on the fire. Another one that you won’t see here is Stifler’s mom, Jennifer Coolidge. She’s another actress who’s been around, starting out with a role on Seinfeld. She also revived her career via television on her saucy role in Two Broke Girls. But let’s face it, she’s a MILF, and more like a GILF nowadays, and there are plenty of other hotter coeds that prevailed.
So as you can tell, we do not give a lick about how famous these women are or what they did before or after they starred in an American Pie flick. Nor does it matter if they were on screen for one second, or one hour, or even if they had any lines. If they were super hot, and they were in a Pie film, they are here. Only the finest. Indeed, they were all truly beautiful, but these ladies are the cream of the crop.
15 Katrina Bowden
You may recognize this cute blond from the popular Tina Fey sitcom, 30 Rock. Katrina starred as the bubbly blond receptionist that was always adapting to young trends that Liz Lemon had nothing to do with. Lemon (Fey) was also quite jealous of the blonde's perky beauty. Who wouldn't be, right? Bowden starred in American Reunion, which seems to have spawned many future television stars. In the film, she is riding Oz (Klein) on the living room floor, then Heather (Suvari) comes in, and she's pissed. The girls get into a brief scuffle and Heather rips a large piece of Katrina's hair out. Then Heather leaves the room, and Katrina is still mad too, but hops back on Oz, only to twist her pelvis a little too violently as she gloats, " I f---d Mario Lopez!"
14 Ali Cobrin
We do enjoy the hot studio pics, but it's also nice to see a fun candid once in a while. And who doesn't love a rubber ducky? Here we have Ali Cobrin who did an awesome job in American Pie Reunion, although nobody has heard of the girl since. If you saw the film, you surely remember this charming brunette. She played the girl who got intoxicated and took her shirt off in Jim's (Biggs) car. Then she begged for him to be her first, and Jim did all he could to turn her down. Then she was too drunk to stand, but he still had to drop her off at her parent's house. He ended up calling Paul for help, while carrying her around, and dropping her, all while she remained completely topless.
13 January Jones
Here's an actress that sprung into stardom after her appearance in an American Pie film. January Jones starred in American Pie Wedding, and has since risen to fame with her role on Mad Men. Jones played Michelle's (Hannigan) sister, who Stifler (Scott) tried to woo at the country club. There's a memorable scene when Stifler acts like a total gentleman as a trick to get on Jones' good side. Of course his goody-two-shoes act, we all know, is not the Stifler way. There's a memorable scene where Stifler stands beside January and asks one of his friends to take a picture of them. Of course his friends all know this is just a terrible trick, and as he stands out of January's eye shot, he sticks out his tongue and wiggles it very suggestively, in true Stifler style. Classic.
12 Dania Ramirez
Dania Ramirez is another beautiful young actress who starred in American Reunion. She was seen hanging out in a hot string bikini, talking on the beach to Michelle. They were old friends from band camp and Michelle even asks her, "Remember that one time, at band camp, when we licked whip cream off each others---" Dania then puts an end to the sentence, saying, "Yeah, I remember." Dania did 3 episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which Hannigan also starred in, so their friendship may have been what helped get Dania the Pie part. Ramirez has kept busy lately, acting in ten episodes of Entourage. She also played one of the leads in Devious Maids, a mystery series on Lifetime. The show detailed the lives of four Beverly Hills maids who would get involved with the secrets and lies of their rich clients. The show ran for four seasons, ending in August of last year.
11 Alyson Hannigan
Alyson Hannigan is one of those girls who doesn't look like a ten at first, but then the more you get to know her, the hotter she gets. The things that she says and does makes her much hotter as well. Take for example the classic first film, American Pie. There she was, kind of blending into the background, and then she opens up her mouth, and what?! There goes those famous words, repeated throughout the films: "One time at band camp..." Next thing you know her character is a freak and she and Jim fall in love. One of her best Pie scenes is when she gets busy with herself in the bathtub in American Reunion. Hilarious! Hannigan is probably one of the most successful actresses on this list, after starring in How I Met Your Mother for its entire run of 9 years. On the dark side of fame, Alyson had a seriously insane stalker harassing her online, and his threats were so bad that she feared for her life and filed a restraining order. Yikes.
10 Candace Kroslak
Candace Kroslak played Brandy in American Pie: Naked Mile, and yes she did get naked. It's not just a clever title. Oh no, if there's one thing we know for sure it's that Pie movies thrive on nudity. Kroslak did admit to Maxim magazine that she felt a little nervous about getting naked in the film, and that she "freaked out right before," but then she said she realized that there were 260 other people disrobing for the film. "So, hey, why not? They did it. It wasn't that difficult but it was a little shocking at first, for sure," she said. Her big nude scene was taking Stifler (White) into the billiards room. While Stifler was telling her the rules of nine ball, and taking aim, she took her top off. Once he realized this, Stifler threw his pool cue out the window.
9 Beth Behrs
We all know this beautiful actress from the hit sitcom Two Broke Girls. She stars as a down-on-her-luck, once wealthy heiress, forced to wait tables after her family fortune dissolves. She co-stars with Kat Dennings, the well endowed brunette, whose crass attitude perfectly compliments Behrs' innocent/naive character. But we all know that anyone involved in an American Pie movie is not so innocent. Behrs had a pretty big role in American Pie: Book of Love. She showed a lot of cleavage and participated in some simulated action under the covers. I must hand it to her though, in doing research for this article it was difficult to find any super steamy photoshoots of Behrs stripping for the camera, like a lot of other actresses feel they need to do. She does however, have a smoking body and does show it off when the time is right, like when she wore a gold string bikini in an episode of Two Broke Girls.
8 Arielle Kebbel
This young actress, who bares a striking resemblance to Jessica Alba in this pic, played Elyse, one of the female leads in American Pie: Band Camp. One of her most memorable lines was to Matt Stifler. She asked him, "Are you okay?" He said, "Oh, yeah." Then she replied, "I'm so drunk right now, I'm probably going to forget about you porkin' an oboe." How is that for some low brow humor? The American Pie Series has made an art of the awkward sex joke, while simultaneously creating characters that are somehow endearing. The Stifler Family ends up dominating the later films, but even then, Stifler is reimagined as more of a Jim, with those bumbling virgin qualities.
7 Mena Suvari
Here we have a splendid candid shot of Mena Suvari by the pool. Mena was one of the original cast members and starred in American Pie, American Pie 2 and American Reunion. She skipped the third installment, American Wedding, probably because she was too busy at the time doing other projects. For a while there, Mena was on the Hollywood A-list. She was featured prominently in American Beauty, which won tons of Oscars, including best actor, actress, director, screenplay and picture. Mena played the seductive young friend of Kevin Spacey's daughter. As Spacey goes through a midlife crisis, he takes Mena to bed, but doesn't go through with the deed after she tells him she's a virgin. Seems like Mena had a film type there for a while, right? Want to do a movie about awkward sexual situations, Mena? America is in the title?
6 Jennifer Walcott
Jennifer Walcott is definitely not an actress. Most of the women on this list are not really actresses either. They are mostly pretty faces or hot bodies, who thought that getting into a major film would launch their acting careers, but it backfired big time, and exposed how poorly they could actually act. Walcott on the other hand, had no such notions. She just showed up to get naked. You can see her in a bathroom scene in American Pie: Band Camp standing there totally exposed before getting dressed. It's the classic locker room type scene that dates back to Porky's or Revenge of the Nerds. Walcott also shows off her stuff in Pool Boys. She was discovered by Carmen Electra and was featured as Playboy playmate of August 2001.
5 Jennifer Holland
This is actually the only movie screenshot on the list. Here we have Jennifer Holland looking spectacular on a motorcycle. This scene is from American Pie: Book of Love, and takes place right after her big nude scene, where she appears topless for quite some time in a dressing room. She is kind of a saucy gal in this film, and has the domineering type of attitude that a lot of guys go for. There is also an awesome fantasy-style three-way make-out scene, all girls, which she seems happy to participate in. Seems like Holland may have done too much too soon, career-wise. She experienced a lull in her career since the film but has potential to make a comeback. She was cast in the new TV series, Sun Records, which details the rise of the Memphis recording studio that launched music legends including Elvis and Johnny Cash. The series plays on MTV and CMT and is bound to give Holland some attention.
4 Nikki Ziering
Remember Beverly Hills, 90210? The original 90s hit had stars like Jason Priestly, Shannen Doherty and Ian Ziering. Well Ziering used some of his 90210 mojo and landed one of the hottest blondes on the face of the earth for a wife (they divorced in 02). In American Wedding, Nikki plays one of the strippers that Stifler hires to give Jim a bachelor party. Nikki plays the bad cop stripper who is dangerously attractive. Other than American Wedding, Nikki has also appeared in, you guessed it, Playboy magazine. In 1997 she was Miss September, and she was featured again in the July 2003 issue. Also of note, from 99-02 she was a spokesmodel for the best game show ever, The Price is Right. Nikki has been a guest on Howard Stern many times and also dabbled in reality TV shows, including I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here and Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling.
3 Michelle Suppa
Man, these gorgeous women just keep on coming, right? Here we have Michelle Suppa who absolutely killed it in American Pie: Beta House. She gets naked and gives an extraordinary lap dance by the poolside. But that's nothing compared to the strip show she also does in the film. You can see Suppa onstage with a bevy of hot girls all dressed in the classic Catholic school uniform. Suppa writhes around on a small stage, which features a swing, and is surrounded by a huge crowd of partygoers. Before you know it Suppa takes off her top and is bobbling her breasts around as the crowd goes wild. She also appeared in American Pie: Naked Mile, where she also disrobes. Then she has tequila poured over her breasts and licked off. At least we're pretty sure that's her. There is seriously SO MUCH nudity in these movies, especially the later ones, that it's really hard to keep track of who is who.
2 Shannon Elizabeth
Now back to the earlier films. Shannon is really the foundation of the list. She is the one that got the whole thing started. She set the tone for all of the debauchery to come. The first long, decidedly gratuitous topless scene in a series that based their franchise on topless scenes, we all know the character I'm talking about. Nadia was a foreign exchange student from Czechoslovakia with a peculiar attraction towards geeks like Jim. There's the famous scene where she makes him dance around and records it all on a webcam. Then Jim gets into bed with her, and she gets naked under the sheets, but Jim gets too excited and blows his opportunity. We have all wished we were Jim in that scene, and we have all pictured what we would have done differently to correct his mistake.
1 Tara Reid
Ah, yes, good old Tara Reid. Sure, she may not look as great right now, but damn was she fine back in the good old days. Tara was another one of the original cast members that appeared in the first film that launched them all. Her character, Vicky, and Kevin infamously do some top stuff in her bedroom called the "Tongue Tornado." Vicky yells, with hilarious timing, "I'm coming!" just as her dad yells at her from another room, asking her to come downstairs for dinner. That joke is really funny, and it's the type of humor the whole series has been based on. Although the acting has definitely gone downhill, these films are still worth watching, especially if you enjoy ample nudity, heavy drinking, and a good laugh or two.
