Tara Reid: Arctic Angel

The most luscious ingredient of American Pie.


Tara Reid fulfilled the fantasy of teen boys everywhere when she played a goody-two-shoes girlfriend who finally agrees to please her partner in last summer's sensation American Pie. Now there are gushy, breathless Web sites dedicated to her loveliness and a pack of Hollywood producers lined up to capitalize on her burning-hot status. Reid's follow-up is both more of the same and something different. In Body Shots she plays an L.A. club crawler who gets knee-deep in trouble when she flirts with the wrong guy on an especially out-of-control evening. With the heat she's generating on-screen and the heat she's feeling from the limelight, it's no wonder Reid didn't mind pretending she's out in the cold for the cameras. In fact, she looked so cool in these winter wraps we decided to ask her about all things cool.
