Don’t let Sophia Bush’s demure public demeanor fool you.
The Chicago PD star, 31, has a sexy side and she showed it off for Maxim in its issue that hits newsstands on March 25.
Sporting a skintight see-thru corset (a different photo not pictured shows Bush stripped down to black lace panties with her arms covering her chest area), the actress eventually took the attention off her svelte physique to talk all things work.
Having been consistently employed since kicking off her career, Bush calls it “funny,” explaining, “It’s not often that someone gets a job at 20 and then does it for a decade. Those are the years you’re supposed to be growing and exploring new things … But this show? It feels like the job I was supposed to be doing.”
“The restaurant scene is fantastic and there are a lot of great little bars,” she says. “Our adventures are mostly about finding rare whiskeys and then dancing our faces off.”
