It’s obvious that Rick Castle finds Kate Beckett extremely attractive, and now her portrayer Stana Katic is receiving accolades for her looks as well!

Stana rightfully earned a spot on Maxim’s 2013 “Hot 100” list, and at No. 60 is effectively hotter than beauties like Revenge’s Emily VanCamp, Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, and actress Jessica Chastain.

And even though we think Stana is one of the most beautiful creatures to ever grace our TV screen, according to Maxim, the No. 1 hot gal of 2013 is Miley Cyrus. Glee’s Lea Michele and Naya Rivera were also deemed hotter than our favorite TV detective, but we’re just thrilled landed a spot on the list.

At least we’ll have something to celebrate once Castle Season 5 ends this Monday, May 12. Do you think Stana deserved a better spot on Maxim’s “Hot 100” list? Tell us your thoughts below!
