Lea Michele is definitely a good looking gal, and now, she’s getting recognized for it in a major way. This year, the Glee actress claimed a coveted spot on the annual Maxim Hot 100 list, and it’s not her first time at this particular rodeo — Lea has made the list for the past three years!

So how does she keep impressing Maxim voters? Lea says she owes it all to one body part in particular: Her booty.

“I’ve been told that my butt is quite special,” Lea admitted to the mag. “I would agree.” No surprise there — she’s been known to tweet a photo or two of her bikini body when the mood strikes, occasionally from behind.

But Lea knows it’s not all about what’s on the outside. While she is pretty proud of her special butt, Lea’s also proud of her sense of humor. “I think making someone laugh is super sexy,” she added.

And when it comes to sexiness, Lea has it boiled down to a science. “Sexiness to me means feeling good in your own skin,” she said. “I feel the most sexy right after a hot shower or bath, with no makeup on. Just me.”

Not that Lea needs makeup — she’s gorgeous with or without it! But the best part of Lea posing for Maxim’s list? Her biting last words.

“Thank you so much to all my fans who voted for me to get on this list,” Lea said. “And I  hope all my ex-boyfriends are reading this now.” Ha!

Are you surprised Lea made the list, or was she a shoo-in once again?
