Maria Menounos (Greek: Μαρία Μενούνος) (born June 8, 1978) is a Greek-American actress, journalist, and television presenter known in America for her appearances as a correspondent for Today and Access Hollywood, and abroad for co-hosting the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 in Athens, Greece.
We’ve all done it… we’ve all ‘reluctantly’ sat and watched E! with our girlfriends, whilst secretly ogling the hot presenters. Take Greek goddess Maria Menounos, for example. Queen of the red carpet interview, Menounos is a veteran of the FHM 100 Sexiest Women poll, first appearing in 2003, at #79.
Starting out as a humble employee of Dunkin’ Donuts, Menounos thankfully resisted the doughy delights, instead maintaining her striking physique and knockout good-looks to win presenting jobs on Entertainment Tonight, The Today Show and Access Hollywood.
Don’t forget her stints on hit shows Without a Trace, One Tree Hill and Scrubs, and a fleeting appearance as herself in 2008’s spoof movie, Tropic Thunder. She also hosted the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest but we guess you missed
