Evangeline Lilly cleans up good.
Lost viewers are used to seeing mud streaked across the freckled features of Kate Austen, whose tank top is torn and fluttering in the island breeze.
In real life, the 29-year-old Canadian beauty looks slightly more pulled together, but without losing her girl-next-door charm or air of exotic mystery.
In short, she is a special breed of stunning.
Featured in the new issue of Women’s Health, the star was asked what Hollywood celebrities she admires most. Her #1 choice? Angelina Jolie. Why?
“No one knows that woman; she’s a complete ice queen, which is perfect," Lily says. "Why should she be any more? She doesn’t owe us anything.”
"I’d love to be her," she adds. "But just the humanitarian side.”
She would not cough up any Lost spoilers (if you will) on the status of her relationship with former co-star Dominic Monaghan, replying “If I were to tell you that Sandra Miggum and Henry Pickett are dating, would you ever care?"
"They’re completely fictional, you don’t know them,” Lilly tells Women's Health.
“Well, people don’t know us. So why should they care?”
We suppose that's a valid point, in a roundabout way.
