Alyssa Milano Goes (Almost) Topless For Maxim

Alyssa Milano is unbuttoning her flannel for the July/August issue of Maxim magazine.

The Mistresses star strips down to nothing but white booty shorts, a button-down blue shirt and a necklace for her sexy cover shot.

The 40-year-old actress and mom, who looks like she hasn’t aged a day since she kicked butt in Double Dragon nearly 20 years ago, chatted with the men’s mag about child stardom, her ideal date, Mistresses and more.

Alyssa discusses her experience as a kid in the spotlight, saying, “That was an era when TV child actors just didn’t work after their show was over. I think Christina Applegate and I are the only two who maintained some sort of career path past the shows that launched us. But I have a great family, and I look at a lot of these kids who struggle in the industry and think they’d have struggled no matter what they did.”

Milano got her big break in 1984 playing lovable tomboy Sam on the Tony Danza sitcom, Who’s The Boss. She’s been working steadily since the ’80s, starring in hit shows like Charmed and My Name Is Earl.

The TV star gave birth to her first son, Milo, with husband Dave Bugilari in 2011.
