As part of the promotions for this summer's release of her new movie "Conan the Barbarian," Rachel Nichols graces the cover of the August 2011 issue of Maxim magazine.
The 31-year-old Augusta, Maine native doesn't disappoint as she offered up a sexy swimsuit-laden spread while chatting with the publication about topics such as foods she loves and her desire to write a female's pickup-artist book.
With Miss Nichols' Maxim photos below, highlights from the accompanying interview are as follows:
Food she loves:
Sweetbreads: "Glands are fantastic. Who wouldn't like some glands for dinner?"
"I blogged about pimping my ride. I don't have spinners, but my wheels are pretty dope."
Fan of The Game:
"I'd love to meet Neil Strauss. I want to write the female version of his pickup-artist book."
Not So Favorite Bulgarian Drink:
"If you ask for a martini, they pour something in a glass from a bottle called 'Martini.'"
