American Pie Hottie Shannon Elizabeth Discusses Her Character’s “Lack Of Costume”

|

American Reunion opens wide today, allowing us to catch up with Jim, Stifler (and his mom!), Finch and the rest of the East Great Falls crew. But personally, we’re probably most excited to reconnect with Shannon Elizabeth, who stripped her way into teen movie history as the sultry exchange student, Nadia! VH1 News was lucky enough to speak to the actress at the red carpet premiere of Cirque Du Soleil’s “Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour” in New York City this week, where she looked just as lovely as she did in Jason Biggs’ bedroom.

Even though it’s become a modern classic, Shannon admits it’s still weird to see herself on film 13-years younger in the original American Pie. “We were babies,” she says. “We didn’t even look like adults then! I know at the time we thought we were adults. But now it’s like, ‘OK, now we look like adults.’”

Though the 90s tinge of the original makes it look a little dated, it’s not the fashion choices that make Shannon cringe. “Maybe my lack of costume,” she admit. “I think that might be it for me.” It’s true that Shannon does spend a major part of the film wearing next to nothing. “Yeah, well, it worked for the time for the film, so what can I say? I made it through.” What a pro! Check out more in the video clip, and see the gallery below for some of Shannon’s hottest clothed looks.
