FHM dropped its US edition, but the magazine is still very much alive in other places. Anyhow, Leighton and Summer are absolutely gorgeous.

FHM doesn't have a magazine anymore. How is this list even relevant?

I'm sorry, but none on this list hold a candle to Summer Glau, who is by far, not only the hottest star on TV, but one of the hottest women in the world. Summer forever.
