Melissa Rauch, Maxim

Harper Smith/Maxim Magazine


Melissa Rauch is ditching her nerd glasses and conservative attire for a sexy S&M-inspired photo shoot with Maxim.

The Big Bang Theory actress amped up the sex appeal in the lingerie-clad spread and definitely seemed confident rocking a beaded corset.

And while her character Bernadette works at a Cheesecake Factory, it turns out that the True Blood babe has yet to step foot inside the eatery.

"I've actually never been! However, I am similar to Bernadette in that we both spent some time waiting tables," she told the magazine.

"I worked at a sports bar in New York City during college. It was before fantasy football was online, so people would come in with their notebooks. One time I spilled a pitcher of beer all over someone's fantasy notebook. It really f—ked up his draft."

Clearly, her waitress days are long gone! And now that she's a bona fide star, she's going to try her luck at finding a leading man in real life.

So what kind of dude is she looking for?

"I absolutely love a funny guy," she shared. "I am a sucker for it. It's my No. 1 requirement."
