Evangeline Lilly doesn't like the attention her derriere is receiving.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug star stopped by Conan on Wednesday, Dec. 4 and revealed that she is not too pleased with her recent Women's Health magazine cover.

"They go, 'Best. Butt. Ever.' and they have an arrow going to your butt," Conan O'Brien said, as he whipped out the mag. The photograph features Lilly showing off her enviable backside, while sporting a T-shirt and underwear. "And I'm just curious, is that something that they tell you before you do the shoot? Did you know that they were going to do that?"

"No!" the 34-year-old Canadian shrieked. "You think I would have done the shoot if they said, 'Oh by the way, we're gonna say 'Best Butt Ever' and put a big arrow to your behind," pointing to her bottom.

"Every woman is after a sort of classy image," the actress explained. "I didn't want T&A on my cover, it's a women's magazine. It's not Maxim."

The late night host asked Lilly if she called the magazine to voice her opinions.

"Yeah, actually I did!" she exclaimed, while making a roaring noise.

"So you became a pirate, that's what happened," Coco quipped.

Lilly portrays the Silvan Elf, Tauriel, in the latest installment of the action-adventure series, based on J.R.R. Tolkien's famed novel. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, hits theaters on Dec. 13.
