winter ave zoliWinter Ave Zoli. What do those three words mean? At first I thought it was a warm pasta dish great for cold weather, but I was wrong.

Winter Ave Zoli is a Pennsylvania-born actress, star of the FX biker-gang show Sons of Anarchy, and the March issue Playboy cover model. So much more than a plate of noodles.

Zoli has made a name for herself playing hookers, prostitutes, and porn stars, though in her Playboy interview, she insists she's nothing like that in real life. And I believe her. She seems so wholesome! And she's so pretty and smart and cool ... I may buy my first ever Playboy this week when it hits newsstands.

Here's what she had to say about her sexy roles and the photo shoot: (Love her!)

It is sort of a running joke in my family. I'm nothing like that in real life ... It turns out nudity is not a problem for me. It's one of those things you think about later and say 'Yeah, I could do this for a living.'

She totally has the right attitude. Open, honest, and 100% in control. When she was young, Zoli trained to be a ballerina in Prague (where her family lived during her middle school and high school days), and when she returned to New York, she studied at New York City's Atlantic Theater Company, which was co-founded by William H. Macy, and graduated from their professional program. Then, like probably half of her class, she moved to L.A. to pursue an acting career.

I don't know Zoli, but I wish I did. She sounds like a bright and talented woman with a solid head on her shoulders. It's nice to see a natural beauty with something to say on the cover of Playboy.

She told the magazine that she's happiest when she's with her horses, and spends "as much time as possible at my stable in the Hollywood Hills. It keeps me sane."

Classically trained international ballet dancer with an acting degree and a horse-lover? I think I want to date her.

What do you think of Winter Ave Zoli?
