"I didn't know how scrutinized I'd be," she recently told USA Today. "My brother called me and said, 'I'm in Heathrow, and there's a 12-foot picture of you upside down in a negligee.'"

That's pesky brothers for you, isn't?

Despite this, Maggie claims that AP are one of her favourite underwear brands, giving her a confidence booster after the birth of her daughter, Ramona.

"They make nursing bras, and I went right in there and bought three pairs of matching bras and underwear that made me feel so good about myself," she said. "I found myself, six months after having a baby, in my underwear, getting my picture taken. How did I get here? It was like playing a character. They're sexy, but they also have a little bit of irony in them. I love that."
