Lacey Chabert poses in a sexy, white bra and panties set on the November cover of Maxim.

Chabert, 31, is photographed in sexy lingerie inside the mag and also dishes about her well-known roles as Claudia in Party of Five (1994-2000) and Gretchen Wieners in Mean Girls (2004).

Chabert, who calls herself a “nice girl next door,” admits that she worked hard to get in shape for the cover shoot, saying “I got the call from Maxim and then immediately put down the cupcake and ran to the gym.”

It worked: Chabert flaunts her flat abs while divulging the secret to her long-lasting success (she was 12 when she was cast in Party of Five).

“I really can’t take any credit other than saying I grew up in a really protective family,” she says when asked how she avoided the downfall of young Hollywood stars.

But, Chabert admits she loves a good time: “I’m a nice girl next door, but I love a good weekend in Vegas. Blackjack, roulette, four-card pocker, slots…all of it.”

This is not the first time Chabert has landed on the cover of Maxim. She was also their cover girl in January 2007, and was recently voted the number 4 hottest cover in Maxim history. Chabert’s Maxim cover hits stands Oct. 14, and you can catch her before then in the SyFy original movie Scarecrow, airing Oct. 5 at 9 p.m.
