July 19, 2000 - Tyra Banks and her Coyote Ugly costars Piper Perabo, Bridget Moynaham, Izabella Miko, and Maria Bello were featured in this month's Maxim magazine.

Sweet, pure, with just a little touch of badness going on with that innocence." There's plenty more of course, so check out this month's issue.
