Winnie Cooper Making a Comeback: Who's the Hottest Former Child Star?
Winnie Cooper, look at you now! The girl Kevin Arnold longed for on "The Wonder Years" is all grownup -- and dreamier than ever.
Danica McKellar, the actress who played girl-next-door Cooper on the late-'80s/early-'90s TV classic, is set to return to the small screen in the Syfy TV movie "Tasmanian Devil," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
But beyond the tube, McKellar is best known for her lethal combination of beauty and brains. After her first career as a child star, McKellar went on to become a summa cum laude math scholar and author of three New York Times bestsellers, "Math Doesn't Suck," "Kiss My Math" and "Hot X: Algebra Exposed." The 36-year-old actress also gave birth to her first baby last year.
