Lake Bell provided the sexual tension in last night’s HBO’s series “How to Make it in America.” The 32-year-old actress is topless in a sex scene in the current episode, and looks beyond hot.
The show tracks the lives of two New Yorkers trying to make it in the highly competitive fashion industry.
The series is executive produced by Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson, Rob Weiss and Julian Farino, the crew who created the highly successful HBO series “Entourage.”

“How to Make it in America” is supposed to be the successor to “Entourage,” except set in New York’s glitzy fashion industry.
After its debut season last year, it received mixed reviews from critics, and is definitely ramping up the action in Season Two.
The series charts Ben Epstein (Bryan Greenberg) and friend Cam Calderon (Victor Rasuk) as the try to make it big in fashion.
The new season premiered on Oct. 2. In Sunday’s second episode, Bell stole the show.
She plays Rachel Chapman, who is Ben’s on-again, off-again girlfriend.
While trying to find herself, she works as an interior designer, after stints in Africa and as a journalist.
Bell’s acting credentials include the Rose Bruford College of Speech and Drama in London, a highly regarded acting school.
She’s held her own against high-powered talent, including Alec Baldwin, Meryl Streep and Steve Martin in 2009’s “It’s Complicated.”
But she brings a different talent to Sunday’s episode, entitle, “Money, Power, Private School.”
It’s purely physical.
At the end of Season One, Ben and Rachel were off-again. And, this season started with them playing cat-and-mouse over whether they would get back together.
After an awkward encounter with Ben, Rachel decides to visit her East Village weed dealer Domingo (Kid Cudi) and before long they end up in bed.
Dom ends up with serious hots for her, although Rachel may not feel the same.
In any event, the scene shows Lake at her sexiest. Check out the video below from egotastic and her hot photos.
