Morena Baccarin is Esquire's latest "Women We Love" subject and it's quite obvious why. The gorgeous actress stripped down to nothing but black lingerie for her photo shoot in the mag's October 2012 issue.

In the article, Baccarin, who plays Jessica Brody in Showtime's hit drama Homeland, discusses gambling, her past roles on sci-fi shows, her pixie hairdo and what to expect from her character in season two.

"This season, I finally get to stop crying into my pillow," Baccarin says. "I just read the first episode of the season, and there's this emergence of the political life. My character likes the meeting of people, the rubbing of elbows, just the possibility of getting to Washington. She's coming to life this year."
