Malin Maria Åkerman ([ˈmɑːlɪn ˈoːkər.ˈman]; born May 12, 1978) is a Swedish Canadian actress, model and singer. She is best known as an actress, first making appearances in several Canadian productions. In the early 2000s, she had many television and film parts, including The Utopian Society (2003) and Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (2004). Following a supporting role on the comedy series The Comeback (2005), Åkerman gained her first starring roles in the feature films The Heartbreak Kid (2007) and 27 Dresses (2008).

Åkerman was cast as Silk Spectre II in the 2009 superhero film Watchmen, a role for which she was nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress. The same year, she had supporting and starring roles in both The Proposal and Couples Retreat, two commercial hits that garnered mixed to negative reviews. In 2010, she became part of the main cast on the comedy series Childrens Hospital. She starred in four feature films in 2012, including the comedy Wanderlust and the musical film Rock of Ages. In 2012, she had a recurring role on the sitcom Suburgatory and starred in the short-lived ABC comedy series Trophy Wife from 2013 to 2014.

Apart from acting and occasional modelling, Åkerman has had a brief music career as the lead vocalist for alternative rock band The Petalstones, but eventually left to focus on her acting career. She was married to the band's drummer Roberto Zincone from 2007 until 2013.

Biography

Åkerman was born in Sweden and grew up in Canada; she has "conflicting feelings" for the two countries. In an interview for Toronto Star, she said, "Every time I'm in Canada I feel more Swedish, and every time I'm in Sweden I feel more Canadian. I belong in both places and I love them both equally." She holds both Swedish and Canadian passports. Apart from speaking fluent English and Swedish, she also speaks French and Spanish. She describes herself as a feminist as she believes in equal treatment for both sexes, but also considers that "We [women] are different", adding that she "embrace[s] those differences." She has revealed that she is dyslexic and said that it took her "a long time" to learn her lines. "I get horrified when I have to do table reads with the whole cast, because there’s a lot of stuttering coming from me, so I have to do a lot of prep", she explained. Because of this, she prefers to improvise her lines.

Åkerman was raised a Buddhist, which inspired the lotus flower tattoo on her upper back. She also has a tattooed 'Z' on her right wrist, honouring her husband, Italian musician Roberto Zincone. The two met in 2003 when Åkerman was the lead singer for The Petalstones, for which Zincone served as the drummer. After band practices, they usually socialized, using a dictionary as he could not speak English. They eventually started dating and married at Grand Hotel Moon Valley in Sorrento, Italy on June 20, 2007. The couple had one son, Sebastian Zincone, born on April 16, 2013. On November 25, 2013, the couple announced that they were separating. Zincone filed for divorce on December 2, 2013.

Åkerman is noted for frequently appearing in nude scenes in her films, such as The Heartbreak Kid and Watchmen. She has stated that she feels comfortable as long as the scenes are not gratuitous. In an interview for Daily Mail, she commented, "I spent a lot of time as a child in Sweden; it’s natural there ... I don't know many women who go to bed with their husband at night and have sex with a bra on ... So let's make it real in the movies." In 2008, she made her first appearance on AskMen.com's "99 Most Desirable Women" list at number 60. The same year, men's magazine Maxim placed her at number 59 in their annual "Hot 100" rankings. The following year, the magazine ranked her at number four. Although admitting that sex appeal is one of the "best assets", Åkerman considers being beautiful both "a blessing and a curse", stating, "I tend to get a lot of scripts in which people want me to play the trophy wife, which is frustrating because I want the interesting, meaty roles."

In 2012, Åkerman travelled to Tanzania with Opportunity International, and has since begun support of their international development work, becoming a Young Ambassador for Opportunity in June 2012 and hosting a fundraiser for Opportunity in October 2012.
