hilarie burton esquire 1 'White Collar's' Hilarie Burton's sexy Esquire photos and interview“White Collar” returns for Season 3 on USA Tuesday night (June 7) at 9 p.m. ET and it brings with it a new regular cast member in Hilarie Burton as Sara Ellis, who Esquire magazine describes as “pretty much the most attractive insurance-claims investigator in the history of insurance.” Uh, yeah.

In the new issue of Esquire, Hilarie gets sexy for a photoshoot and also tells the interviewer some fun things about herself: 

  • “I move around a lot. I’ve lived in a ton of different places — and only for a month or two at a time. I have a deep, rabid curiosity, so I like having a gypsy life.”
  • “I like to write paper mail — nobody does that anymore — with my pen pals. John Doe from the band X played my dad on One Tree Hill, and he just collects post cards from all the places he’s toured and doesn’t write a whole lot. He’s not into that, but he’s a good pen pal. Still, you write things out when you actually write a letter. When you right an e-mail, it’s all smiley faces and LOLs and s***.”
  • “I’ve named a couple things after Edgar Allan Poe: the cat, and my garden upstate, where I only planted black flowers and purple flowers — and there’s a raven statue.”
  • “The plaid shirt: I’ve had it forever and ever and ever. It’s one of those things that I’ll drag along with me probably until I die.”
