Charisma Lee Carpenter (born July 23, 1970; English pronunciation: /kəˈrɪzmə liː ˈkɑːrpəntər/)is an American actress. She is best known for playing the character Cordelia Chase in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off Angel, for which she was nominated for four Saturn Awards. Her most recent role was playing opposite Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham in The Expendables (2010).
In the June 2004 issue of Playboy magazine, Carpenter appeared in a ten-page nude layout and on the cover. When asked by People magazine in 2005 about her nude pictorial and whether or not she would ever pose for Playboy again, she replied, "I don't know. I did Playboy for a very specific reason. Not only was it a good financial move, but it was about the place I was at in my life. I had just had my son [Donovan] and I'd gained 50 lbs. during pregnancy. I wanted to get back to my old self. I wanted to feel desirable and sexy. So I thought, 'What if I went full throttle?'"
