Nikki Cox has played sexy characters on television, but in real life she has eyes for only one man -- Bob "Bobcat" Goldthwait.
The 22-year-old star of the WB sitcom "Nikki" is engaged to the caffeinated comedian, who is 16 years her senior. The two met on the set of "Unhappily Ever After," the defunct WB comedy in which Cox got her big break and Gold-thwait was the voice behind a puppet named Mr. Floppy.
"I had a mad crush on him and told him so," she says in the March issue of Gear magazine. "He's a really shy, sweet-natured fellow. It's not like he's so boisterous and outgoing."
Cox says she knows the tight, skimpy outfits she wears on television give her the image of being a vixen, but that doesn't bother her.
"I would be completely ignorant to act like I'm here because I'm so . . . talented," she says. "I know it's because I fit the clothes."
