The woman who sparked a scandal when she was linked romantically to Brad PITT last year (04), has extended her time in the spotlight by revealing almost all in men's magazine Penthouse.

Actress/model APRIL FLORIO, 23, appears in a six-page spread in the adult magazine, but refused to bare all.

Instead, she again plays down the story that hit international headlines in 2004, insisting she was drawn into a scandal as Pitt's marriage to JENNIFER ANISTON was crumbling - and is still recovering from the exposure.

She says, "I spent a lot of time just trying to figure out what was going on. I spent most of the time trying to let people know that I wasn't responsible and just trying to get out of the whole thing."

Florio was linked to Pitt by a number of US publications when she was mistakenly identified as the mystery brunette who appeared with the movie hunk's doppelganger in Greece. Her agent MIKE ESTERMAN refused to deny the reports.

She adds, "I basically s**t my pants, because I didn't know what to do. At first I thought it was funny because I didn't think it would get as serious as it did."

Florio confirms she only had one brief meeting with Pitt at a party several years ago, but never romanced him. She feels sorry for Aniston because the actress had to read reports about her now-estranged husband's reported infidelity.

She explains, "It's a shame because I think she's the cutest thing."
