Eva Amurri, the daughter of Italian director Franco Amurri, and actress Susan Sarandon, doesn’t have to stray far from home for acting advice. Not that she needs it, judging from her new photo-shoot in Maxim magazine.

Amurri, 26, is probably best known for her racy scenes in “Californication,” where she plays a stripper, student and love interest of Hollywood writer Hank Moody played by David Duchovny.

She says loved the role. “I’ve wanted to play that part my entire life,” she tells the magazine.

“You can tell from the way girls dress on Halloween, we just want to wear cute outfits that let us show off.

“We’re always told, ‘You can’t look like a slut,’ so to be able to prance around like we do in our bedrooms, it was a dream come true.

Ammuri also got into her Maxim shoot. “I imagined I was the sexy wife left alone, posing around the house in lingerie,” she said.

My fiancé [Fox soccer analyst Kyle Martino] visited the set, and we got engaged the next day. Everybody’s been teasing him, ‘The Maxim shoot sold you, huh?’”

Having a famous Hollywood mom, hasn’t been a particular hindrance for her because she resembles her father and her name is different she says.

“But people love “got off the bus from Idaho” stories, so they’re not rooting for you if you’re from a family that’s done it.

They think you don’t deserve it, even if you’re working to fight that perception. But it’s also great in some ways, so, you know, don’t cry for me, Argentina,” she says.

Even so, mom gave her a leg up. Amurri had a role in the 2002 film “The Banger Sisters,” in which her mother starred.

She guest-starred, along with her mother, on an episode during Season 7 of the hit sit-com “Friends.”

But it’s been all Ammuri from there.

Ammuri just shot a movie with Donald Faison called “Stag,” a comedy about a bachelor party.

She plays a “nightmare high-maintenance starlet,” what she calls an “extreme stereotype.”
