Benedict Cumberbatch and Emma Watson both just earned a pretty big honor. During a fan-voted survey, the “Sherlock” star and “Harry Potter” alum were named the two sexiest movie stars on the entire planet.
The list comes courtesy of Empire magazine, so it makes sense that fans of the UK mag would vote two Brits to the top. However, there’s no denying that both Cumberbatch’s and Watson’s fame continue to grow as the years go on, nor that this honor is well-deserved. They were up against some stiff competition as well, as the likes of both Jennifer Lawrence and Ryan Gosling made the top 5 spots.
For the men, the top 10 rank: Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Henry Cavill, Ryan Gosling, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Robert Pattinson, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman and Bradley Cooper. That’s pretty much Marvel’s entire lineup of leading men (Chris Evans ranked at no. 15), while Fassbender, Jackman and Cavill all are known for roles in other superhero movies. That leaves Gosling and Pattinson as the odd ducks out of this comic book-dominated movie star world.
The top 10 ladies were a bit more diverse. After Watson came: Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway, Emma Stone, Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman, Angelina Jolie and Zoe Saldana. Here we see an equal spread of both young adult franchise stars and comic book super heroines, bringing together a mix of actresses the world loves to love.
