Daniel Craig’s James Bond, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine have bene voted the sexiest male film characters of all time.

The new research by character-centric movie platform www.chili.com reveals how much a hot lead impacts on our movie experience, with 86 percent of Brits choosing to watch a film because they have the hots for the main character.

According to the data, a third of those polled admitted they would struggle to keep their cool if they met their on-screen crush in real life. And it seems fiction is even sexier than reality with the majority of Brits (52 percent) claiming they fancy sexy characters in films more than the actors who actually play them (48 percent).

CHILI founder and CEO, Giorgio Tacchia said: “Our research shows characters make us fall in love with films – some of the biggest hits and most popular franchises are built on the connection film fans feel for the leading man or lady.

“People don’t just watch characters, they feel for them, fall for them and even lust after them. At CHILI, we help fans get closer to their favourite characters with subscription free access to the big and small screen, original character merchandise, exclusive reviews and all the latest releases in digital form, months before terrestrial TV.”

There were more classic female icons in the top ten with Julia Roberts’ Pretty Woman character, Vivian Ward, coming in fourth with 15 percent of the votes and Honor Blackman’s Bond girl Pussy Galore in fifth with 14 percent. Marilyn Monroe’s Sugar Kane Kowalcyzk from Some Like It Hot came in sixth followed by Jane Fonda’s sixties sci-fi sexpot Barbarella (13 percent).

Patrick Swayze’s Johnny Castle from Dirty Dancing showed his enduring appeal by securing fifth place and Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow came in sixth. Sean Connery’s portrayal of James Bond may have been overtaken by Daniel Craig’s more modern counterpart but he still finished in the top ten with 16 percent.

    Now Angelina of the Lara Croft days that still had some flesh on her bones was one hell of a sexy woman…
    Now if anyone would ever come close to straightening a gay man in history it would have been her.
    I’ll pass over Daniel Craig’s Bond ,his face is like that of the reptilian overlords ..

    I certainly understand preferring the comic or novel version to the actor playing the character…
    In terms of looks WonderWoman and Cedric Diggory were certainly miscast…

    Halle Berry’s character (Jinx) in Die Another Day is easily the sexiest of all time.
    That scene where she comes out of water wearing an orange-coloured bikini, with a knife strapped to one side is legendary!
