Jessica Alba and Hugh Jackman have been voted the sexiest super actors of all time. Stunning Jessica, who won for her role as Susan Storm in The Fantastic Four, beat off stiff competition from Daredevil star Jennifer Garner and X-Men beauty Halle Berry.
A spokeswoman for Pearl and Dean, the cinema advertisers who conducted the poll, said: "It's no surprise that so many people find superheroes sexy in the movies. The combination of toned bodies, incredible powers and the all-important tight-fitting costume on the big screen is too appealing to resist. Although it looks like underpants-over-the-trousers look hasn't worked so well for Superman."
But Jessica recently said she wanted to be admired for her acting ability and not her sex appeal. She told America's GQ magazine: "I hope all my new work will help producers in getting past my hotness."
The other heroines to make the poll's top five were Supergirl Helen Slater and Alicia Silverstone for her portrayal as Batgirl in 'Batman and Robin'. Hugh was the clear winner in the men's poll for his role as Wolverine in X-Men, leaving Batman Christian Bale and Spider-man Tobey Maguire to battle it out for second and third place. 'Ghost Rider' star Nicolas Cage and Brandon Routh -who played Superman in Superman Returns - were also in the top five.
