Megan Fox is desirable. So are Kate Beckinsale, Eva Mendes, Jessica Alba, Beyonce and Access Hollywood’s own Maria Menounos.
But when it comes to the most desirable of them all – none of these stars come close to “Entourage” beauty Emmanuelle Chriqui, at least according to the folks at AskMen.com.
The popular men’s Web site has released the results of its annual Top 99 Most Desirable Women poll, with Emmanuelle – who plays the raven-haired bombshell Sloan on the hit HBO series — coming out on top.
And as far as she is concerned, just being mentioned among some of Hollywood’s elite beauties on the list (which was based on the traits men see “most in a potential companion such as intelligence, humor, talent, and character”) is an honor in itself.
“Hearing what the Top 99 vote is made of is the biggest compliment of all because it’s not just about being ‘hot’ but about being a well-rounded woman,” Emmanuelle told AskMen.com. “That’s really empowering and is just a massive compliment to me – people recognize that I care about other things.”
Coming in second in the poll, in which more than 6 million votes were cast, was Victoria’s Secret model Marisa Miller, with British big screen beauty Kate Beckinsale finishing third, Brazilian Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio coming in fourth and actress Jessica Alba rounding out the top five.
“It’s refreshing to see a respected but relatively low-profile actress like Emmanuelle top the Top 99, while many of the tabloid regulars didn’t even make it,” AskMen.com editor-in-chief James Bassil said. “To me, this outcome really reflects what is unique about our annual list: that it is a real indicator of the kind of women that men want, rather than simply those ones that we are continuously exposed to.”
Rounding out the top 10 were Beyonce, Penelope Cruz, UK reality personality Cheryl Cole, last year’s winner Eva Mendes and a third Victoria’s Secret model – Miranda Kerr.
Other notable names to make the list included Megan Fox (#11), Scarlett Johansson (#23), Zoe Saldana (#33), Kim Kardashian (#42), Taylor Swift (#51), Anne Hathaway (#61), Blake Lively (#85), Access’ Maria Menounos (#87) and Angelina Jolie (#88).
“The AskMen.com Top 99 list has been my annual ego boost time, and one that I want to savor while I can,” Maria joked.
Former “Sopranos” star – and Emmanuelle’s part-time “Entourage” guest-star — Jamie-Lynn Sigler closed out this year’s list, coming in at #99.
