When it comes to the most desirable Hollywood stars, it appears George Clooney and Jessica Alba are second to none.
In a poll conducted by Yahoo! Personals, singles were asked which celebrity male and female they would most like to date.
Gentleman George topped the male list, with the forever-shirtless Matthew McConaughey coming in as a close second. Other stars who find themselves the object of desire by female singles were hip hop impresario Kanye West, singer Ricky Martin, baseball star Derek Jeter and tennis pro Andy Roddick.
When single males were asked which celebrity starlet they would most like to find themselves in the company of, FHM’s 2007 “Sexiest Woman Alive” Jessica Alba was the top pick.
Jennifer Aniston finished second, followed by Queen Latifah, Jessica Simpson, tennis beauty Maria Sharapova, Sandra Oh and “Top Chef” vixen Padma Lakshmi.
Susan Mernit, Yahoo! Personals’ online dating expert offers her insight on what it is about George and Jessica that put them at the top of their class.
“It is obvious that both George Clooney and Jessica Alba are top of mind when it comes to ‘sexiest celebrity,‘ given their reigning titles for People magazine and FHM magazine, respectively,” Susan said. “In addition to people finding them physically appealing, it doesn’t hurt that they have both maintained a clean reputation while living in front of the cameras. That combination is most likely why our survey’s respondents find them so desirable.”
The poll was conducted to coincide with National Singles Week (Sept. 17 – 21).
