Angelina Jolie Named Number 1 Sex Symbol in Channel 4 Poll



Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie has topped a nationwide poll of the sexiest people in history, as voted for by the British public via the Channel 4 website. The results of the poll were counted down in 100 Greatest Sex Symbols, a four-hour special screened on Channel 4 on Saturday 24 February. The programme tempted, teased and titillated as it counted down the 100 sexiest people from the worlds of sport, TV and film – with mouth watering surprises.

The Oscar winning actress famous for her roles in “Girl, Interrupted”,  “Tomb Raider’’ and “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”, is known across the globe, not least for her controversial personal life,  but for many it is no surprise she has been crowned sexiest sex symbol of them all.

Jenny Shimziu, Angelina’s former girlfriend says: “I don’t think there’s one person that would say no to Angelina, in bed or just having a cup of coffee with her.”

Dylan Jones, Editor of GQ says: “The interesting thing about Angelina Jolie is that she’s the only woman that you’ll ever get other women saying ‘she’s the only woman I’d go gay for’ basically.”

100 Greatest Sex Symbols told the fascinating stories behind some of the most beautiful faces of our time and reveled in the unforgettable archive of their sexiest moments. The programme brought these icons together for the first time as it answered that all-important question: just who is the greatest ever sex symbol?

Hot on the heels of Jolie were the following:
Elvis Presley
3 Marilyn Monroe
4 Beyoncé Knowles
5 Brad Pitt
6 Lara Croft
George Clooney
8 Kylie Minogue
9 Johnny Depp
10 Scarlett Johansson

It seems beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder as the programme revealed some surprise entries, from funnymen to cartoon characters to superheroes.

100 Greatest Sex Symbols included interviews with the glamour model who spilled the beans on sleeping with sex symbols Steve McQueen, Tom Jones and Tony Curtis. The Osmonds and David Cassidy giving an insight into the perils of being a teenage heart-throb and a legendary photographer revealing what it felt like to be invited to bed by Marilyn Monroe.
