Salma Hayek tops sexiest celebs list

Thursday, July 12, 2007 |

Young and pin-thin celebs may line the glossies at the checkout counter, but when it comes to Tinsel Town’s sexiest, neither attribute seems necessary, if even desirable.

If Encino, Calif.-based polling firm E-Poll Market Research is to be believed, the average age of Hollywood’s 15 sexiest celebrities is 36. And unlike the shrinking divas of young Hollywood — a cadre that includes Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie and the Olsen twins — most of the women on E-Poll’s list have something else in common: curves.

Topping the list is shapely Latina Salma Hayek.According to the polling firm, which provides appeal rankings for more than 3,000 celebrities (both men and women), 65 percent of the U.S. population would use the term “sexy” to describe the 40-year-old star. To put that in perspective, the average celebrity garners a 15 percent rating on the E-Poll index. And there’s no question she has her male counterparts beat: at 39 percent, Matthew McConaughey may top the celebrity men in E-poll’s exhaustive database, but he ranks only 41st overall.
