Emma Watson took the honors for being the sexiest female movie star in the planet, beating out the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway, Emma Stone and Mila Kunis.

But it was Benedict who landed the shock result, fending off competition from his fellow Brit Tom Hiddleston as well as Superman Henry Cavill, Iron Man Robert Downey Jr, Rush star Chris Hemsworth and good old Gosling.

"It's a great result for British stars, but what's clear is that it's less important to have lots of casual fans and better to have a dedicated hard-core," said James Dyer, editor of Empireonline.com. 

"The Cumberbabes, Hiddlestoners, Twi-hards and Cavilliers all made their opinions heard! This list also reflects the continuing popularity of superhero movies: six of the top ten men have played superheroes and five of the top ten women have appeared in comic-book movies," he added. Cumberbabes just sounds a bit weird doesn't it?
