Jim Carrey and Nicole Kidman were the number one box office stars in America in 2003, according to a new theatre owners poll.

The box-office Top 10 comes from a poll of representatives from the major theatre chains, as well as smaller independents.

Carrey has hovered in the Top 10 since 1998, but this marks his first time at the head of the list. Kidman, who won an Oscar for The Hours last year (03), makes her third appearance on the poll.

Kidman's ex-husband Tom Cruise, who has been number one a record six times, ended up in fourth place in the new count.

Also in the new Top 10 were Jack Nicholson, Johnny Depp, Julia Roberts, Russell Crowe and Tom Hanks.
