Hollywood hunk Johnny Depp was the most searched name in movies this year (05), by users of internet film bible IMDB.com.

More film fans searched for the Pirates Of The Caribbean hunk's biography and filmography on the internet database, which receives 30 million visitors a month, than any other celebrity.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt followed close behind thanks to their high-profile relationship and their film Mr And Mrs Smith, up from number five and number eight in 2004 respectively.

The Notebook beauty Rachel McAdams and Latina star Jessica Alba were newcomers to the 25, landing at numbers 17 and 6, while NAPOLEON DYNAMITE star Jon Heder and Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria entered at 19 and 22.

IMDb.com managing editor KEITH SIMANTON says, "The STARmeter reflects actual public interest in an individual celebrity. This list captures a snapshot in time of just how much attention these stars attracted.

"It's also interesting to see who tumbled out of the top 25 this year - a list that includes Jennifer Garner, who was on maternity leave for a good portion of the year; Viggo Mortensen, who needed more than a HISTORY OF VIOLENCE to keep his Aragon standing of No 23 last year; and Halle Berry, whose Catwoman turn last year kept her in the spotlight at No 19 but who is at No 63 this year."
