Pitt's Fight Club Turn Triumphs In Cool List

Hollywood star BRAD PITT's anarchy-driven hunk TYLER DURDEN has been hailed the coolest character in movie history.

JEFF BRIDGES landed second place for his part as laid-back hippy THE DUDE in THE BIG LEBOWSKI, while masked STAR WARS villain DARTH VADER bagged third place - thanks to a joint effort from DAVID PROWSE and JAMES EARL JONES..
