Hepburn voted top female movie icon
Men and women are poles apart when it comes to choosing their top screen sirens, a new study has revealed.
While women opted for Audrey Hepburn's gamine charm in Breakfast At Tiffany's, men voted Ursula Andress their favourite female movie icon, a Radio Times poll found.
Bond girl Andress memorably emerged from the sea in a white bikini during the 1962 film Dr No.
Hepburn came fifth in the men's poll behind three popular female sci-fi sirens.
Sigourney Weaver in The Alien saga took second place, ahead of Carrie Fisher in Star Wars in third place and Jane Fonda in Barbarella in fourth.
In contrast, the top five as voted by women was dominated by musical legends, with Julie Andrews in The Sound Of Music in second place, followed by her Mary Poppins role in third and Judy Garland's performance in The Wizard Of Oz in fourth.
Julia Roberts took fifth place for her memorable role in Pretty Woman.
The top 50 most iconic women in film, spanning more than 75 years of cinema can be read in the Radio Times, out on Tuesday, April 6.
Approximately 2,000 people voted for their favourite from a shortlist chosen by Radio Times' film experts of both genders.
Commenting on the full results, film expert Barry Norman said: "You seem to have a penchant for naughty girls, women who play hookers: Catherine Deneuve in Belle de Jour, Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman and, of course - top of the heap - Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany's, although in the demure age in which it was made, just before the swinging sixties got under way, the nature of her profession couldn't be specified."
