Angelina Jolie has become the only woman to be voted one of the Top 10 Ultimate Action Heroes Of All Time.

The Oscar-winning star of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and recent action spy thriller Salt was ranked alongside Hollywood hardmen including Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger following the survey conducted by online sports nutrition brand www.myprotein.com.

Angelina only made it to number seven with two per cent of the vote, but she was the only woman in the top ten, which was headed by tough guy Stallone.

The 64-year-old star of Rocky, Rambo and The Expendables scooped 31 per cent of the vote and beat Terminator star Schwarzenegger, who came second with 24 per cent.

Die Hard's Bruce Willis, who made a cameo along with Schwarzenegger in Sly's action movie homage The Expendables, was third with 15 per cent, and martial arts legend Bruce Lee was fourth. Jean Claude Van Damme rounded off the top five.

Steven Seagal was voted into sixth place, while Chuck Norris, Will Smith and Jason Statham all finished behind Angelina in the poll, with less than one per cent of the vote each.

Almost 2,000 British men and women took part in the poll to vote for their ultimate action hero.
