Jude Law has been named the "hottest film father" - beating competition from George Clooney, Will Smith and even Darth Vader.
The poll of more than 1,500 film fans to mark Father's Day saw heartthrob Jude come out on top for his role as a shy widower in rom-com The Holiday.
Will Smith came second for heart-warming tale The Pursuit Of Happyness, in the poll carried out by Lovefilm.
Caped Star Wars villain Darth Vader was a surprisingly popular choice for the top father, pushing Hollywood hunk George Clooney into fourth place.
Lovefilm editor Helen Cowley said: "While he may have a reputation for being a ladies' man, Jude Law has proven he is a good father both on and off the screen and he sets pulses racing as the hottest film father we've ever seen.
"We were slightly surprised to see Lovefilm members vote Darth so highly on this list but clearly the dark side works for him."
The top 10 included Liam Neeson, Gregory Peck, Sir Sean Connery, Bruce Willis, Mr Incredible and Patrick Dempsey.
