The study from the University of British Columbia is clear -- 'smiley' guys are at a serious disadvantage when it comes to initial attraction, while single girls need to turn on the charm and send out some happy vibes. Applying this research to some well known faces, the celeb role models men and women need to study include:

  • Go To

Johnny Depp

Seldom seen smiling (except as Captain Jack Sparrow), Depp likes to project an air of moody mystery.

Steve McQueen

The legendary screen star projected the kind of quiet menace that women, apparently, find irresistible.

Silvio Berlusconi (pictured left)

The Italian politician and stereotypical Alpha Male's mystifying success with young women could be down to his mesmeric confidence.

Roy Keane

Smouldering? He's like a Leeside Mount Etna.

Colin Montgomerie

The Scottish golfer, cruelly dubbed 'Mrs Doubtfire' by US fans who claim he resembles Robin Williams's stern Scottish nanny character, may actually be projecting serious sex appeal. Or extreme grumpiness.

Women

Jennifer Aniston

Her ongoing man problems are a mystery since the former Friend is all about the perkiness.

Amy Huberman (pictured right)

Seldom seen without a million-dollar smile.

Pippa Middleton

That smile! That derriere!

Saoirse Ronan

Talent and a beguiling, girlish smile.
