Harrison's The Man

Besides being PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive, Harrison Ford, 56, is America’s favorite movie star, according to a poll released Tuesday, with the late John Wayne rating second place. The annual Harris poll of America’s box office favorites, based on interviews with 1,010 adults, found that Ford was the No. 1 choice among people aged 18 to 24, as well as for American adults overall. Western movie hero John Wayne, who died in 1979, was the second most popular star, ahead of Mel Gibson, who came in third, and Clint Eastwood and Tom Cruise, who shared fourth place. (Eastwood topped the list last year.) Other stars in the Top 10 list were Jack Nicholson, Brad Pitt, Sean Connery, Denzel Washington and Wesley Snipes. The highest ranking female movie star was Julia Roberts, who took the 15th spot.

  • Stars who dropped off the Top 10 list this year included Kevin Costner, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Richard Gere.
