James Bassil, editor-in-chief of the website, said: "I think it has a lot to do with the broadening profile of internet users, who are varying more and more in both age and background.

"I also think a lot of guys are surprised to hear Sofia's [almost] 40, because she doesn't look it."

American model-and-actress Kate Upton was voted runner-up, while 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' actress Rooney Mara was in third, followed by Miranda Kerr and Nicki Minaj respectively.
