Tom Cruise has been crowned the ultimate Hollywood heartthrob, topping the list of ‘sexiest male actors’ in a poll conducted by Showcase Cinemas on Mother’s Day. The 60-year-old actor, known for his role in Top Gun: Maverick, secured the top spot by beating legendary actor Robin Williams. The poll, which asked 2,000 mothers to pick the sexiest male actors of all time and their favourite film, saw The Sound of Music named as the most-loved movie, closely followed by Titanic.
Jon Dixon, of Showcase Cinemas, revealed that the voting was extremely tight, with so many classics making the top ten. He added that Cruise came top in the list of favourite movie stars, just edging out Robin Williams, while actors including Tom Hanks, Patrick Swayze, Robert Redford and John Wayne followed behind. Other films in the top ten included Mamma Mia!, Pretty Woman, Dirty Dancing and Gone With The Wind.
