Depp, George Clooney and Hanks named top Christmas guests in Sky Movies poll

Post by Katiedot on Mon Dec 12 2011, 10:42

Really? Much as I love Johnny Depp, I'd take George over him as a houseguest any day. Somehow you just know Depp would come with his out-of-control children whereas George would show with at least a bottle of wine and maybe flowers. Your thoughts?

Depp, Clooney and Hanks named top Christmas guests in Sky Movies poll

added: 12 Dec 2011 // by: newsdesk

Johnny Depp, George Clooney and Tom Hanks are the Hollywood movie stars that the nation would most like to invite over for Christmas, according to a poll carried out by the Sky Movies HD Christmas Channel.

Heart-throb Depp - star of The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and most recently The Rum Diary was ahead of the rest with 7.6% of votes, followed by silver fox George Clooney (5.2%) and flanked by family favourite Tom Hanks who came in third place with 4.9%.

Sky Movies HD carried out the poll of over 1,000 UK movie fans to highlight that everyday throughout December viewers can share their living rooms with all their favourite A-listers. Themed film box sets running each day means there is something for everyone, from comedies, musicals, action thrillers and of course Christmas favourites too.

Hot on the heels of the trio of actors was an eclectic mix of female stars led by renowned British actress Emma Thompson (Nanny McPhee & The Big Bang, Christmas favourite Love Actually), Jennifer Aniston (Bruce Almighty, Marley & Me) and Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman), who received 4.8%, 4.7% and 4.3% each.

Brit stars Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Paul) and rom-com favourite Hugh Grant (Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral) were named in seventh and eighth places after claiming 4% and 3.8% respectively, while The Holiday star Cameron Diaz and funny man Jim Carrey, who famously starred together in mid 90s hit The Mask completed the top ten list of ideal Christmas guests with 3.7% and 3.6% each.

Ian Lewis, Director of Sky Movies comments: “Christmas movies are now as much a tradition as turkey and tinsel, so the launch of our festive season of daily box sets was the perfect reason to find out who audiences really want to share their Christmas with this year. The guys led at the top of the league and while Hanks and Clooney would both undoubtedly light up anyone’s Christmas, Depp was the clear winner for UK film fans. He is this year’s ultimate Christmas cracker!”

The Top Ten Hollywood Christmas Guests are:

1. Johnny Depp 7.6%
2. George Clooney 5.2%
3. Tom Hanks 4.9%
4. Emma Thompson 4.8%
5. Jennifer Aniston 4.7%
6. Julia Roberts 4.3%
7. Simon Pegg 4%
8. Hugh Grant 3.8%
9. Cameron Diaz 3.7%
10. Jim Carrey 3.6%
(others = 53.4%)

George is probably a great guest... no, the BEST guest: funny, entertaining and easy to be around. I like Johnny Depp too, but he is reserved and that's why I'd have to entertain him. Too demanding.
And with George, who knows *cough* the evening could end like this *cough* [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]or [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] *cough*




no just kidding, not with me *cough*

Let the 1,000 UK movie fans have Johnny Depp for Christmas. We will not argue with their choice. What do they know??? tongue
As long as we will have George with us we will be happy. Lots of happy Hoorah!

I'll send George over for the rest of you AFTER he opens his present from me on Christmas morning. IF he's not too tired that is!
