The 31-year-old, whose roles have included War Horse and Thor 2 - topped the list in a poll for Total Film magazine.

Jennifer Lawrence, who starred in The Hunger Games and landed a Golden Globe for Silver Linings Playbook this week, was judged to be the sexiest woman in the list.

Hiddleston said: “My sister used to say I had hair like a broom. She was probably right.

“One of the great flaws we all share is that we think everyone else is cool, everyone else is sexier, everyone else has all the answers. That was me too.”

James Bond star Daniel Craig finished at number 15 in the list published today in the magazine.

Alan Rickman was ranked in seventh place at the age of 66. He beat stars such as Brad Pitt and George Clooney.

Total Film editor Jane Crowther said: “The thousands of readers who voted clearly show that the concept of sexy doesn’t fit a stereotype - though it’s very good news for British men judging by the number of British gents making the top ten.”
