Ursula Andress tops poll for sexiest moments ever

Story by: Jack Foley

BOND girls continue to provide fantasy figures for generation upon generation of horny males, so it should come as little surprise to find that the first ever Bond babe topped a poll of the sexiest moments in screen history.

Ursula Andress was voted to have delivered the top moment in the Channel 4 poll, for the scene in which her character, Honey Rider, emerges from the sea, dressed in only a white bikini, in the Bond film, Dr No.

The 67-year-old actress, who was 26 at the time, beat off stiff competition from the likes of Sarah Michelle Gellar, George Clooney and Kim Basinger and Mickey Rourke to land the commanding position.

Second place went to Buffy: The Vampire Slayer star, Sarah Michelle Gellar, for her lesbian kiss with Selma Blair in the film Cruel Intentions, while Salma Hayek came third, for her erotic dance with a snake in Robert Rodriguez’s hip vampire flick, From Dusk Til Dawn.

The top rated male actor was George Clooney, who was nominated with Jennifer Lopez, for Out of Sight, for a scene in which they share a car boot during a prison escape sequence.

That moment, which also topped an Empire poll of the sexiest non-sex moments, amazingly beat the main seduction sequence, which has to rate among the finest put on-screen.

Commenting on the number one moment, a spokeswoman for Channel 4 said that it was ‘nice to see an iconic figure can stand the test of time and still be the sexiest screen siren against much younger competition’, while film critic, Bob McCabe, said that while the outcome was surprising (particularly in terms of how little nudity or sex actually featured in the top ten), ‘it just shows you that sexuality is about temptation’.

There were a number of surprise inclusions in the poll, which also incorporated TV moments, including a gay sex scenes from the Channel 4 programme, Queer as Folk, which made number seven on the list, and cartoon temptress, Jessica Rabbit, from the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, who came in at number eight.

Of the classic sex scenes, Marlon Brando’s infamous butter romp in Last Tango in Paris, as well as Michael Douglas’ extra-marital sex in Fatal Attraction, and Jack Nicholson’s romp in The Postman Always Rings Twice, made it into the top 100.
