Saving Private Ryan, Cast Away and Apollo 13 superstar Tom Hanks has been crowned America’s favourite movie star in a new online countdown.

Hanks, 59, whose latest film Bridge of Spies is up for six Oscars, topped a Harris Poll that surveyed more than 2,200 adults in the US about the best Hollywood actor-actress, reported Variety.

Hanks also nabbed the title in 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2013. Jumping up two spots from last year, Johnny Depp was runner-up.

Depp portrayed notorious gangster Whitey Bulger in 2015’s Black Mass. Neither Hanks nor Depp is up for a best actor Oscar, despite early buzz surrounding their performances. Both were also snubbed for a Golden Globe nomination.

Denzel Washington, who was absent from the big screen in 2015 and topped last year’s list, fell two positions to America’s third favourite movie star. The Training Day actor was honoured with the coveted Cecil B DeMille Award earlier this month at the Globes.
